Life Insurance

My wife was dead against me getting the HP4, and then she talked with my Life Insurance agent and said okay ..... just as long as you up the Life Insurance policy to $1,000,000 bucks! So I get the HP4 Competition now and if I toast myself, well then she gets the big consolation prize!!

Lol.. I had to do some serious convincing to drop 30 gs on it..I even had to let go of my beloved R1.. now I'm looking at an insurance upper as well..
I tricked my wife into it, I told her my R1 needed me to drop another 5 grand on it, that maybe we could use that over other savings and just get a new bike lol
So I ended up selling the R1 and her monster (which she never rode)
And now she parks the car in the middle of our garage while my hp4 arrives

Now we're going at it about my new gear rofl

It's been the opposite for me. I fall in lust with a bike and then find a 100 reasons why I shouldn't get it. My wife was the one who argued the other side, pulled the trigger and told me I deserved it. Part of the deal is the understanding that I wear the best protective gear I can afford.

Unfortunately lost her to cancer last year but I can't imagine planning to spend the rest of my life with someone who didn't appreciate me enough to want me to be happy. Or safe. Life is just too short, unpredictable and random to not go for what makes you happy.

.02 from an older survivor. On another note, can't understand why guys on the east and gulf coast, Canada are getting bikes but my dealer in Colorado says my bike won't be in until after the first of the year? WTF?

Man i feel sorry for your lost. U are right life is just too short and often unpredictable.

But most woman do not understand, u make a 100 bucks and they want to save every single penny of it, Why not spend 5 bucks to reward the hard working contributor of the family : / then he will keep bringing more and more 100 bucks home with a smile and think its well worth it lol
