Our money, Regi, all in joint accounts.
It wasn't permission to spend the money so much as whether she found the bike comfortable to pillion on, ie an improvement on the 2015 TEx.  She did.
We are a team, but go our own way as we wish.  She goes OS without me, I ride around Oz without her.  But I like having her on the back when we ride to Ulysses AGMs etc.
If you are in a relationship where you do whatever you like, even if your partner totally disagrees, then I suspect a relationship that won't last, or else an unfair, uneven domination.  (We have a 40th wedding anniversary coming up.)

 :460: After 45 years of never being his & hers or him & her, but always being ours & us, I totally agree, brother. Any major purchases have always been discussed & at least partially agreed upon by both of us which is the way most successful marriages ( and business partnerships) flourish. :821:

Figures are a pain to understand, i got it slightly messed up in my original post.

The total amount i pay is £13454.09, don't ask where the .09 came from, mystery of the financing world i guess.

Thanks for the reply. I must admit I'm sure they just pluck a random number out of the air sometimes.
I keep looking at gen 3s but I have done so much to my gen 1 and am still loving the bike that I wont even take a test ride as I know I'll do something silly.

My wife is my enabler.  She convinced me I needed the Tiger.   Her mothers day present was an Indian Roadmaster, she sat on the back and said "we are getting this bike.".  Because of my wife I have 2 bikes in my garage.   Never letting her go.
