Sooo I just bought a new motorbike. Need to break the news to my wife now. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

ยท ยท Toot! ยท 11 ยท 0 ยท 18

@kev Ooh. Pics or it didn't happen!

Also waiting for your wife to break you ๐Ÿ˜‹๏ธ

@thumb she took it on in the end - sheโ€™s brilliant, thatโ€™s why I married her! ๐Ÿ˜

It doesnโ€™t get delivered until next week, but this is the little guy.

@thumb thanks! Will be a nice little machine to pootle about on. Will be SUPER easy to work on too, which will be a nice change from the more modern stuff Iโ€™ve owned for years.

@jamie @kev Naw. Someone's getting told off tonight. Go @kev's wife. ๐Ÿ˜

@celia @jamie ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ she hasnโ€™t noticed in the past, but this one is VERY different from my current bike.

She took it relatively well. A week on the couch and I think Iโ€™ll be fine ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@kev @celia @jamie I agree: put the motorbike a week on the couch.

@kev you are brave. You bought THEN asked? That's Herculean!

@nathan Iโ€™m a firm believe of asking for forgiveness rather than permission. ๐Ÿ˜Š

@oilyfish itโ€™s the law here in the uk. Iโ€™d never dream of not wearing one anyway

@kev Surprise, surprise ๐Ÿ˜† Maybe you garnish the message with a little gift for her? ๐Ÿค”

@pantos isnโ€™t being married to me gift enough? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@greenpete I donโ€™t get it until next week, but this is what I bought.

@kev Oh wow, I wasn't expecting that!
When I close my eyes all I can see is Japanese bikes ๐Ÿคฃ

@greenpete Iโ€™ve always had Jap bikesโ€ฆand one Aprillia. I want something smaller (this is a little 650) and easy to work on. Just for pootling about on the twisties in Wales.

@kev I will make a post while you do that in a snap.

@kev Have nice and safe rides with it! ๐Ÿ‘
