Favorite Things

If your spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend does not ride a motorcycle what is your favorite, non-sexual activity to do with them?

Any of you ride horses together even though the other person doesn't like bikes? Or take bicycle rides together?

We mix things up alot. Snowmobiling in the winter has got to be my favorite. We do alot of sport touring when the weather warms up. Although we don't go as often as we'd like to lately, scuba diving also tops the list.

If we're staying local then it's golf, baseball games, dinner, or the usual stuff.

+1

The girlfriend would love this. The only horses I have access to now are my cousins, a three year old and five year old. I am scared to death of young horses. Give me on that can barely walk still.

I forgot about camping, we go at least once a month

My girlfriend and I like going out to eat. She takes me to lunch every Saturday. And we love taking long walks in the evening together.

Last year we rode together when she had a bike, and we went sailing together on the Lake. This weekend we are going camping (her first time that isn't car camping). I've never been with someone that I enjoyed spending time with so much.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

We both golf, but it's tough to regularly play together. We need to get a sitter for our 4 year old so we only get to play 6-12 rounds together a year.

Other favs...
Ski
Sail
Scuba
Sporting Clays
Skeet

I see a trend. We basically like sports. In particular sports that start with the letter S. Golf would have counted, but the word Shit was already in use.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
