I was riding long before I met my wife. Her father is a retired airline pilot, and his hobby is building airplanes, so my wife is used to the idea of men doing dangerous, expensive things to relax. Even better, my wife loves motorcycles and wants one of her own, so when I came home after riding a friend’s bike July 4th and said “I need a motorcycle,” my wife did not skip a beat. Her response was “Go for it.”
I wish I had an answer for you. The big questions are: Which is more important, riding or your wife? Which would you regret more in 40 years, staying with your wife or not riding a motorcycle? Do you want to sit in your rocking chair regretting not going for the gusto while holding this woman’s hand and looking back on life with her?
Tough choice. The big question is, do you love your wife enough to give up your dream of motorcycling?
