Wife quit smoking

Finally, my wife stopped smoking. Two packs a day forever. It's been 3 mos. now. She always had a goal to have her own bike. It's been her dream(I thought it was me). I told if she quit, she would have the money to do it. She picks up her new Sportster today. I offered to pay for any mods she wanted. That cost me $1500. Should have kept my mouth shut, but it's worth every penny to see her not smoke.

Kudos to your wife! I bought my first new bike after quitting smoking as a reward to myself. Well deserved for her indeed.

The Sportster and your $1500 for mods will be worth every penny. That said by a guy who smoked two pack a day for 25 years. Congratulations!

Haha, she should have laid it to you with a springer upgrade! Congrats to your wife, and for you for supporting her and providing positive reinforcement.

Congratulations to Your Wife on a very difficult accomplishment.
I know how hard it must have been being a former 3 pack a day smoker.
Best of Luck to her with her New Sporty!
