Default Significant Others - riders or non-riders?

I must confess I was pulled into sportbikes ENTIRELY by my husband. I had never spent any time around them or anyone who did, so I thought they were just crazy people who couldn't afford Harley's. LOL and then Will brought his 1st bike home and cranked it up. I fell in love! I guess really what I'm wondering here is do lots of people ride with their SO's???

I can't even get my wife on the back of mine. She says she is too heavy. Yes she is a little overweight, but I want her to enjoy the same things I do. I wanna get her a bike of her own someday, but I got to get her comfortable on one. It would be nice to take a long ride on the twisties with her. She stays home with the kids and I feel guilty sometimes.

I'd be more worried that ya told the the "world" that Ur wifes a little over weight, than posting in the wrong thread!!! dosn't matter if she/we R,5 or 500lbs over weight, the minute someone mentions my weight I gain 5 pounds (just trying to give ya some girlly insight there)

But seriously ya can't make her want to ride, its a bummer, but U shouln't feel guilty... as long as she has a chance to get out and do her thing... and hopefully there's still timefor the 2 of U!!!

Well its a damn good thing that my wife doesn't read these posts and thats the ONLY reason I decided to quote her. Lol.
I wish she had her own thing though. She really doesn't have a "hobby" I have like four...lol. Oh well someday I will get her on the back. Other than that I envy all those who have others to ride with.

or scrapbooking! LOL hahahha - later today I'm getting some of my first lessons on my husband's bike. It's a beautiful day here in Austin and I'm about to take full advantage of it!


As for the wife picking up a hobby, you might suggest a few things but she will find it on her own.Keep asking her to go for a ride with you though - if nothing else it lets her know that you want to spend time with her!

I ride with my husband on the back of his or on my own we both have bikes but I'm just learning to ride so I want him with me if I'm out. I'm very under weight by about 20-25 pounds so when I'm on my husbands bike he has to make sure I'm still there sometimes and I haven't blown off somewhere down the road because I don't hang on to him I hold on to the bar at the back it's more comfortable. I know I drive to slow for my husbands bike but he has to be patient with me while I learn my bike does good on slow speeds his doesn't. I have a CBR 125 and he has a GS500 so when I'm on the road he rides behind me to be my blocker while I learn. He is such a nice husband.

I fell in love with riding because of my husband. He took me for a few rides and then I decided I wanted my own. I hate being the passenger now.
