Don't get married mate, it's over rated, instead, spend your money on things that don't tell you what you can spend your money on..........  ;D

Oh, and I spend most of my money on my bikes, according to my wife..............  ::)
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I'm finally at a stage that just maintenance and the occasional farkel are required so 2015 should be about 2%.

That's true you come to a point where there's not much left to do. Then go out a buy another and start that whole process over.

I've got 5 bikes on the road, so just registration, insurance, and maintenance keeps me poor. God help me when I finish all my other projects............ ;D

Less than zero. Ex problems ( >:() has had me selling lovely stuff and no projects are getting progressed.

And I'm getting older.

This year I bought a Karcher, a fcuk off big fridge, a bloody tumble drier, and all sorts of nonsense for the garden. And a load of poncy red cushions ffs.

The RC30 gives me reproaching looks.

If the RC30 gets too uncomfortable with your pooftie money spending habits, she can always come stay with my for a bit while she cools her temper  ;D ;D

I've stupidly been keeping track of all the $ on each bike... but if I had to venture a guess, I'd say that somewhere around 10-15% goes to motorcycles, and it's still not enough. At least not to get things done on the timeline that I want them done by.

How much beer does your big arse fridge hold?  :o
