Riding a Kawasaki is cheaper than to walk - serious! So no reason to lie!

This will bite you someday...

Let me tell a story about a friend:

We used to shoot and hunt together, and that is not a cheap sport either.
His wife started complaining about all the money he spent on this.
No worries, he agreed that he will give her equal amounts to spend on whatever she wants, she was happy.
He then arranged with a friend who owns a gunshop for dummy invoices, so if he spends R1000.00 he gets and invoice for R100.00m which he then "forgets" on the dining room table.
Wifey sees this, asks for her R100.00 and all is well.
This went well for a number of years, as his wife hated guns and gunshopsand never visited gunshops.

However...

His birthday came up, and wifey thinks she should treat him to this new Ruger SS .357 Mag he wanted, and seeing as he has been so good over the years, she buried her hatred for guns and walked into a gunshop to put down a deposit on his behalf.

He gave up hunting that year, selling all his guns, him and the wife are now avid golfers...

I dont lie to the mrs about the prices, but not gonna lie to you either... Its an expensive hobby.

Just on the top 3 bikes:

Insurance just over R1k a month.


K1200S R2.5k pm installment
+- R200 bucks a month for tyres (2 sets a year)
+- R250 a month for services (spread accross the year)

G650X R1.5k pm installment
+- R80 bucks for tyres (also 2-3 sets a year)
+- R120 a month for services (spread accross the year)

RMZ (bought cash) uses about R380 worth of oil a month (friggin 6 hours worth of synthetic)
R300 bucks on avg for tyres a month. (3-4) sets a year.
Then other bells and whistles for offroad riding. (kit, cleaning products etc) havent paid attention to that cost...

pit bikes and rest im not including...

few K a month unfortunately.
KTM 990 - Wiff twee pype and loud A-F!

I'm not a hooligan, my throttle grip got stuck! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I am having the 950 serviced and a few cheap mods done. Superfoxi is doing the work, so being a one man show I have purchased all the bits and pieces to save him time and hassle. He always asks me for a list of the work I want done. So today I add the prices to this list, oil,plugs etc and added it with a guess of how many hours work. I keep telling him his hourly rate is to low. I was shocked what the total came to. I still think money well spent. If you compare the price of expensive oil(I use the good cheap type) it goes further, last long than the same volume of good middle priced whisky.

Few mnths ago both my bikes was due for their 40 000km service, and set of tyres each. That alone cost me R9000. Without Installments, Insurance, bling or fuel for the month :peepwall:

My wife knows what my hobby is ripping me every month, that is why she has two cars I pay for  >:D

She just said, you have two bikes, why cant I have two cars? I lost that argument beeg time  :'(

But I must say, if I tell her "Liefie ek fookoff vir n week met die bike Kaap toe" then she just say enjoy, and no arguments in my house about it  :thumleft:

Im at least two weekends a month away on my bike alone without her making a fuss about it.

Sometimes on a Thursday she will ask me to please go away the weekend, she needs some rest. Blykbaar is ek n handvol en put haar uit  :imaposer:   :imaposer:   :imaposer:   :imaposer:

I don't lie about the prices. The boss rides her own bike, so we shop together for our bikes.

Hopefully it is a token of my love for her that I am investing in this safety gear and all. Good excuses to get leg over. - Here is a new pair of riding pants. Now open up and relax.
