Need advice ... I think my wife is up to something ...

okay ... I've been having some carb issues with my bike and have not had any luck getting things worked out. So my wife says "Maybe this is a sign to get a new bike."

Okay ... so what is she up to? I think she's trying to set me up for something else ... like you can get a new bike if I can get . I'm a little nervous about the situation...

What do you guys think?

Or, maybe she doesn't want the hubby she loves out on a bike she doesn't feel confident in. You guys always assume the worst.

I'm going to go with Sarcasm? Or maybe you've dumped so much money into this bike you could have bought a new one already???

How was the statement said? With a sweet smile, then it's sauce for the goose and ask what she wants. With eye rolling and sarcasm... You ain't gettin' a new bike.


Besides there are 8 women to every 10 men, I bet it's not .

She was actually quite serious about it. It was like the thrid night in a row that I was wrenching on the bike and she just kind of said it out of the blue. She's even brought it up a couple times since, so i think she's serious ... I'm just wondering if she's setting me up for something.

Then again, she's the one that encouraged me to get my Fender Jaguar even after I already had a Fender Strat ... an Ibanez Iceman and a fretless P-Bass.

I'm hoping it's the

I bet she is just doing the "economically correct" thing and thinks you should have a nice new bike that she can feel comfortable with you riding and not have to spend money on (except for mods)

Im in friendswood, should i come over and pick her brain and see what she is thinkin for you?
