    Spouse with bike

    How many guys (or gals) have a spouse with his/her own bike, that rides with you?

    I met my wife when she was teaching her 1st MSF class over 30 years ago. She's usually on her GS, occasionally on her /5 toaster.

    My wife has two bikes, but only rides one presently. She's been a rider for over ten years now, won't even consider going back to being a passenger.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Sold it

    My wife sold her /6 when I bought the R1100RT. She prefers to snap pics and listen to her music or books and let me be the one to pay attention.

    Voni rides her R1100RS, K75, F800S (and TW200 in the desert).
    Just a bit over 1,000,000 BMW miles at the moment.

    My wife rides; has a F650GS twin and a F650GS single. She's the only person I ever ride with. Makes camping more fun.

    Funny you say that...I bought an 07 1200RT, and the same day we bought my wife an 07 1200 Sportser, both from our local BMW shop's used showroom. She always wanted a Harley; I always wanted an RT...we're both happy LOL. And we all know, if Mamma's happy...
