You guys are HILARIOUS! I can imagine some of you being doctors and lawyers and other types of professionals, but I can also see some of you being old war vets that are used to just telling it like it is with no remorse and no apology.
My wife did agree to my buying a bike. We did have to come to some terms, but nothing I can't handle.
* I had to give up soft drinks. I'm a major Dr. Pepper/Coke fan. But the amount of money I spent on soft drinks every month is probably half the bike payment.
* The monthly payment cannot be more than $200 a month. The local Harley shop may have to negotiate a little if they want to sell me a bike. The $19,179 Road King I currently have my heart set on may have to move from that number a bit.
* She agreed to let me use our upcoming income tax return as a downpayment. We should be getting about a $3,000 return if I have my math right.
*I'll probably finance for 84 months. Not ideal, but not horrible, either.
RDK09 is right. Gotta respect the dual income thing.
Now I'm Slick As Goose Crap:
When I was getting a new Harley, I knew "Battle Ax" was going to throw a fit. So I had Sea Ray send me brochures on 35'-40' boats. Which I left laying around all over the house. This triggered all the local Sea Ray dealers calling and E-mailing prices.
One day, we just happened to stop at a H.D. dealer.
Long story short....All I had to do was promise Not to buy a $400k boat.
P.S. I hate Sea Rays!!
