Dear Abby...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Dear Abby,


I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice on what could be a crucial decision. I've suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me.


The usual signs... phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them."


I always stay awake to look out for her taxi coming home, but she always walks down the drive. Although I can hear a car driving off, as if she has gotten out of the car round the corner. Why? Maybe she wasn't in a taxi? I once picked her cell phone up just to see what time it was and she went berserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her.


Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her.


I decided I was going to park my Harley Davidson motorcycle next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole street when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my Harley, that I noticed that the valve covers on my engine seemed to be leaking a little oil.


Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the dealer?


Thanks,

Bob

Trust the Wife?

Dear Fox, To answer your question I would relate valve covers on a Harley and their chances of seeping oil to the concept of Trust. Do you trust your Harley? Do you sneak around at night and have to hide behind your Harley to actually see seeping oil or are you imagining a leak in your machine and not really the Harley. If the latter is true, go to Napa Auto Parts and buy some STOP LEAK pour it in your machine and witness the leak plug up. Warning!! Don't send your wife after the STOP LEAK as she may buy the wrong item and after she poured that into your machine, you probably wouldn't trust her again. Also she wouldn't have a well oiled machine anymore but just a gob of glub. Good luck with your purchases ABBY.: :

Dear Bob. Take the wife to the dealer Drop her off and drive home on your
Harley. Don't sweat the oil . Those Harleys are notorious for that. Some kitty litter will absord that and sweep up nicely.
You could check the torque settings of the bolts on the valve cover. Remember , don't over tighten them the gasket will not like that.

Good luck with that Harley , Bob. Signed; Abby's stand in . Sorry Abby died recently

Ahhh, yes. Harley Davidson. The most efficient way to convert gasoline into noise without the dreadful side effect of horsepower.

or,

HD rider story: "I was going really loud around this corner...."

or,

People talk about HD reliability, but I will tell you that 90% of them ever made are still out there on the road. (The other 10% made it home safely.)

Weems, take a look at us Harley riders. Most of us need torque far more than we need horsepower.

It was just a freakin joke.

I used to have a Norton Atlas. I swore I'd never buy another English motorcycle until they sealed all the leaks and magnetized the frame so all the pieces that fell of would stay with it!

(But I would like a new Triumph Tiger!)

I'd love a Triumph Rocket III, but I'd need to get a bike licence first...

C'mon Fox, Even I have my cycle endorsment!

And, just so you know, I shared this "dear Abby letter" at the road ride/colour tour Sunday and they all thought it was great.

Was a beautiful day for a road ride!

Joke ..... a freakin joke .... I'd sell my soul to have a leaking Norton.

If my "cheatin' wife" bought me a "Black Shadow" .... there are some things I could live with.

Now, if she bought me a bike that was made by a freakin' bowling ball company (AMF) .... deeeeeeevorce court.

NO! Not the dreaded Torque v. Horsepower debate!

TC, I have a MC endorsement, also. I sure miss my ride!

You know what they say about Harleys and women....they both leak after you ride them.

Dear Bob--

I completely understand the problem. Here's the solution:

Get a new Harley for your wife!

(I think it would be a good trade.)

I don't think they're made by AMF anymore. I think the family bought them back. It's a good stock. I own the stock, but would never own the bike--cept maybe the V-Rod.

Did I hijack this thread.

That was a great joke Fox.
