Welcome back to the two wheel madness!

After that little scream down the street, I can see the big curd eating grin on your face all the way from here!

Nice to see in the anthropomorphising of the bike that your are preserving the sterotype that "he" is the opposite gender to you, the rider.
(All my cars have been referred to as being of the female gender, even if they never had a name. ie, going for a ride in the old girl. Or the car needs gas; I`ll take her down and fill her up now. lol )

Seriously, what is it with spouses making people give up motorcycles??

If they don't like that, they shouldn't have married that person in the first place.
