    Default Impossible wife

    Ever since my wife could ride she scares me. She enjoys speed dont get me wrong she doesnt do it when there is a lot of traffic. She wanted a bigger bike I told no more than a 600 for you missi? anyone else have the same problem

    Man, if she gets out of hand again you should ask her to give you a jolly good spanking

    Maybe - but I think you are overlooking the flocks of ganders worrying their asses off . . .

    Methinks that, on AMZ's planet, it must be very confusing that geese are boys and ganders are girls...

    Women in that respect are the same as men, you get a smaller bike your riding usually improves and so does your confidence and then get bored and want to up grade it is the natural order of things when it comes to biking. Man or women doesn't matter and yes do remember how many wives sit at home worried sick wondering if their husbands are going to come home in one piece I don't think its a bad thing that the shoe is on the other foot that way men can understand a little better how we feel. At the end of the day we get to ride and have fun together all is good
    Anything is ridable you just gotta know how

    Bigger bike means more training. Insist on it.

    OK.. My first official reply... an my 2cw...

    I weigh in at about 95+.. she weighs.. about.... nothing, but for conversation purposes let's say 45...

    So this is how I am explaining it to her... If I ride a 600, she can ride a 300 and it will keep up with me, as there is a 50 % weight difference between us and there is a 50% difference between the bikes, thus the Power to Weight ratio will be equal.....

    and yes.. she is blond...

    I am going to burn for this???

    Power to weight ratio will be equal. But wind resistance will batter the bike with less power/torque no matter how light you make it.
