    I’ve been riding bikes for better than 30+ years and wife of just as many has never shown interest and any of the bikes I’ve own then I caught her in the act today

    Good for her, get her trained and out riding
    My mrs likes pillion but won’t ride, mind you that’s a good thing, if you have been out in a car with her, you would understand why

    I had been riding for about 25 years and my wife finally got up the courage and got her own bike.

    I in 1983 I bought my first V4, my wife didn’t be left out so she went out and got a a VT500 which was the only bike she get her feet on the ground! We ended up touring Florida in 84 starting in Tampa At her sisters, over to Cape Canaveral, down to Key West, back up to Tampa through Naples. Later in 84 I snuck her bike on a trailer of materials for the 84 Olympics, my company had already flown my bike to LA where I was project manager for UCLA’s support village. During the games we took off and went North up the coast, spent a night sleeping under our bikes at Laguna Seca. Great times with my best friend.

    I think it fits her well! You may want to start looking for a new bike for yourself.

    I cannot get my wife to go on the back of the bike, she has no interest but LOVES watching bike racing and is pretty knowledgable about it but just not interested in going on the bike, I tell to just try it once to see but no chance of it

    Was watching Ford vs Ferrari yesterday on cable and reminded the wife of the time she rode two up with me from UCLA to Willow Springs to watch some racing almost 30 years ago now. Now that we're married and have kids, she won't ride with me anymore... ??

    That sounds awfully familiar Samuel, same here. The only exception was when we bought a Vespa to blat around the neighbourhood, my wife quite likes our little outings on that but refuses to get on anything bigger.
