Upgrade to wife. It's cheaper, but not much.

If anyone ever looks at you and says,_ "Hold my beer, watch this,"_  you're probably going to want to pay attention.

What did you buy? My degrees.

How long ago did you buy it? Oh,... years ago.

How much did it cost? Blood, sweat, tears, and treasure.

It's about freedom.

I would beg to disagree.

Very recently upgraded myself (with a rather short "buildup"), bill seems to pile up noticeably higher//faster than before the upgrade.
Let's see... previous yearly usage, averaging around 1000 USD, 1500 USD tops, and that's actually a fairly generous amount including presents, trips, social events and such.
But... just the past 2 months (less than, actually) ? Roughly 2500 USD already, give or take (ok, that includes civil service expenses, "need this and that" wardrobe upgrades, significantly higher car fuel costs, and a honeyweek vacation). Likely to go up noticeably more soon enough.

Don't know about you, but to me that looks noticeably more expensive.
And after you eventually//probably add the "kids" option, you're financially screwed for sure.

Armalite AR-10 National Match. Cost me around 2 grand (which I wouldn't have had if not for the money I got from the government for buying a house last year).

94/95 Kawasaki ninja ZX11. Cost me around US$ 9500,00 . Some three months ago.

Ps.: I live in Brasil, so it's not too much money for a 16 years old bike. I know that I could buy almost a new ninja 1000 in the USA.
