Same here. The only way my woman gets hot over my bike is by wishing she could run it over with her car. (not with me on it, luckily)

Your lucky...mine would do it with me on it if she was on her way to work and I was in the right lane!

My wife could one day make it look like my garage has been burglarized with all my bikes gone. Yes, she could be like that...

No new bike for me this year. I figure buying a titanium bike should last quite a few years.

Most definitely. My 1993 Litespeed is still running strong....although it's been converted to a SS just recently and running even stronger.

Vance, don't you know by now that Go_Fast is all talk, no action?

He keeps saying, "I'd hit it. I'd hit it. I'd hit it.""

Yet I have seen no conclusive proof that he's hit anything. Me included.

My two new bikes cost 1/3 of that. Does that mean I can buy another?

Oh, I can find a way. Don't get me wrong, I love my bike. It's my mindset on all the possibilities that scare me.

I have a '07 Specialized Roubaix Pro, However she was purchased on Oct of '06.

Does that still count... and if you say it doesn't.. well that's just not nice....

It's actually somewhat appalling how many SoCal BFers have bought bikes this year. Is this unusual? Was it the same in 2005 and 2006? How many bikes you all you folks have?

I actually have 5 bikes. 2 of them are beaters that I will dismantle and scavenge for parts soon. I bought 4 of them within the past year.

My newest bike, after it's first ride.
