I started riding in May 2004 at age 43. After about a year of thinking about it seriously, I finally convinced my wife to let me buy a new 2004 1150GS in May of '04. After a few weeks she agreed to ride on the back with me. 1500 miles later she (age 40) wanted her own bike. I bought her a new '03 F650GS in July '04. Although we were both avid bicycle riders and have logged over 5000 miles a year on our road bicycles, she had never ridden a motorcycle before. I tought her to ride a motorcycle on that F650 in an elementary school parking lot. She took the MSF course as I did earlier. In the next twelve month we logged 12K on our bikes. This summer we sold her F650 and bought her a K1200RS. Since we both started about 18 months ago we have ridden about 26K miles. It is a blast, we have traveled to areas in the southwest we have never been before and we have both lived here for over 25 years.
