I don't usually tell my g/f about my close calls, but it was hard when my chest was bleeding and my mirror was hanging off

i didnt get into sportbikes (or bikes in general) until we had been married for a year. she thinks im trying to change myself so others would like me more but i only have one friend that rides. she had a family member pass away from a motorcycle accident and doesnt want that to happen to me. i guess i understand her thinking but she doesnt understand how riding gets in you and you become passionate about lifestyle. suddenly you want to change the clothes you wear and how your hair looks and she has threatened me on more than one occasion to leave if i dont "knock off the nonsense" she hates it, i love it, but i love her. any advice from someone whos been there before?

Nah... used to have the problem where the spouse complained I was on motorcycles or doing motorcyle things too much (had two bikes at the time). Now I have three bikes and plans for several more, and no spouse. Life is much easier now

And now she's an ex

OT... but you got any pictures of your CB550? That's a dream bike for sure!

Sweet! Is that the original paint or a repaint!? That looks awesome. And if it's a repaint, it's a help of a period correct job

Tank looks real good. Hard to get people to duplicate the detail in the striping nowadays.

Figured the yosh wasn't period correct
