My wife has no interest in riding a motorcycle.

Although she did say she sort of likes the idea of a little scooter..

Cheerio,

Roy

My wife would rather ride a Vespa by herself than ride pillion with me but has no interests in motorcycles.

Hello @Chico ,

Very 'very' sorry to hear this, what a heartbreak.

I recall the day as a teenager when I went to my mom to ask if I could get a bike knowing my oldest brother had died on his. To her credit she said yes but I remembered 'her' loss every time I rode. Even though I got teased by my 'tough' biker mates, I would always telephone her to let her know I wasn't coming home (parties and the like) just so she wouldn't worry.

My thoughts to yourself for your loss and please pass them on to your good lady.

Wow!
Yeah, sorry to hear Chico.

My wife and daughter used to both ride pillion with my past and other bike.
Neither have in about 4 or so years. Even though my wife has her motorcycle license sheís just been spooked lately and doesnít want anything to do with them.
My daughter has just been too busy or hardly ever home to ride with me. She does, however, want me to teach her to ride and eventually get herself a small cc bike.
Weíll see.

I'm very sorry Chico about your son. Every time the wife rides I think about what could happen.

Thank you everyone for your thoughtful words. After that cataclysmic event I had to go through a lot of soul searching before I took my first ride. My family and friends were aghast when I decided to climb back on a motorcycle. I find myself riding much more conservatively since I know what can happen and how it affects those left behind.
Roy, I understand how your mother must have felt as well as how you must feel. My son has a sister, my daughter, and it's been hard on her having lost her younger brother she knew since he was born.
