Because I am smarter than you, I don't bother with them so I can not deal with their petty drama.

I believe the last girl I was actually going to try for, I ended up finding out she smoked weed and partied a lot. Before and after that I never tried or put any effort into it. Unlike you, who gets bitched at 24/7 then stays with her. I thought you said you run ****? Stern wears the pants in your relationship.

P.S. I love how we're arguing on fest yet talking civil on AIM about your mill gear getting to Kentucky.

we "fight" because she thinks she will never be as important as my car. thats why she wants me to drive it up there, to prove she is more important. but i think we all know my car is not going to even attempt that trip.

my last situation was like that. i just ended up saying itll cost me more money to pay for the damages to the car then to just sit here and sit on my ass. you find your way in and see me. week later, i was single again. worked out good for me. more bike time, less gas money, and the cars working good again.

she tries all the time to get me to bring my car down. she tried to call me out in front of her friend(who hates me) that my car isnt that low and would be fine. her friend instantly sided with me and said there is not a chance or hope in the world of my car making it up there. she got pissed off and stopped the its not that low" routine. we have had these arguments for years.

just like everything else with women, when its making her irritated the car is too low and the ride is too rough. but when she wants something herway the car is not low at all and can travel long distances.

i love me some rough road tatter bouncin action.

You just gotta take a different approach, embrace the 4x4 status, toss some 18s on that biotch and let er ride high!

e30 on 18's is always FTL. e30 4x4 is always FTL.

i could never convince myself to do that.
