    I just blame Jerry. Hell, he's over 800 miles away and what are the chances my wife will meet him.. I say that the parts I receive, or upgrades are basically pennies because they are used and from other skis that Jerry gets really cheap. I also explain that alot of them are for experimental purposes and as long as I post the results for others to see, I get a really good discount. It's really not lying, it is just keeping the relationship strong as well as the hobby...

    That`s good, roll your eyes into your head and say "Jerry told me to do it"
    Nah!, all I have to do is let her shop on QVC for awhile or send her off to the stores/shops as often as neccesary! ...PR...

    i always use the "maintenance / preventative measures" for my mom... my dad grew up building cars and racing so he has a damn good clue what i'm doing to my ski, but he don't say anything bc he sued to do the same.... i jsut tell mom it's to make the jetski mroe envonrionmentally friendly and safer and in the long run more trouble free

    Just concentrate on the word "SAFER" If your wife, GF, Mom, Dad or Grandmother really love you they won't mind you spending money to ride on a "safer" ski. After all, what is more important, another pocketbook or pair of shoes OR a ski on which you will be less likely to get hurt. No matter if it's 90% lie, they won't know the difference.

    If they still make a fuss...well then you know how deep the love is !!!!!

    My wife know's to much about the doo's because she has her own.I can't hide anything from her,but she's cool with some of the mod's.I'll just have a faster rxp than her.She said she don't care about the mod's on her rxp,just as long as it get's her where she's going.

    Man guys ya'll need to start putting the paints back on in ya'lls relastionship! Let them know who the boss is.

    ANYWAY, my wife understands how much I hate to sit around. It makes me very agitated. I have always got to be doing something or she says I get to be acting like an ass, so she wants me to keep occupied in the garage. Even if it is mods to the ski. She knows how much I stick to our budget. So what ever I am doing she is OK with. I guess this is why we have been togethere for 16 years.

    Just let her have your credit card, I'm sure she'll forgive you. Lol, I would at least anyways, but not without you paying for it.

    You don't explain shit, in my case I just remember her we agreed I am the one that works and therefore has no boundaries for toys.
