No, I did not take her, but she is adamant about me not getting the bike. All I hear is, it is dangerous and people die on them. I am thinking to myself, people die all the time. Most die just enjoying life and trying to be safe, etc.Have you taken her to a dealership to let her see the bikes in person? Maybe that will help.
I am an EMT I have seen lots of death. Yes on motorcycles, but 90% of those were on crotch rockets going 130 mph on a busy interstate with no gear. The others were people riding safely some with proper gear some without. That said I love bikes........I know other EMTs and Medics that love bikes. Life is to short to worry on what will and won't kill you. I have seen people die from an unknown heart condition will taking a dump on the toilet. If she is going to worry that much about the bike killing you tell her you aren't going to drive a car or fly anywhere because that might kill you. Yes bikes are dangerous. Yes you can die on them, but you can die doing pretty much anything these days. We don't have long on this earth so why not enjoy it. Being a Christian I believe there is an afterlife for me to enjoy. That said I will still enjoy my life and live it to the fullest. Again I guess I am a lucky guy, but my wife not only supports me getting another bike, but wants one for herself. She has the same outlook on life as I do. I guess that's why she was my friend for 4 years, dated was engaged for 2 years and has stuck with me in marriage almost 2 years despite how crazy I drive her.No, I did not take her, but she is adamant about me not getting the bike. All I hear is, it is dangerous and people die on them. I am thinking to myself, people die all the time. Most die just enjoying life and trying to be safe, etc.
My wife is giving me hell because I want to get a motorcycle. I plan on getting the 300 this month, maybe this week, but my wife is not feeling that. Is/has anyone experienced this and what was the outcome.
I'm in the same boat right now. My mom has a passion for hating bikes because her dad wrecked on one back in Ukraine when she was a little girl. It's not helped by the fact that my cousin spun a rear tire on a turn a few years ago and that my sister-in-laws younger brother lost the use of his arm for a few years after doing a highspeed pass (120+) and someone turning left into him.i had the same deal but with my mom, i just went and bought it and brought it home , i really didnt care what she said really, is better to ask for forgiveness than for permission
