Edmund, dude, judging by the car you drive, I thought you were a balding guy with huge spectacles in his late thirties.

Hey thanks . Yea trust me its just great. But until I actually owned and rode one I didn't believe what a lot of people said about owning a bike here. Its scary initially and risky always to ride on the highways and many times else where too mainly due to SUV's and trailers. The never see you and the wind they displace, displaces you off the road anyway, about insurance I had a nightmare too initially it was 2grand for a year comprehensive, then after 6 months I got liability and then a miracle happened. I came across State-Farm Insurance. They're a boon to bikers. It costs me lesser to comprehensively insure my bike with state-farm than minimal liability insurance with Geico. It costs 400$ for 6months with State-Farm. They make you take 12months min. though and if you're new with them then or have not owned a car for more than 2 years then you need to insure your car with them too but who cares, its so cheap. I almost fell in love with that aunty who gave me the quote. Tears rolled down my eyes, the world was once again a beautiful place .... okk thats enuf of bs from me .
I enquired with all major insurance guys like Geico, Progressive bla bla about a brand new Suzuki GSX1000R, K6 and they all quoted me 6000USD for a year comprehensive for a bike that costs 11K. ***....
I look forward to owning the GSX next year only because State Farm.
p.s. dam this is a state-farm advert. LOL
You definitely should own one, if you want to convince your wife about the motorcycle, my serious suggestion is that you rent a cruiser one day and take your wife for a spin on the bike on a lone country road one-day. She'll enjoy the ride definitely and then you can buy watever you want, cruiser sports bike or whatever. Dam, this reply has become like a big essay. :P anyway I love that corvette man, and even more the G35, was wondering if its 6-spd manual ?
Looking forward to the US meet at indy.

My license got suspended, 4 speeding tickets in two months and all due to sheer bad luck! ughh... horrible days, i drove for the next 365 days without a license and without getting caught now thats sheer awesome luck! Insurance was just another sob story, was upgrading from my '92 probe to a '96 eclipse which was red in color the insurance was 40$ per month more than a '95 black eclipse i was getting... so i stuck to the black one. Back to the topic, here's me....
