Im not sure if this has ever been a thread but this year i was so excited that the wife spent some money on my hobby. My bike! Instead of me being the one to spend all the money, she browsed my internet history and got me a very nice jacket. Xelement with inside liner. Fits perfect. My first riding jacket ever.
I have seen to many pictures and videos of people going down with little to no gear and I dont want to be one of them.
The agreement that I have with the Mrs is, she gets handbags & shoes, I get gun parts. No questions asked. She got shoes I got an 18 inch barrel 1/7 twist from Lewis Machine & Tool. The bill comes at the end of the month. At this point in life, get what you want, life is just to short now.
Sometimes you get wise late in life. Mature is something else entirely different.
