WTF is the world coming to?

My wife is taking the state of IL motorcycle course this weekend. Oh woe is me. The party's over.

I guess I'll just sell my bikes and buy some new aluminiun siding now.

I just don't understand. I mean I thought she was happy doin' the laundry and washin' the dishes and sh!t.

The next thing you know she'll be taking flying lessons and ask to fly your Stearman.

I lost it when my wife started riding. While she is very coordinated she never rode enough to get over the new rider jitters. I couldn't ride with her. It just made me too nervous. I just had non stop visions of her buying the farm and kept thinking about what that would do to my daughter. The girls are still attached at the hip. I finally sold her bike. (She really only rode it 2-4 times a year.) I want her to spend a year in the dirt before riding street.

Good luck.

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.

I completely understand. I have 2 daughters and an 11 yr old boy. The first time she tried this about 20 yrs ago, she ran off the road and hit a tree. Luckily she was ridin' my Yammy 250 TT dirtbike and she was OK. But now her friends have talked her into it again. Four of em' are headin' out to Montgomery today for the class.

This is an issue for me as well. My fiance is not mechanically inclined AT ALL. I would love for her to ride but I wouldn't be able to take it. I worry too much as it is. She wants to ride because I do. I know it's not fair to her but I can't help it. I just wouldn't enjoy it at all because of my worrying.

Good luck to her.

Me and the wife just did the course last weekend. She did a great job, and it really boosted her self confidence.

I know exactly what you guys mean though about visualizing what could happen.

In the end it was a very good experience. She still has mixed feeling about how much she will enjoy riding on the road. I think she'd still rather have a convertible than a bike, but we will see.

She does have a greater understanding of why I enjoy riding so much though.
Her words went something like "I really love to lean. God is that fun!" This is coming from someone who hated me to weave in the straight aways!

Again good luck to her, and you.

Go ahead and wear that shirt again. It doesn't smell that bad.
Some of those Hungy Man meal don't taste too bad either.

My gf took the MSF course a couple years back and I bought her a bike that winter. She was a good rider, and never did anything to cause me worry, but she didn't ride frequently. It was the traffic and exposed feeling that she didn't like, so I ended up selling her bike.

While we did ride together I had a great time.

Just because she wants to ride doesn't mean she has to ride with you.
I never ride with my bf. He doesn't enjoy riding with me, nor I with him. I think we get two different things out of riding, do it for two different reasons... I rode with him one time, and never did it again. Never even asked to. But then again, I didn't get my bike b/c of him, I got it on my own...

When I began to ride I wasn't mechanically inclined at all. I learned everything myself, taught myself, etc. I got over that part real fast. I think I will always behind him in terms of skill, but I don't care. I don't ride because he does, I ride because I enjoy it. For me, just being on it is thrill enough.

You will get over the fear.... well you won't get over it completely but it will get better. I was scared out of my mind when my wife started riding. But now i have alot of confidence in her skills. That and it gives me more of a chance to ride when she wants to do it as well. Not to mention how good she looks on a bike!!!!!
