The wife wouldn't trust me on a bike, I used to have various superbikes but she'd never ride with me!!
Maybe a refined car like the 7 was what she desired
Took awhile mind you to get her to swop her Morgan for the Cat, though once she'd driven my 7 she was hooked, her Morgan was not a nice car to drive, plenty of grunt but lethal on wet bumpy corners, bit like a TVR in fact
I feel sorry for 7 owners who never have their wife with them out blatting in the car, I couldn't handle that, I'd be on the lookout to P/EX the wife
Plentyof the 'LADS' in L7 club disagree with me on that point though.
