My wife recently decided to get a motorcyle licence. She did not tell me about it just did it. When I found out about it I told her I did not want her to ride or have a motorcycle because of all the people I knew who were hurt or killed on them.
So without telling me she bought a Harley Davidson and told everyone else but me. I found out from my son. I talked to her asked her to get rid of it before it was to late. I offered to buy her a convertible car or take her on a trip to Hawaii, she said no.
I am not able to drive one and do not want to. Now I dred sunny days & weekends when I know she might be riding. There are so many poeple in cars talking on cell phones not watching for motorcycles.
She rides with her girl friend and relatives. Is this a fad that she will get tired of? How can I convince her the ride is not worth the risk of injury or death? she is 48 yrs, old enough to know better.
Am I the only husband to have this problem? Should I get life insurance on her? What about reverse psychology? Take an interest in cycles maybe she might get bored.
Signed worried, lonesome and potential widower.
