thats one of Chris's 2 bikes that I got my feet wet on 2 wheels, and got me into CB's (hence the 750 purchase). Love that f*cking bike.

1997 Chevy S10ss (sold)
1995 Eclipse GS-T (sold)
1998 Yamaha Zuma(retired)
1978 Honda CB750four (project cafe-racer)
1990 Silverado Z71 White Lightnin!

"young kids... old school." a mans outlook on Chris (Xx954HxCafexX) and I pulling up on the old (yet still very badass) Hondas.

No Problem

My wife is cool with it, cause we have been together 11 years married and 12 together and she knows that besides my family that is my other love. I just returned from Iraq (for the 3rd time) and she laughed cause I had a picture of the family with me and a pic of the bike. Yea yea........good luck to all the grouch spouses

Not married (thank God) but whenever things start to get serious, I have "the talk" which consists of telling them that I will more than likely be out riding on 95% of the nice days, and they can either accept that, or go their own way. I had a bike before they came along, and as far as I'm concerned, if I have to choose sides, I'm going to keep the one that doesn't bitch about the other.

I think there has to be two way acceptance of each others habits etc. I don't care if a lady hates motorcycles, but if she comes to the track and hangs with me and my friends and all some of the time, it's workable.

Talking Second love of our lives!

My husband loves his R1 ! He loves riding so much he bought me a 250 ninja about a year after he mastered his. I only started riding because he wanted us to do it together. BuTTT, now, I love it!!!

Anyone have spouse story surrounding your interest in sportbikes/riding. Obviously I'm bored again!

My wife enjoys riding with me, but I know she's scared to death of what might happen to me. She knows I'm more aggressive when she's not with me, and living in vacation hell, I know, unnerves her sometimes.
