Default my wife hates bikes..............

My wife does not like bikes just not her thing.........My old bike she hated and would not get on. I just got the softail and she told me she liked the bike...what ? I was shocked... Truth is a few girls she works with there husdbands are in a harley only club and i think she felt my old 88 sporty was 2 junky looking and was 2 small for both of us that she felt embarrassed to be on the bike. When she saw how nice this 03 I got was she was real nice about it..shocking.... I did get her on the softail for a small 4 mile ride before winter but she really only went for me............. So heres what im asking I would love for her to ride with me one day. anyone out there ever have a wife that hated riding and years later out of no where now love to ride?????

I dated a girl like that years ago. She loved me, but wasn't into my motorcycle. I took her for a couple of rides, but didn't push it on her. I never minded riding by myself anyway.

My wife loves to ride but she didnt want me to buy a bike... She has no idea about the money I spend on it... She would really hate it if she knew...

Mine hates them. Wouldnt even come out and look at it when We brought it home. And mine was brand new off the showroom floor. Still has no interest.

I think you should be a good husband, and just give me your bike so you two can go parkin on the moonlit beach more often in the cage...

Mine didn't really care for bikes. Wasn't interested in getting one. But she was entertaining the idea of an automatic scooter so she could ride along with me some times. We got her a burgman and during the first attempt to show her how to work the throttle and brake, she had a spill that put her out of commission for 6 weeks. She's ok and back to work now, just needs to take it easy for a while longer. She's not sure she wants to attempt it again, and I'm not going to force her. Maybe she will, maybe she won't. If she don't I may be sellin the burgman or tradin it for a harley or parts... and maybe

DON'T USE THE CLUB ON HER!!! (even if it's a little one, there are spousal abuse laws now)...

(I know, you meant the mc club, but funny still, and be glad I didn't go the other way with it!)
