A little while back, my beautiful wife took her first ride with me on Stallion! Before you dismiss this as a routine rite-of-passage, I have to assure you that in my case, this was definitely a special occasion!
You see, we have three kids, and my beautiful, risk-adverse wife doesn’t want them ending up as orphans should something happen to us both. She is a little leery of motorcycles, and has loving care and concern over my safety when riding. So, I have made it a point to try and not pressure her about getting on the motorcycle.
Well, I think my blabbing on about the freedom and peace I get when riding influenced her to try it for herself. Then again, maybe’s it just because she’s so awesome and loves me a lot? Either way…I’m a lucky fella!
Because I am all about wearing ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time), we needed to budget in buying her some good quality stuff. After a couple of months, and a couple of trips to the awesome Performance Cycle in Denver, she found some great deals on a helmet, pants, gloves, and jacket (couldn’t find the right boots)!
About a week or two after purchasing it all, she told me one morning, “We need to return some books that are due at the library…want to take the motorcycle?”
She didn’t have to ask me twice. 🙂
It was a great first MotoDate of (hopefully) many more to come!
