Things went wrong for me when Mrs Boomstick came home and found a bass in her wardrobe..........I got away with that (just) until the following week when she found some bike leathers hanging there too (in fairness the bike leathers had been hanging there a while - they were just hidden by the aformention bass).


OK - now bikes are easier. There are fewer of them to hide and for some reason each one is safer that the one it replaces. Don't say: "It knocks out a genuine 160HP at the back and I can't keep the front wheel down." Rather: "Look, it's got ABS and servo assisted brakes.".

I've got 1 bike (shhh ... 160 at the rear wheel) and 7 guitars, and it's the numbers that cause the guitar problems. What's domestically sensible about adding another guitar? Are you sub-letting space in that wardrobe?

Maybe you could start by not calling her Mrs Boomstick?

That's so true - my current japanese crotch rocket does 160mph, pulls stonking wheelies and goes round corners like it's on rails.

I really got it for commuting on................great fuel economy, and better for the environment.

I've hit a snag with guitars - in the past I've sold some, bought some, bought some more, sold some more. Unfortunately I'm at the point where I really like the ones I have, so it's harder to sell and replace, I just seem to keep adding......

I'm still waiting for my last guitar purchase to arrive , the Rickenbacker 360/12 Jetglo that Mrs.Tokaiguy gave me for our 25th anniversary. Last week she asked if I thought I might have topped out on guitars and related items. Did I have enough? My answer was ofcourse "Not nearly"! She wants us to get something we can enjoy together... Her suggestion was that since our Daughter will be going to college next year and we will be alone why not get a new Corvette C6! so we can have fun on the weekends!!! Then she gave me a brochure regarding arangements to fly to Kentucky and the Corvette facility ,take the museum tour and drive the new car back to Dallas! I think she might be on to something!! TG

Indeed there are some US guitars you should try. Why not fly to Kalamazoo with Mrs. Tokaiguy and return with a new Heritage H-150? I would prefer that anytime.

I just finished my Doctor of Law and Mrs. Schnabelrock wants to give me a present. She thinks of a watch. Well, allright ...

I just order what I want and keep them at a friends house till things cool down. I have many guns and fishing poles, the guns just go into my safes though and she can't tell the difference. I find it much harder to pull off with my Tokias, she admires the way they look.

a watch...good idea. I have about 50 watches, mostly older Japanese made with a few swiss mades.
I`m pretty close to that number with guitars too, including the ones I sent to Canada `till I get back.
I`d be happy with a nice old Grand Seiko or a Citizen Chrono Master.

Watches are not so good for me. Under heavy braking their straps tend to come apart and I lose them. So I'm already in trouble for buying too many watches.

It's got to be something that isn't a guitar, a motorbike or a watch. And it has to fit in Bruceboomstick's wardrobe ...

How about axes? They're practical and useful for domestic chores like firemaking and homebuilding. Those clever Japanese even make wooden ones that are safe for children to play with.

I tried that. The pins that hold the straps in place are just as feeble and they're more expensive to replace.
