Just curious - how much do you think he spends per month golfing? Golfing isn't a cheap sport - any more than biking. So his $100 per month limit sounds like a manipulative control maneuver. Sounds to me like he doesn't want you to ride a bike - pure and simple and instead of outright saying "no", he is going to be a pure pain in the "O Ring" about it until you start thinking it isn't worth it anymore - which it sounds like you are already on the way there - his tactics are working perfectly on you. Sorry, I have no respect for any man that would do that to someone he is suppose to love.....
Seems to me he is your best friend and supportive only when you are doing something he approves.
That was the first thing that came to mind for me too.Shorts wrote: Just a fleeting thought but, maybe your hubby had some bad/embarassing experience on a bike when he was young and doesn't want to face it or be reminded.
Yep you are right - and I also don't have respect for any woman that would try to manipulate their husband in the same manner. On the other hand, I have little patience for manipulative jerkoffs in general.Veda wrote:Then again, I bet Duffy's husband is responding the same way a lot of the wives/girlfriends of our male members of the board have responded. When it's the wives who are uninterested or trying to limit the motorcycle spending everyone just shrugs and says that's what wives do. So it's really a common scenario a lot of people here are dealing with.
