I love my wife.

ME and my wife have been married for nearly 2 years now. Tonight was our first time we have really ever gone out to splurge on clothes for her.

We spent about an hour and a half trying stuff on and see how it looked and felt....

In a motor Cycle gear store!

God I love that women. This was just as much her Idea as mine they were having an after hours sale takin 10 % off everything in the store even if it was already marked down and 20% off clearance items. And we have been wanting to by her some gear before we got her bike since she has been using mine to learn to ride and it is all way way to big for her.

Walked out with Summer riding jacket. Shoei RF1000 helmet and a shaded visor for it. and some other minial riding gear and tools and the like.

My wife isn't the type for new jeans or shoes every month or so. Or into jewelry that much. But surprise her with a new Borla exhaust on her Step side sport truck and she lights up like 5 year old's first time at Disney land.

Now the search for her first bike the short list is
06 599
07 up buell xb12 ss or scg
600cbr preferably 06 and back. I hope this isn't the case can't have her out running me.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Thanks man. Her bike is on a short list of things to buy when I get back to work we have the cash but can't justify letting it go right now.

This weekend we're gonna steal My brother in laws gs500f for some riding. I'm gonna miss the 9er on that thing.

LDH, you seem to have the key to marital bliss and harmony.
You are too good to her, and she is too good to you.
And the bikes seem to benefit from it all, fancy that !

I actually met my wife at the racetrack. She's the real deal not the usual woman standing around in frilly pink shit saying "look at me I'm a chick that rides". In fact she wears men's leathers and gives no indication that she is a woman at all out there on the track. She rides because she loves it not because she wants attention. She's also extremely quick and rides in the Advanced group.

Except for the long blond hair. Or does she tuck it away?

She wraps it up and tucks it inside the leathers. Another problem is that guys don't like being passed by a woman. They instantly become competitive and do stupid shit to try & get back around her so being low key is in her best interest period. Otherwise it's like painting a target on her back if they know she is a woman out there.

There's a fair bit of that going around, equally there's "look she's riding a big Harley or a 1L Sport bike", so what? I also don't get "women only" rides or track days? They are welcome to join us and do so, so why the need to have exclusive events/rides?

It goes both ways... Way too often as soon as a woman shows up on a sportbike message board 97% of the male members start humping her leg and talking shit that isn't always the best advice just trying to win her favor.

Having a "womens only" trackday is actually a pretty good thing. They get to ride the track in an atmosphere that is less intimidating and distracting which helps to insure that they get the most out of the event for themselves in regards to riding experience. My wife won't go to events like that though because in most cases the female instructors she has met or worked with are slower than she is so what are you going to learn from an instructor that can't keep pace with you!

I'm all for women in roadracing, but I used to cringe when I would see Jessica Zalusky on TV blatantly in the spotlight for 5 minutes prior to the AMA races only so she could be a backmarker and never thought of again as soon as the race started. There needs to be more basis for being chosen to ride in a professional motorcycle race, taking up valuable factory sponsorship other than just having tits...

Elena Myers on the other hand is the real deal and if any female is going to make it in professional roadracing it is going to be her! Hell she passed me at Infineon like I was having a picnic in Turn 3

Nice post, porrboy. My wife and I have been married for 22 years and we started riding together about 5 years ago. I had an ST1300 at the time, then she had her own bike for a couple years, and I had a 919. Then she decided that she liked being a passenger more than being the pilot. Now we are on an '09 Goldwing, and riding together is amazing therapy.

We are a lucky group. Having a partner that enjoys and shares our passion for riding is great.

I can go along with that.

At the Moto GP last year there was this 125cc class girl (racer) doing the rounds in the stands/grounds that was selling calenders of her in skimpy outfits and swimsuits. Didn't mind the calenders:001_smile:, but something about it still irritated me. On the one hand she wanted to enter which is, let be honest a male dominated sport and be one of the boys and treated as an equal, but on the other hand quite happy to use her feminine assets to get ahead/sponsors/money, etc.

Mine loves riding with me. The best days are when we get on the bike, without knowing where we are going. It makes for good memories!

None. If any were at home she'd know when I was riding. Duh!

btw she knows about two, one of which is the '84 GPz and she just assumed my dirtbike was the same age when in fact it's a 2001 KTM. I sold my 83 xr200 years before we were married but she never asked.

I have momentarily been home with a bike on three separate occasions (while having car serviced, etc) during our 8 year marriage. She thought it was the same bike each time but they were three different brands. The key is having all red bikes. Hahahaha.

For some reason I thought you had one she knew of at home and the other 10 was the secret. Any way still very funny!

Similar to a mate of mine that either buys a new bike and trades the other (KTM dirtbikes all look the same to some degree to the untrained eye) without her being any the wiser, or he'll ask for two receipts, one for the tax man and warrantee puposes and one for her.

I know a guy in the Southwest with a whole warehouse full of classic cars his wife knows nothing about and another guy near me with six Pontiac GTO's from the 60's tucked away in a real nice building set up with all the automotive ammenities - lift, air, tools, etc. He had enough acreage that he goes deer hunting there too. If either one of those poor bastards ever died of a sudden heart attack I'd love to see the expression on their old ladies' faces when they caught wind of the hideaways!

My old boss used to cheat on his wife. What an uncreative idiot! Such a waste of time and a motorcycle never talks.

inevitably, if it's not mentioned in his will and his friends didn't mention it to her, someone would come looking for their property tax money and trace the ownership.
If she had some reason to feel suspicious or think he was hiding something a private detective can find stuff like that.

one of my brothers knows what to do with my bikes (the whole lot is not worth that much anyway) in the event of my untimely demise. I can only imagine those car guys have some similar arrangement.

hose poor bastards my wife is helping me amass the collection. Currently in the yard sits her 2 wheel drive v8 s10 project right next to my zr2 s10 v8 project. There is a pair of v8's in the garage right now one just starting the tear down phase the other in pieces with the block at my old tech school.

Her's is the one starting tear down She's determined to tear it down and build it her self all I can do is teach her how not allowed to touch. She's gonna leave the port job and valve job to me though.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

The gear shop called us this morning and there system screwed up and told them they had a helmet they didn't have so we gotta go down and pick another one. She's not very happy she really did like the styling on the helmet she picked oh well we'll ask for a little more off than the sale price or we won't take it.

Actually she's not that concerned but when we are there when will be so we can get a little more coin off.
