when will she learn?

everyone, please wear your gear! or at least full length jeans.
the wife rode her bike to work today (wearing capri jeans) and when she got there and went to park the bike she put the side kickstand down and as she leaned the bike to the left the back of her right leg touched the exhaust pipe and now she has a new tattoo!
i have told her to always wear full length jeans. also she knows how i feel about not wearing gear. every time we are out driving around and i see some body riding with shorts or capri pants, i say "yeah, your cool! just wait until you get your new tattoo on your leg, then maybe you'll learn!
so my wife comes home and knowing what i'm going to say to her, shows me her new tattoo. i ask "how did that happen did you wear jeans?" she says "yeah, capri jeans". when i ask "why not full length jeans?" she tells me "it's too hot"! i answer with "yeah, so are the pipes!"
so everyone, please wear your gear! or at least full length jeans.

The answer to your question...

Being happly married for 31 years, and the fact that she is off visiting her mother in England right now, the answer is ...Probably Never.

But hang in there, good ones are hard to find..

yeah, i know. as for the good ones?....i got mine and i plan on keeping her!
married for 31 years? (happly to boot!) good for you! so many people i know (many of them friends) only make to around half that many years, then get divorced! which scares the heck out of me, because that's how long we've been married. (not always happly, but, we got through it, and we are now.)

also, no she has no other tat's. this is her first one. (and i hope her last!)

Yeah, let's hope so.
I've scorched my jeans on the pipes (and my hand once, but that was during maintenance ) but haven't gotten my legs heat sealed by them and hope not to.
Ya know, Ruger, I think for her not heeding your advice, she owes you a night out now!! LOL

I'll tell you what makes me cringe. Seeing someone riding in shorts, tank-top and flip-flops. Forget the hot pipes, one cager not paying attention and you get to walk around looking like a refugee from Burger King for the rest of your life, if you're that lucky.
