Never should have left

Hello all,
After a divorce in December 2014 I traded my 2001 Goldwing for a Sport bike. Since I've owned a 2005 BMW K1200S, 2013 YAMAHA STRYKER, 2007 KAWASAKI ZX14, 2013 KAWASAKI ZX14R, 2001 BMW K1200LT and a 2011 KAWASAKI VAQUERO. My current wife recently purchased a 2013 Goldwing F6B. I became so jealous that I stopped riding with her for a week. Yesterday morning I rode her bike to the local market and once I got home I jumped on my Vaquero, rode to my favorite dealership, divorced my Vaquero and married a beautiful 2015 Goldwing Anniversary Edition with only 5 miles on the odometer. I'm happy to be married to a Goldwing again.
Sincerely,
Big Game James

In a round-about way, sounds like you traded her in for a younger model ... (The bike!!!).

Welcome back and howdy from Texas.

Wink Been there, Done that!

Got left, went through 3 or 4 trades and ended up with a '16 Goldwing and a new wife (13 years now). 2 best decisions I've ever made.

That's one of the big advantages of a motorcycle. A motorcycle doesn't mind if you go out and ride another one once in a while. Or have multiples in a stable. Wives tend to be less understanding.

I'll go totally green and give up my GoldWing when Al Gore gives up his charter jet.
