Is that really a "typical" scenario? Girl likes bike and everything is great...girl doesn't get as much attention 2 weeks down the road....girl resents bike (and You).... you break up?

I've tried dating guys who don't ride...and it sucks. They get jealous that you're going out with the "guys" and I'm sure it's the same for the guys.....they are getting shit about going out with their boys and getting accused of picking up girls. (which may or may not be true!) I really think that you have to date someone who rides their own for it to be successful....someone who understands the NEED to go ride and someone who understands the NEED to just be out there, seperate from your significant other where you each have your seperate riding friends but also have a group where you both ride together.

I dunno...I just think it's so much easier when both partners ride their own bikes. Those who ride together, stay together?

Agreed

I see what you are saying. When it is a common hobby things do work better. With that being said, my past experiences has mirrored this guys. My girl loved my bike at first till here agenda didn't allow for it. So it may have been a little extreme to say this is typical. Sorry if I offended any Ladies that are true to the sport. Now posers are another story.

Well i must say, i find it funny (the post that is). .. i was married once and he didnt ride sportbikes that is.. he had a chopper, i should of known right from the start it was going to be a problem. We both had sleds i have a 900 he had a 700 another problem for him, he was jealous of a girl who can ride both toys better than him and can hang with the boys. Scary part is men always claim to want a girl who is into hp toys,,, well either you love us girls who are or you become pissed that we can ride next to you and not behind you crying to wait for us...
I do believe that you have to have your own bikes and your own group of friends.. IM not from Det. but im from Syracuse NY and i am in a girl club, we all ride together, and have a blast. Dont get me wrong we also ride with the fellas, and have just as much fun. just my 2 cents..
*does a stoppie and waves bye*

I think that a little friendly competition within a common hobby is nice....but it's bad when someone's head is too big. If someone has the attitude that they are better than everyone else, things will never work out. If someone constantly brags about how good they are, how fast they go, how much better they are then so-n-so, then egos get in the way of the relationship and it's doomed from the start...even friendships. Besides, if you have skills, you never have to say a word! I would HATE to try something new just for my hubby or b/f to say, "Yeah, but look what *I* can do." Doesn't matter if it's water skiing, jet skiing, riding....Everyone wants to be recognized.

my girl doesn't ride, and she hates being on the back of my bike going faster than 25mph. The only way I can keep her happy is to make sure that she has something else to do while I'm riding, out at bike night in royal oak, or otherwise. THe only time she gets pissy is when I go off riding and she's left sitting at home with her parents.
