    what do YOU do at night when the wife isn't home?

    Myself, I wash bike parts in the kitchen sink!!! please excuse the leftover soup. The SA hubs really benefit from a good soak. She'd kill me if she saw this!!!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I sit around talking to you guys while listening to David Bowie in the background
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I washed a Land Cruiser split transfer case in the dishwasher.
    And I use the over to heat bearings now and then.
    I still feel bad about the t-case in the dishwasher though. Maybe I will come clean with that secret tonight.
    Not!

    You weakling. Real men don't use buckets! At least, unless the wife's home.

    a few land cruiser parts have been known to venture into the kitchen every now and then, but nothing like a transfer case. that's ballsy. does all your wine have a subtle 90wt nose?

    I burned a grilled cheese sandwhich (by accident, really!) before she came home so the 90wt smell was dilluted with smoke.
    But that t-case was spotless! I would do it again if needed.
    But I split the case in the garage (you have to to get it off the truck). I would not attempt spilling gear oil on the floor.
    To risky.

    I have done bike builds in the kitchen (it's heated, the barn isn't) and also run parts through the dishwasher. I've also degreased old military rifle stocks in the oven with Easy-Off. That #5 Mk1 Enfield took four separate applications......

    Well, since I AM the wife...I, uh, wash whatever I want in the sink . And, I have my own dermestid beetle colony out in a back room of the garage so every once in a while I come home with a nice little carcass which gets put in the freezer for future dermestid beetle consumption...

    Alright East Hill, I don't even know what dermestid beetles are and I'm not sure I want to. Or why you have a colony of them. Would they help take care of any unwanted "carcasses" should I need to dispose of any in the future? Just sayin'

    Uh, did you say beetle colony? I think we should be concerned with East Hill.Ant colonies are okay, but beetles?

    I have a rim I just painted drying on the dining room table right now. Girlfriend is out of town for a few days.

    Sometimes when all alone I will go on a weekend-long Ebay bender. If I was smarter, I would time the shipping from Ebay purchases to show up when she is gone instead.

    It's 11:55 on a Friday night while my gf is out of town, and I am on BF telling people what I do when my gf is out of town. That is sooo meta.

    I'd never have suspected you of harboring a beetle colony. Do you have a skeleton collection, or is this how you dispose of husbands that abuse the dishwasher?

    ^^^ How did you think she increases her vintage bike collection? Care to stop by for a spot of tea or RedBull?


    Parts in the dishwasher and oven: That's hilarious!
    The strangest one I'm aware of was my best friend decided to take a bubble bath, AND scrub down some Honda engine parts to a busted Prelude engine. His wife was out with her parents for the day. She returned to find him sitting in sooty gray bubbles, oily ring around his body, tray full of parts on the floor, and him going at it with a toothbrush on a distributor.
    She couldn't decide if it was better than to find him in bed with another woman.

    Dermestid beetles are used for taxidermy if I recall correctly to clean off bones.

    And East Hill and her husband hunt.

    Rare is it that we are apart at night. If she were I might take off on a night ride. The same affect it has on me during free days. She leaves the house, I do too. But on the bike.

    Not married now, but I used to call the babysitter, who was the spitting image of Olivia Newton-John.

    wethepeople is absolutely correct!

    But I really like luker, WNG, and Kommisar89's answers .

    The beetles are for preparing deer skulls, by the way.

    I'm going to have to start really paying attention, aren't I?

    I have a genealogy project going which is diverting my attention away from my bikes too much!

    Well due to our jobs the only evenings we spend together are typically Friday and Saturday So I do whatever. But I have done car parts in the ovens (usually drying out carbs) rebuilt engines (small 4 bangers) on the kitchen table, laced wheels in the living room and stored bicycles in the bath tub...so they wouldn't drip on the floor after a messy ride.

    Holy cow! That's what I did two nights ago.

    I play record roulette and blindly grab a few records out of the cabinets. I ended up getting a Flock of Seagulls, David Bowie and Janis Joplin. Last night, it was Prince and Frank Zappa.

    Today, it's raining so the group ride may be canceled. If so, I'll be catching up on some cycling videos and repainting the Sprite frame. It was hanging on the garage door chain and my wife opened the door. Paint job suffered mightily.
