If you can't decide, buy half of each. She can have new cabinets with no shelves or doors, and you can have the left exhaust.

You think it ends with cabinets? You'll need counter tops, appliances, floors and new plumbing fixtures as well. Buy the exhaust, set the relationship direction straight up front. Let us know how it goes.

My wife and I went to Home Depot several months ago and had the kitchen design guy do a plan for us. By the time he was done, with the cabinets and counters my wife wanted, the bill was $25,000. Needless to say, the kitchen still hasn't been done.

If your fiance's tastes are anything like my wifes, you can tell her that all the cost of the Yoshi's will get her is a nice wine rack anyway.

Not worth it for Yosh. But, for Satos ... dump her a$$! Women are easy to replace.

I'm with Dave on this one.
I had a dream last night that I was riding a 919. This is an obvious sign, to me anyway, that you should get your cans. If it's true love, she will understand.

Add new cabinets to the gift registry! The exhaust will be like a pre wedding gift to yourself. Good luck bro!

Dude... you came on a motorcycle forum, asking guys who love bikes and all the kit that goes with it whether or not you should buy exhaust?

Stacking the deck?

I think we all know the answer you wanted to hear, and since you didn't get it from your fiance, you are getting it from us!

BUY THE CANS!

If she's already attempting to shoot your "other woman" it's a glimpse into your future. Wear your pants and get the pipes.

Yeah, you have to train them early. Just watch the dog whisperer. You have to establish dominance.

I painted our old cabinets and saved a fortune. I told my SO if we had new precision drawers we wouldn't get exercise opening them.

Marry a girl who rides also so that way the argument is who gets new gear and parts.

well the reason she wants the new cabinets is we are trying to sell my house for a better one. so i can either come home to a crappy house with loud cans, or come home to a nice house with fart sounds coming out the 9'er.

Good choice. Knew you would make the right decision. All you had to do was ask the guy in your avatar. He would of told you like it is.

yeah but then who'll have the funds for new cans after buying a new house
you'll probably have to sell the bike to paint the bathrooms
where does it end?!
if all else fails.......baffelectomy!

Its better to regret something you have done than something you haven't done. If you buy them, she might yell a little, but if you don't, you will keep on wanting them. The price of the cans isn't gonna slow you down getting a new house anyway. Finding the money afterwards can be tough! Buy the cans!

It is easier to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission! Just do it and pay for it later. Besides it's your paycheck right...
