Hey guys i have a problem my wife of 30 years will not let me park my super glide in the living room. I told her we could use it for a tree and put lights on it. up here in Wis. it gets cold and snowy and about this time of the year i start to get the shakes. lets see i haven't heard a harley run for 2 or 3 weeks, much less seen my bike it sets in garage all coverd up. so you tell me how to convence her it would look good in the house. i know a lot of you harley people live in warm states and can ride year around, and do not have this proplem. i don't have a trailer and my bike is not a trailer queen. but my wife is the queen of the house. so help me out .

Ladies and Gents... the Top 10 reasons Slammin' Sammy get's to keep the Hawg inside are............


1. If you rev the engine near the furniture it is dusting...

2. Let the engine get warm and you can hang wet clothes on it and they'll dry more quickly..

3. When your sweet bride is tired you could let her ride it to the bathroom..

4. You can park it in the bedroom and have role playing, you know, you're the motorcycle cop and you stop her and :eek:...

5. Remind her that you'll see her and the kids more often, if the ol' dyna's not in the garage..

6. It makes a great nick nack/conversation piece/art exhibit..

7. It generates heat, therefore lowering the furnace bill..

8. You can stand by it when you brush your teeth and use the chrome as a mirror..

9. It gives you an extra chair when you have those unexpected guests...


But hte mooost important reason is....


10. Cause Da#% it,,, I SAY SO!!!


Glad I could help.....

Sammy, you're going to have to make a choice. It's a tough one but you'll just have to get rid of the old girl. You can always get a new wife, but a Harley. You gotta take care of that baby. She's really special!!!!!

Happy Holidays. Ride safe and good luck in talking the wife into buying your idea. ;)

You should trade it in on a Honda. No guilt leaving that in the garage.

Sammy try singing this at home. It may well work.

your rumble.
Your tank does shine

but you go nowehere
in wintertime.
O Harley D

What happiness befalls me
When oft at
joyous Christmas-time
Your form inspires
my song and rhyme.
O Harley D
O Harley D,
make my wife,
see you like me.

Your riders
teach a lesson
That constant faith
and hope sublime
Lend strength and
comfort through all time.
O Harley D
O Harley D,
this year you'll be
my Christmas tree.

In order now.

(1) The last time I was "taken around" was better than 20 years ago and I had leg chains on. ( I am better now thank you.)

(2) Apparantly you have not noted my sig line. Roosters sing just before the sun rises. Then he runs around and jumps every female in sight.
(Better check with the we in "we invite you". )

(3) I live in Houston and do not understand the last comment. What is "esnow"? ( Is that some sort of cyber Coke?) LOL!

Slammin Sammy, my baby was in the kitchen last winter, and I just got er in last weekend. My SO doesnt have a problem with it. It is very interesting having a Harley sitting at the breakfast table. We have a pretty big old house, so it doesnt take up much room

Chrome beauties in the living room

Hey Slammer,
You cant leave that poor chrome beauty in the garage...Its sinful. I suggest you offer to get her a ride of her own, then she will see it differently. This will be our fourth year of the downstairs living room(a.k.a. winter showroom) or more affectionately known as the hawg pen.
We have also had a matched set for the last two winters, and this year its 2001 Road King Classic for the old man, and my beautiful new 2002 FXDL, diamond ice with lots of chrome trim...Here in Pa we just put them in the "showroom" a couple nites ago. Miss riding them already, but its the nicest pieces of furniture we own...
Good luck
Lola
You could also use the Dyna as a prop to get some precious pix of your OL

If you leave your bike in the garage, it might get dusty. :)

I've had some bikes that I have parked in the living room at one time or another. I've also had bikes that I would not dare bring inside since they had a bad habit of "marking their territory". Some, I think they might have been an old WW-II aircraft radial engine in the previous life.

(take THAT you zombie thread time cops :) )

Had the same problem with wife not wanting my 99 FXR in the house. Bought week-end place, near the lake, with no garage. Solved the night time storage problem by removing one window in the sun porch and replacing it with a 48 inch wide door!
