How does your spouse feel about Sportbikes.

I was bored and cleaning my already clean F3 one cold day recently when my normally quiet kind Wife of 20 years (who hates the fact that I've fallen in love with sportbike riding) yells to me "If that thing had a hole you'd F it", "I've seen everything" and something about being pathetic (not sure because I closed the door) when she noticed I was cleaning and sweeping the area where my bike is stored while the rest of the garage looks like a scrap yard. Anyone have spouse story surrounding your interest in sportbikes/riding. Obviously I'm bored again!

"Will you get out of the damn garage, that thing can't get any cleaner!"

"If I ever find out you have been riding wheelies, speeding, or anything that is unsafe your going to be sorry!"

"You bought something else for that damn bike." "I wish you would stop wasting the money on that death trap. I'm going to the store, I need some more make-up and hair spray!"

I have heard it all. She is getting a little better, but damn sure won't even get on it in the garage let alone ride with me. To bad

The G/F loves the bike. Had to buy her a riding jacket for her birthday so she could ride with me more (Icon Kitty - Pink). I hate riding 2 up, but oh well, sounds like I'm better off than you guys.


"If you don't love my bike you don't love me" Tear, tear, sniff...


Another thing, for X-mas she built me this little bank and put $100 bucks in it to go towards new exhaust... Sweeet.

My wife hates the fact that I'm so into motorcycles but other than that, she likes to ride with me. We've been known to scrape a peg or two riding 2-up!

Not even close...I got her on the back once and at 25 mph she made me pull over so she could get off.

Don't get me wrong, my wife has stuck by me through 10 years in the military and is a great mother to our two boys. She puts up with me and I'd be lost without her....but I still get in as much seat time as I can.

Spouse and bikes

Spouse knew before we even got married that mortorcycles are a big part of who I am and that they always would be. It was part of the package.

We have kind of a don't ask, don't tell policy. Although, I suspect that she knows more about the crazy shit I do more than I think she does.

In all fairness, she's a pretty good sport about it. She has a motorcycle license and actually owned a Ninja 500R for a while. She's seen 140mph on the back of the ZX-11 and actually thought it was a pretty cool experience.
