So true man. I worry, that would be one ****** up thing to see your wife get hit be a semi,,.Just make sure she has the skills to help her be safe..Marco Polo said:Ruckus said:How did all of you guys talk your wifes into riding? I would LOVE my wife to ride! How fun would that be!
I don't think I really talked her into it so much as just offered it up as an idea of something we could do together. For me since I was just starting I didn't really view 2 up as an option but I outgrew the V-Star in no time (couple ofmonths)so phase 2 was to get my next bike and get her riding which she was pretty gung-ho for on her own already.
As far as it being really fun.... as Allsmiles mentioned it has it's ups and downs. When we ride together I'm ussually MUCH more aggresive of a rider and always trying to go MUCH faster then her so it gets to a point sometimes where I'm spending so much time checking my mirrors and worrying about her that it becomes unsafe even. It's fun to have that hobby in common but I ussually have a more relaxing and fun ride when I'm on my own then with her unfortunately. We've never done any longer rides or destination type trips together though but I think that might be cool.
Like Scott said, your wife has to want to ride for her own enjoyment, not for yours. Everyone has different preferances and just likehis wife I imagine if you ride long enough and she knows you wouldn't mind her riding with you she'll probably eventually want to try it also I would think.
