Unless she is setting me up and brain washing me in advance. Dear god, girls are so mean.
Ronaldo, do not listen the posters here in the "don't ask permission, ask for forgiveness" camp! As a woman, and I won't try to speak for all women, but a good number of us HATE that form of manipulation! Trust me, employ that tactic and she won't go to bed mad, she'll stay up all night plotting her revenge.
My method for upgrading the bike has been this: I bought a used cruiser for $50 and as a direct result, lost 15 lbs. He was impressed, so I bought a better used bike and lost another 20 lbs., tightened up the glutes and built up some quads. Then I casually pondered out loud, "I wonder what would happen if I had a faster bike......." He brought me home a faster bike. I believe he thinks the bikes have been good investments.
