Smile Pms?!

My husband is suffering from PMS--Parked Motorcycle Syndrome. He looks at the LT in the garage, and sits on the seat. He surfs this site all the time, trying to get his bike fix, listening to other bikers talk shop, and living vicariously through them.

Are there any other PMS sufferers that can offer my hubby some consolation?

Thanks a bunch!!!

Cheryl

Snowmobile?? Or do like I do. Ride the John Deere plowing snow. It gets you out in the wind at a top speed of 7 MPH

I don't have a good solution. I look at my bikes every day and think about what I need to do to get them road ready for another year.

As far as moving south, no thanks. I prefer frost bite to sunburn.

Kind of sounds like me, going out to the garage dusting the bike off and sitting on it making strange sounds. Then it's off to the dealer to make a nuisance of myself.


Aaaaah, but spring is just around the corner and then we can ride all we want . So my suggestion is to keep him busy with the honeydo list, He'll be amazed how fast spring will arrive DAMHIK.

Just point him to any of the threads by Ari "the Farkle-Freak-Finn" Ignatius, user name pozo_izquierdo. Here are some suggestions:

One Two Three Four Five Six

That should keep him busy for a while.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Just tell him that I have had NMS for over three years now. Then he will feel better.
