Wife says one more Farkle
« on: November 25, 2014, 12:44:54 am »
The wife says:" if I buy one more farkle we are through." I guess a trailer hitch would be the best last farkle. Can i pull a trailer with my stuff in it safely when she kicks me out? Does anyone have one for sale?

You need to think bigger.  One more farkle?  Can't a new bike be considered a new farkle.

If you want a puppy, start out asking for a pony!

I think she would kick me out for a week, besides I love this bike! New bike would be divorce for sure!
                So dmc sidecars makes one, anyone put one of those on a c-10? They just look a little small in the handle a trailer dept.

There's quite a few pulling trailers with their Connie, but getting the trailer hitch is admitting defeat.

From now on, all farkels will be bartered for... either bartering other parts, or cash.

No more buying!!  Problem solved!   ;D

How about Cadice Swanepoel, top model for Victoria's Secret, she'd look good on your bike and you wouldn't have to worry about the wife and more farkles to be sure.

Hmmmm. I asked my better half which would she prefer? Come get me out of the garage, or come get me out of a bar? I burn the midnight oil often. At home.

Sure. Why? You thinking about hauling a body?   ;)

Jim, you are a wise man.. "Knowledgable"
                                        As some of you know, I recently got my knee replaced. (Knee is Doing great!)
                                          My bride drove to Dallas and picked up a new bike for me "after" I had the knee surgery.
                                           Shortly after that she gave me the "finger".. (as in,,, this finger needs something)
                                            I took the hint, and I got her a ring to put on it...
                                              While I'be been healing, I've been buying farkles,,, 
                                                  and she's looking at more jewelery!   ???

Ride safe, Ted

Not to hijack the thread, but I saw a bumper sticker on a pick up in the Wal-Mart parking lot recently:

I just got a gun for my wife,

the short answer is yes.  there is another recent thread on the forum for someone selling their 06 model with the hitch installed and a trailer.

What you need to get is a friend with a plane......when your wife hears about how much is spent on that habit, motorcycles and the farkles will seem insignificant
