Wife want your Royal Enfield sold?
Here's how you can keep it and her, too

I've made fun of men who run ads saying their wives are forcing them to sell their Royal Enfield motorcycle. That's just an excuse, I figured.

But it turns out some wives do want the motorcycle gone — and some guys have found a way to keep their bikes anyway.

When a CraigsList ad for a 2005 Royal Enfield Bullet appeared recently, listing rather a high price, it drew an unusual comment: Another guy placed an ad in reply! Here it is:
"Wow! $6,200 for a bike Kelly Blue Book lists for $2,770 retail and $1,870 trade-in. The bike was $4,800 retail, new.

"I had to go through the same thing. I picked up another bike and my wife said I had to sell one. So I showed her that I was trying to sell it, but no one was calling for it. ( I listed it for twice its value.) That's how I got to keep all four bikes. And if some fool wants to pay twice its value, great. If not, I get to keep all my toys.

"We know the bike he's listing sold for $4,800 new. He's just not ready to part with it."
Could it be that some guys could be that selfish, cowardly, conniving and low? What do you say, girls?
