You know it's bad when you withdraw 5k from 401k fund for a new suspension. Is there a 12 step program for moto mods?

Maybe we can start one, introduce yourself with an example of how ridiculous you prioritized money to a bike mod.

I already had two house payments and two car payments. Now I have two bike payments. How bad is that?

If u do that much in mods u better get extra coverage on your insurance. Or u may lose in a claim if need be . And keep all slips to prove it

Hi Joe. Welcome to the Club.

This is more like Group Therapy for Our Addictions.

We give each other support and courage... even when our girlfriends/wives grow jealous of the attention and mods we add to our bikes. :)

my wife told me the other day that she doesn't understand my "addiction" to motorcycling (in a light humored way thankfully).

I started crying and told her that I should go to rehab at either Pocono raceway or NJMP and get the proper treatment that I need to get better.

That's covered by my medical insurance right?

When I teach my MSF classes part of my introduction is "Hello, my name is George, I will be your RiderCoach, and I am a motorcycle addict. I am here to share my addiction."

Usually gets a few laughs.

I have had 20 bikes in my 50 years. Guess I qualify as some sort of addict. But I don't want to share. More bikes for me.

You have a 401k? Mine got cleaned out years ago. My retirement plan = Learn to love the taste of Alpo

I only get to ride my fz09 on weekends. But during the week, getting on that bike is ALL I think about. A bit of a problem/obsession I must admit.
My 1st bike was a vStar 250 so switching to this one was a like big holyShXt for me. Every time when a package comes in my wife says "I know what's in there." and I'll have to explain. The hardest one was why "I need 3 helmets". Just got a pair of Icon Justice touch screen leather gloves too and I've been blowing my $ on these as well:
o R&G Rad Guard (silver)
o MRA screen (nicely make!)
o SwMotech Front slider
o Woodcraft slider.
o spray painted, gold "air intake" mesh

When the opportunity to Cabo came up, I passed b/c I'd rather put my money towards upgrading the suspension and exhaust.

I am an addict. Now let's join hands..."keep coming back"
