GF says shes gonna leave me if I get a new bike.

Had my 750 when i met her several years ago. She didnt have a problem with it then. Upgraded to k5 1k, most fun bike I have ever ridden. Feb 06 I was T-Boned by a chevy malibu, had all my gear on, Bike destroyed, minor injuries (swelling of my knee to twice its normal size, bruised but no broken bones). One of the saddest days I can remember. Almost cried when I saw my bike at the tow yard. I think the call I made from inside the ambulance to her was the saddest one shes had. I will soon be able to afford a new bike again. I havent been the same without one. She sees me surfing on here and lookin at pics. Told her that she cant change my mind, I love her to death, but nothing compares to the freedom of riding. I told her I'm going to get one, with or without her, so the threat is useless. Today she almost had me convinced to get a stand up jet ski (another toy I will aquire soon) instead, thanks to this site, that didnt last long.

I'm afraid she might get the best of me.....

Re: GF says shes gonna leave me if I get a new bike.

First I'd ask her what she's affraid of? Fear manifests itself in anger. Sounds like everytime she thinks of you on a bike she remembers "That Call" & doesn't want to go through that again. I kinda went throught the same thing back in October. I totaled my old bike 3 weeks after my son was born. I just bought a K7 1K,she wasn't that happy, however she understands what riding means to me & it's a lot cheaper than a therapist.
Good luck man.

Re: GF says shes gonna leave me if I get a new bike.

My wife wigged out when I came home with my new 600 a week ago! I mean ape shit! So I just reminded here that I did not want a 35,000 dollar pool she did! I also reminded her that I was not the one that wanted a new hummer either! So I could have this and she could leave if she did not like it.

Having a bike is who you are, without one you will not be the same person. At some point you will resent her for changing who you are

It's just a threat. She won't do it. Just buy the bike.

Her concern shouldn't bother you: the fact that she threatened you with an ultimatum, however, should. Like SPL said, happy trails.

Get the new bike. Thats ultimate happiness mate. How often does a bike nag at you or talk back and give you shit?

Re: GF says shes gonna leave me if I get a new bike.

Man that sucks, Id buy the bike anyway. My g/f started yelling at me today because i had a friend call wanting to buy mine, and im considering it. Figured if i can sell it for more than its worth, i can make some profit, buy another, and be happier than before.

Sit her down and talk to her about it. The girl I currently date absolutely hates bikes more then anything else, but she will not ask me to stop riding as she knows how great I feel going out.

Re: GF says shes gonna leave me if I get a new bike.

Thanks for the support! Lots of good points, and its exactly how I feel. The main reason for her worry is the roads in FL are much more dangerous than the roads in CT, where we moved from. I was only down here for a month before I was T-Boned. Experiencing how dangerous it is first hand, is all I need to wear my gear every time I hop on a bike. No need to worry there. I have to ride with the mentality that everyone is out to kill me. Although the nights are the best time to ride down here.

And you guys are right, if she does go bye bye, at least I'll have a brand new bike!
