Question The girl in your life...

My girlfriend is scared stiff and won't go near them. She wishes I would give it up because they are "Death Rockets." I wondered how many of you were in similar situations.

Six broken bones, 8" scar across belly for internal injuries, more "war wounds" elsewhere, yeah my wife just LOVES me riding bikes. NOT !!

But she loves ME so accepts that bikes come with the territory.

Cool

A friend of mine has a girlfriend kind of like that. She doesn't like the fact that he races and she lets him know it every time he heads to the track. Most of the time he just lets it go in one ear and out the other.

You definitely left out the important choice... "She has her own bike and rides."

Wife is sooo not interested. Anyway, it's nice to have something separate to do once in a while. As long as I don't go overboard, she's pretty understanding.

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

My wife has been riding street bikes long before me!!

Needless to say, riding is a "popular" subject around our house..

My wife absolutly LOVES to ride with me, but, she has no interest in learning to ride a motorcycle herself. That's OK though, she's a great passenger, she loves sportbikes, all the gear, and the lifestyle to boot!!!
