I adore my motorcycle- but my husband said NO more riding

I used to ride all the time before he met me.. But he saw someone on post driving one like a jack ass, and he saw them wreck, and burned to death.. Yes, that is a HORRIBLE experience. But Im not him.

Anyways, after we had our daughter he said he hates the motorcycle because its so dangerous. Yes, I agree, and to make him feel at ease, I havent ridden for two years.

What do I do? I've tried convincing him.. didnt work. I love the ride, I ADORE it... Is it really gone forever?

Who out there loves the ride? :)

  • I used to and my mother forbid me, and said no too. But I was a grown woman then and you are now. If you can't please everyone then ya gotta please Y---s--f (yourself). Do what makes you feel good even if it makes him feel bad. If he loves you and he does, he will get over it.

  • In Europe so many women own vespas and motorcycles. GL to you. This is a situation where you want to make your husband happy but you need to make yourself happy too.

  • you know whenever i see a woman on a bike, all i can think of is she a dude. sorry, i know not all women look like that, but there are some that are really butchy and very much look like a man on there. but anyway, if your husband is against it because of safety maybe take a ride with him to show him that you are a good driver and see what happens, but you are a grown woman who really doesn't need his approval.

  • I understand that seeing someone killed would put a damper on the way he sees motorcycles, but honestly, name something that is 100% safe? There have been cases where kids are killed in car wrecks because of the carseat they were in, but it doesn't mean that I'm going to stop putting DD in a carseat...just saying.
