My wife knows I wouldn't be ME if I wasn't riding.
She has her motorcycle license but prefers to be on my bike so she doesn't have to worry about riding her own. She's pretty unflappable as sporty as I want to go... so...
For me personally, I find it's difficult to live without motorcycles or women.
Wifey and I have done lots of Patriot Guard rides and welcome home escorts with Patriot Guard. Once we were doing one in Illinois... and a lot of the others were saying they refuse to ride in MO (my state) because of helmet laws. In eerie coincidence, the honoree was killed while riding his sportbike, after he came home from Iraq, hit a bicyclist and died when he crashed in a minor tumble wearing no helmet. The bicyclist had a bicycle helmet on and walked away, while the soldier was killed with a head injury. My wife and I just looked each other wondering about the logic. Of course we were all there to honor the soldier, not debate helmet laws... but when we left, we strapped our chinstraps tight.
