Welcome back to the two wheel madness! :smiley_th

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

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.

I should have broken up years age, but with the kids it was not that easy. My 15 year old son has Aspergers and my girl is 11. Now that they are older its still not easy being a single mom but its do able.

Ottergirl, did you listen to the recordings / videos we posted for you? Did they help at all?

It starts with the stories about motorcycle wrecks and finishes up with the realization of having to go to the morgue to identify - not a body - identify body *parts*. They probably got married before most of the stories.:hitanykey

Yes, the sounds helped a lot. Thank you. I had Blackberry issues and cound not post there for abit. My bike has a deeper sound but close to everyone elses.

My ex claimed he "liked" that I rode, but would make my life a living hell when ever I wanted to ride.

I don't really think that's it. Everyone "knows" motorcycles are soooo dangerous since they're like 5 years old and they first point at one and say "cool!", then the parent goes berserk saying how they're too dangerous and never get near one lol.

Also, I've seen that it happens with cars and other hobbies too! I've seen a whole lot of ads for Mustangs and other cars saying that their wife won't let them keep it lol.

I've also heard people say their spouse won't let them continue some hobby they've had for years before they met.

I think basically, people just feel some kind of need to change the person they're with. No idea why, I think it's so stupid. If you want something else, go find something else!

But anyway!

Great that you're riding again Ottergirl!! And it's super cool that Knifemaker actually made a joke and not only were you not insulted by it, you actually liked it!! lol Awesome!
