Exclamation Wish your wife was more into bike stuff?

If your wife tolerates your motorcycle "habit" but really isn't that into it herself, I have a suggestion: attend CCR!

CCR is a great experience (I've been to the last five in a row!), with lots of cool farkles made specifically for your bike. You'll learn things, make new friends, get to ride some great roads, and more. But perhaps MOST important, your WIFE (or significant other) will have a great time!

CCR is the only motorcycle event I know of that is PRIMARILY a two-up event, and your spouse/s.o. will have a great time, even if she/he doesn't want to do much riding with you while there. My wife has no interest in other bike-related rallies/functions, but she LOVES CCR! It is held in classier locations, and there are lots of other women with whom she can associate. We have really made some friends at CCRs, and that is probably the best thing I've gotten from attending! Even if her schedule (or riding endurance level) doesn't allow her to ride the whole way with me, we now work out ways for her to attend (she has flown, or flown one way and ridden the other). The point is that she WANTS to attend CCR with me!

So if you wish your spouse/s.o. was more interested in bike stuff, bring her to CCR and next year, she'll be saying to you, "Hey, can we go to that Curve Cowboy thing again?!" And before you know it, your fantasy may come true: your stay-at-home sweetheart just may become a biker babe after all! OK, well it might not go THAT far, but she'll definitely want to do at least ONE bike-related thing a year with you!

Here are a few photos of past CCRs. Notice how many couples there are, and how much fun they're having!? Go to http://curvecowboyreunion.com/ and start making your plans...before it's too late!

OK Y'all I starting to think I need to get down there.
Those that know me KNOW Mona loves to ride but I just started a new venture business-wise and wasn't sure I could pull off the time....but whats money as long as your not giving it to the government.
I'm going to start to pave the way!!!
