Re: Spousal NON-support

I'm just curious how many of you out there are like me, who have an S.O. who is less than supportive of your biking hobby. I know there are alot of supportive spouses (it's been discussed a time or two in old threads), but how about hearing from other sacks like me with NON-supportive wives?

I'm thinking about organizing a support group.

PS - For the record, a great girl, just not thrilled to death with my passion for fast bikes. Any bikes for that matter.

Re: Spousal NON-support

It's not your bike she doesn't like, it's that your a cop. Or the fact that you make comments about men.

My wife didn't like riding it, but she didn't mind me having it/riding it.

pick up a bad habit - like prostitutes, then she will love your biking preferences

Re: Spousal NON-support

Is she less supportive 'after' you took the training wheels off? j/k

For '05 I promised myself I would practice tolerance...so if people would quit being so STUPID I'll be more tolerant.

Re: Spousal NON-support

Another case of the woman not letting the man be himself and live his life to the fullest. Exactly why I am NOT married.

Re: Spousal NON-support

My SO could really give a sh#t less. I guess she realizes that I've had bikes for 33 years before we met (7 years ago) so she doesn't give me any crap at all, and fortunately doesn't have any desire to ride pillion. That's good for me 'cause I hate riding 2-up. Hmm, she [/I]does[I] always tell me to ride safely when I take off, so I guess that's support.

Re: Spousal NON-support

No no, you gotta understand bro. It's simply a good natured public safety jab from the cop to the fireman.

Call him a 'basement saver' and see what he says.

Re: Spousal NON-support

I get accused daily of spending all my time riding, reading about riding, or posting about riding. As a matter of fact, I'm posting about riding right now. She likes motorcycles, but her back keeps her from riding with me. I just received clearance from her for a new blade after my son takes his back from me. Wish me luck on finding a new ride.

Re: Spousal NON-support

Yeah im in that group. Though the S.O.'s arent the chain-bearing variety though (yet), well on some level - but mine are only the plastic chain like when you are waiting in line for santa, nothing like that gold/diamond stuff.

I deal with it in a few different ways. One gf said I spent too much time with my hobby, and I should consider another one - so I did. I added bar-hopping to my agenda and it filled the night formerly referred to as 'ours' nicely.

It actually helped me to find the next one, who always was supportive of my streetbiking. But for the wrong reasons, she wanted to go to the beach and ####. Well, im not the 'beach type' shall we say (I think of it as a public courtesy thing ) and my prized 929 would have had to been out of my sight for almost the entire time there anyways, so whats the point. That got old quick, but luckily that bar gig has a return policy on anyone you find, whew - lucked out there.

The gf I now have (the one that Conq. is always asking about ) didn't start out a fan of biking - but I applied the Bubba logic, and things haven't been better since, thanks Bubba!



*note: the chick in story #2 didnt actually go to the beach and ####, should have said 'stuff' maybe instead.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
