    I went for a 20 min ride today. Upon returning home the wife said " every time you go for a 20 min MB ride you get back in 3 or 4 hrs".
    When she's right she's right.

    Every time I tell my wife I'm going to have a beer she tells me that saying a beer = 18 to a 30 pack...

    My girlfriend just adds 30 mins to an hour to any time I say I'll be back by.

    If I had a bike as pretty as one of your builds I'd only make it home at night to pass out after a day of riding. Thankfully there isn't anyone at home to complain about my absence 'cept my cat, furry little terrorist that he is.

    "I'll be out in the garage for a little bit" is good for most of the day. My wife knows this and usually puts a movie in the VCR.

    Isn't VCR related to OCD? When I say I'll be back in a bit, that usually relates to you'll see me after dark sometime.....seriously! Just ask anyone that remotely knows me.

    Here. Well, actually it's a dual deck VCR/DVD player. I remember one time when one of my daughters was unclear on the concept, and decided to try and feed it a sandwich because "it looked hungry" (bless her little heart). I managed to open it up and blow it out with some canned air. And IT STILL WORKS! So, like, now I'm a diehard Panasonic fan.

    My wife still uses the VCR. Although she usually calls it the 8 track! She goes bananas when a dvd skips and says "I don't have that problem with my 8 track(VHS)"!
    I hope she never messes with my laptop LOL
