Re: Looks like I won't be riding again!
On Sunday morning (Valentine's Day), my wife joined me as pillion as we rode from our home in Southern California to a cafe on the Long Beach Marina. It was a 20 minute ride there, a nice breakfast, and a 30 minute return.
What is so special about that? Well, nothing, except that it has been 18 years since my wife turned in her helmet. It was something she felt compelled to do, even though riding together was something she enjoyed. In the interim we have been raising our children. They are now growing into young adults, and so she is ready.
She had a great time, which was the important part, and she is looking forward to our next ride together. It will be baby steps, for sure. However, it was a fine start to be sharing one of my passions with My Love again. Sorry to rub it in for you snowbound folk, but it was a truly wonderful day, with the promise of more to come.
