Top Ten Reasons Why I Won't Let Jim Buy a Harley

10. Chaps would make me look fat.

9. We'd have to get matching tattoos.

8. Leather makes me sweat.

7. Jim would want the $35k Ultra Classic Electra Glide Bike

6. I would go for the $27k Street Glide TRIKE

5. They don't carry fringed leather bras in my size.

4. I don't like bugs in my teeth.

3. Jim doesn't look good in a bandanna.

2. He would trade in our 40 ft. trailer for one of those little trailers to pull behind the bike and where in the heck would I put all my junk?


So he can't wear this shirt

We are currently in Sturgis, SD, the motorcycle capital of the world, where one week out of the year, more than 100,000 motorcyclists swarm into this town for a week of fun, drinking, riding, and yes, debauchery. I've never been to a rally, but from looking over the events calendar, a good time will be had by all.

ok, mean you are supposed to wear jeans under the chaps...maybe thats why i dont

I have to wear all the leathers - only adding pounds! The leather bra doesn't fit me, either. (Thank Gob). But I do have to say - our friends have that bike and love it. She says it's super comfortable - unlike my seat that feels like sitting on a fence post after a few hours.

We have the trailer, too. It has served as a mini-warehouse for the last two years. :-)

Gee the post was hilarious and then the bonus of imagining Brian after reading his comment! Oh my ...

I couldn't wear chaps either. No thank you.

The fact that the roads have gotten so crazy that it is almost suicide to ride a bike anymore could be another reason!

Gail said...

This one takes the cake!

I must say thank you, Brian, for painting that image.

I could never hang out with you, Pat, my muscles would be cramping so much from laughing I couldn't walk.

Great job!
