my wife ROCKS!

this week my wife just did her first work on her new (to her) vulcan 500. her bike was in very bad need of a new front tire. so the wife pulled and replaced the front tire all by herself! well, ok, I did help her a little. I didn't do much, just broke the nuts loose and told her what to do next. she did the rest of the work all by herself. she rocks! pretty soon we will be telling me how to fix my vn750! lol

Good going Ms. Ruger! I`ve got 4 daughters, all grown up now. When they passed their driving test and got a drivers licence, they only got to take the car solo after they showed me they could change a flat tire by themself. You have moved the bar up a notch or two by mounting a new mc tire by yourself. I hope you enjoy your new ride.

She should get an account. 500, 750, it's just 250 cc's. A lot of what we talk about here would apply to her and give her encouragement to do even more for herself. I say sign her up!
