One of my mates often introduces his wife to people as ‘the current wife’. Always raises an eyebrow or two !

Told the wifey that I had to send the hubs off to the polishers along with the rest and that the “boys” told me I had to make it happen. Now she wants to know who the so called leader of the “boys” is as she would like a chat with him/her! Nominations for leadership are now open.

I never remember to lay the parts out in the same order when I take a photo of them AFTER the polishers are done...

I was showing the woman around my little shop area the other day and I was putting away parts that were recently purchased. I happened to have both stainless iso bolts in hand when she asked me where on the bike they would end up. I showed her and she noted that you can barely see them and that I should just put a dollar sign on either end of the bolts so people would know I spent good money on them. Lol! I told her most people wouldn’t even notice all the pretty fasteners I’m installing. They just don’t know. I’m not trying to impress those people. I’m trying to impress the people that do know what’s what.

I’ve been following your build and have been impressed by your no nonsense and effective approach.

Until now.

Showing your woman around the shop... letting her see the new shiny things... good grief that’s gonna cost yer...

I'm sorry. I'll try and do better from now on. I hope can have your forgiveness, kind sir. :)
