I had to promise to ATGATT and take out a $500,000 life insurance policy (double indemnity of course)   ???

It actually is. I’ve had a couple of wives and more than a few girlfriends. Anytime I’m in a relationship that looks promising, I make it clear I’m a motorcyclist and that will never change. Better to establish the parameters of a relationship early.

Good advice, talk and clarify before getting engaged. My wife rides and she even has more scoots than I do. I think I should go bike shopping.  :bigsmile:

I thought it was, that was why I posted it-I came to some of those conclusions the long hard way, so if it can save someone a decade or so, I figured I'd share.

I am fortunate that I met Dan because of motorcycles, but I twice now he has given me a scare when he mentioned giving up riding. Usually these comments are short-lived, but it is amazing how much it scares me when he says it. I mean, sure, we have a great time together off the bikes as well, but as you guys know, motorcycling can't be replaced. Plus, it is a great way to explore the continent :burnout:

I think it comes down to passion. If one person in a relationship is passionate about something the other needs to be as well, otherwise they don't understand each other. My wife's passion is horses, barrel racing to be exact, and mine is motorcycles. The fact that each of us is passionate about something means we understand each other.  Sure, she like to ride with me occasionally but the best part is she understands perfectly when I say I'm going dirt biking for the day.

After a 25+ year marriage went bust (not because of motorcycles; we met because of bikes) at this point in my life I think I'd just as soon get a dog.

33 years with Mrs. Wedge, and she has ridden dirt bikes in WV, ridden pillion with me, even did a 3 day trip. She says its just 'not her thing'. She honestly tried it, and I am certainly not going to force it. She understands how I love it, and as long as she isn't asking me to stop, I'm okay with it. It's not for everyone but it's for me.

... if you have a wife and girlfriend, you are on your own.
I was gonna say that if you have a wife and girlfriend, you probably aren't on your own much.
But, then I thought...
That's actually a variation of Schrodinger's cat:
If Schrodinger had a wife and a girlfriend, every time he's not with one of them, he doesn't know if they've found out about each other, until he's with one of them again...

Today, my wife started a new job at the local Honda/KTM dealership. Tomorrow is our anniversary.

I would like to see it the first time she pulls up on her Ninja.

Pretty sorry state of affairs when a youtube video has to teach guys how to actually listen to women.

Best thing to do with good advice is to give it to someone who needs it.

I kinda liked this one better
