Anyone else ever get dumped for riding?

Just curious, she never said word ONE about not liking it the last few years when I was on the FZR, then I picked up the R6 late last season and I could kinda tell she was nervous about it, but honestly, both MSF courses, almost 20k miles under my belt, and im not some spastic squiddie, so I thought everything was fine.

A couple people prolly read my post about the headlights at night thing, after she heard about that she freaked out I guess, but didnt tell me. I got home last nite and her key to my apartment is there, with a note and all her stuff gone.

Basic gist of the note? "I could handle the FZR because it was slower and I thought you were going through a fad, but now with this new one and the problem you just had on it, what if you had crashed etc etc, your going to crash etc etc, this new r6 is a death trap etc etc, and long story short, im not going to be here when it happens."


I didnt think you got dear johned unless you were in the military, boy was I wrong.





(side note) I shoulda realized something was up when she stopped getting on the back.

So she checked out of a 7 year relationship without one word of warning.

If she bolted over something like that without ever even talking to you about it - I would say you're lucky. Yeah it was seven years, but at least there's no kids and no legal wrangling, could you imagine if you were married and she had a problem??? What a nightmare!

I met my husband because of his motorcycle, without it, we never would have connected.

Sorry this is happening to you man, but maybe now you'll be able to meet up with a woman that has a love for bikes, maybe even her own!

my bf had the same type of thing with his ex. She kept trying to get him to stop riding, she was so paranoid. So in the end she gave the ultimatum, me or it. There were other issues as well, so it wasnt just the bike, but it was the straw that broke the camels back I guess. I on the other hand was attracted to that, and love being on the bike with him. Though I do really want my own, hopefully soon! Oh and sorry to hear about your breakup, breakups always suck, no matter what end you are on. I guess all I can say is enjoy your freedom!

true, the whole marriage thing did cross my mind, so I know I got off lighter than I could have, seeing as how we were set up for one this summer.


Wouldnt have been too big a deal tho, hehe i woulda made a prenup that said hey u can have everything cept the bikes lol.


I dunno im kinda laughing at it but im super mad about it at the same time. Doesnt help the fact that its pouring down rain in sheets right now and I just picked up my baby from the shop.

Hi kypdurron62-

She had other reasons for leaving the relationship and the "FZR vs. R6" thing was simply a convenient excuse.

I agree with Blue Jays - it was something else, or it was a combination of other things plus the R6. Rational people don't do stuff like that; they talk about it and try to sort it out. It still sucks to break up after so long together.

She may have had a problem with it. Possibly a big one but I agree with Jays.
