As some of you may have seen, apparently the Stig does crash occasionallyâ€¦ luckily, he had decent protective gear on and it saved his skin (in many ways) and heâ€™s getting back to full recovery pretty quickly. Only problem is, the wifeâ€¦ Sheâ€™s been good as gold about the whole thing, not freaking out when I staggered in through the door with a strange biker who helped me home :grin: , through the trips to hospital for x-rays, helping me with my socks , hot water bottles, food etc. My problem was that I mentioned to her the other day Iâ€™d be able to ride it to the repair shop to get it fixed. She freaked out. Big time . Something tells me she doesnâ€™t want me back on it at all and â€œif I respect herâ€¦". Apparently it's "not all about you" and there are "others to think about too" (like poor violet elizabeth with her cracked fenders). Poo . Sheâ€™s mellowed out about me riding it the 2k's for repair now (I rode her home from the accident with a broken clavicle :twisted: ) but she still wants rid of it, either through a write off or by selling itâ€¦ I donâ€™t mind selling the bike in the short term, but deep down I know Iâ€™ll want to get another one in a few years time - but I don't want to do it against her wishes either.... Has this happened to anyone else after an off? How do I reconcile both points of view and keep us both happy? Is there such a utopia :?: ? And no, a scooter wonâ€™t keep me happy! Help...!
