    My Special Woman

    "I know I am special... that's because I'm living in Texas"

    I once told my wife who was born in Amarillo that she was "So special she could be a Gold Medalist in the Special Olympics" I had a bruise on my shoulder from the punch she threw. Ya gotta be careful with those women from Texas. :-)

    Perhaps looking for "girls" is the issue...SheRides


    There is the oft recommended advice about having a short "requirements list" in the selection of a partner. In my twenties, I had a friend who wouldn't date a girl who smoked. Well I did, and she quit shortly after we started going out. This girl and I are still married, 35 years later.



    P.S. Gail: this was taken for us by a Harley guy, on the Beartooth Pass.

    If you want to meet girls; be the opposite of an engineer.

    If you want to meet girls and you're in a band; be the opposite of a drummer.

    I think girls are born with some subconscious repulsive gene that is sensitive to these two traits.

    My Better Half

    My better half made me aware of this discussion topic last night...she reads the woman's section somewhat frequently and ran across this discussion of amusement. I have to say, having a spouse that also rides is something I didn't expect when we first met...via Yahoo of all places...yes, we are an online couple

    When I was posting around the various date sites a few years back, I had a side note of my interest in motorcycles. I have been riding since 1986 and I didn't want to end up with a significant other that was going to squash my riding interest. That didn't mean the other had to ride, just let me have my next mid-life crisis bike at age 40

    I think on our second date, I happen to pull out one of my old hd shirts in my laundry I was putting away. Lori suddenly inquired...."you have a harley?" I said yes, a few years ago, but I sold it due to a job change. I was planning on getting another one, probably the Road King in another year. Her blunt comment was "I don't like Motorcyles....and I especially hate harley's My thoughts was that this relationship is about over.

    For the next few months, I kept my mouth shut on motorcycles until one weekend in Beaver's Bend Oklahoma, we were on a camping trip and while driving around the area, I happen to comment that this would be a cool place to do some bike riding. She states "mountain bikes?" I said, no, a motorcycle. For whatever reason, this seemed to catch her interest of riding out of the way of interestates and cities and somewhere nice where the traffic is light.

    The following week, she asked me what kind of bike would you ride in Beavers Bend? I stated, probably if we are also camping with the RV, something relatively light, but sort of a dual sport that could ride on a highway, but also some dirt roads if necessary and be light enough to get into the pick-up bed. At the time, I had my eye on the Triumph Tiger for this application.

    She then asked where one of those are? At the time, we lived in the Dallas area and there was a Triumph(BMW) dealer. She taught at a school nearby, so after work, I met her there to look at a Tiger. She wasn't thrilled with it, too tall and ugly. She then points across the hallway to the other side of the dealership. "What's wrong with those bikes?""Why don't you like those?" She was pointing across the way at the BMW side of the dealership. I bluntly stated "I can't afford THOSE bikes!". I really didn't know much about the BMW bikes at the time, but starting researching. I had one former coworker who had an RT I thought was nice, but that was about it.

    I'll end this with a long story short: I will have to credit my wife Lori for directing me to the BMW. We got married in 2007 and a month later, had our first BMW...a CS, which fit the requirement of fitting in the Pick-Up bed with the RV. Later the RT would come along and we did our first out of state trips on that model. After the 4000 mile in two week trip to the Wisconsin Rally, my wife decided that she had had enough riding two-up and wanted her own license and bike. The CS became her first bike since we already had it. Since then, this has been one crazy marriage to Lori and the BMW's !

    Just say 'Howdy'

    A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a day ride with BMWGSRIDER. Gotta say that it was a real pleasure - darned good company, rides with her head, super attitude and a good ol' country gal appetite. We even found some good scenery and roads in the Texas panhandle.

    So maybe all you should do is just get out and ride.

    Now, if I was just 40 years younger and a foot shorter..............

    Seriously, after six decades spent running all around the planet one of the few things this hard headed old geezer learned is to NOT put your energy into actively looking for somebody, but relax and enjoy the folks around you.

    Not married, no kids. 35 years or so left on this mud ball if everything goes OK. Worked in the MC industry for the last 25 years. (that seems really cool, but 98.9% of the people in the industry are guys)

    The good thing is no one complains when I park a motorcycle in the living room or decide to take a roadtrip on a whim. The bad thing is the holidays, it gets more than a little lonely. I think I could probably die in my sleep and no one would notice for a week or two.
    'Where is the chrome ?'

    Hehehe ...

    You know, not all all of us women would say that ...


    Regards,

    40 years younger? Could that mean a female in my age range around here? I'm not sure what to do with myself.

    It sounds like you're a bit insecure about your man(motorcycle)hood Have you tried asking one of the women making faces, why they make that face? Most folks respond with doubt to things they aren't familiar with. They just need some encouragement/education to see the 'light.'

    What opportunities you're missing by assuming you're being frowned on!
