You're smarter than I was. I grew up riding motorcycles from the time I was 5 (now 55) and motorcycles had always been a huge part of my life. I fell in love with a gal who didn't have any experience with bikes because her Dad was an oral surgeon and "had repaired several jaws broken by idiots crashing those goddam things". Well, that's why I wear a full-face helmet and work on skills and ride safely, ya know? Anyway, we got married and within a couple years the pressure was REALLY on to get rid of my bikes. I was in grad school, we had a new baby boy, and the money was tight so I relented and got rid of my two motorcycles. VICTORY!!!! for her and Daddy, a very sad day for me. As stated, the control didn't end there but crept into everything else I loved doing and had enjoyed since long before I met her. Fast forward a bunch of years and I had finally had my fill of this self-centered, controlling, unhappy woman and divorced her after 18 tough years of marriage. We have two beautiful children together, and that is the one positive thing about the relationship, but it came at a very high price. The first thing I did when the divorce was final was buy two dual sport bikes and start teaching my kids to ride ; my son and I did a 3 week tour of the Canadian Rockies together that is still one of the most enjoyable things we've ever done together. I recently purchased my 45th motorcycle (WR250R ) and there will be more. I haven't spoken to that wench in about 7 years and don't need to ever again.

Listen up, Sonny, run while you can! There are plenty of women out there that will support you in your dreams, don't settle for one who steals them from you. When I first met my new wife she'd never ridden a bike before, so I took her on a nice easy ride on my BMW GS up into the mountains, back on paved roads, had a picnic lunch in the top case, etc. When we got back to my house I asked how did you like the ride? Her response was, "Can we ride this thing to Alaska?" I knew she was a keeper then... She loves riding and fully supports my habit.

One day Bob was cleaning and adjusting his motorcycle.
When he was finished, his wife said, "You know I worry about you when you go out on that. Maybe it's time you thought about giving up motorcycling."
Bob's face immediately twisted into something she'd never seen before.
"What's wrong?", she said.
Bob replied, "For a minute there, you sounded just like my ex-wife!"
"You never told me you were married before!", she said.
Bob countered, "I wasn't."

I got lucky on the first one, she rode, I didn't. But she convinced me to change, her control over me wasn't so bad.





It's been a great 36 years so far.
And it was nice to have a wife that supported our son's MX racing at 4 years old and a sport bike at 16.

Jep, Doug you doing well.

Some of my girlfriends never ride on a motorbike before. But sooner or later they like it.

So the present one. She didn't want a man with a beard. She never think about riding a motorbike. Way to dangerous


Today I didn't have to ask, bike or bike? She love it.

Did you know this hatred existed and brought the bike home anyway? Did you talk with her about it first and did it anyway? If so you may have already made up your mind before coming on here. Definately don't take the plunge if major desires will have. To be sacrificed.
