My wife likes them. Since meeting me she has gotten to ride mopeds, scooters, a ct90, and a cub. I bought her a QT50 I need to get going for her. She wants to paint it purple and make it her own.
She humors me when it comes to wrenching, just like I humor her when it comes to her piano and singing and music. She does a better job of it though. I've kind of given up on showing her how things work and she doesn't try to teach me music anymore.
However she does like riding mopeds, and we've had some nice road trips going to pick up bikes, and I do enjoy listening to symphonies, so it all works out.
Even if she hated mopeds I don't think it would matter, there is more to a person than their hobbies.
Also, as far as the financial aspect I've managed to flip some bikes when we needed cash and now that money isn't as important she kind of leaves me to it. I don't really spend much on the hobby anyway. My goal is to have 2 or 3 stockish runners and leave it at that.
And the garage is in much better shape now that I've gotten back into bikes and I've left enough room to pull the cars in and repair them when needed, so that is a plus.
Oh and for awhile she was into chickens and we shared the garage while she was raising her chicks, hence this funny picture.
Oh and I try to not work on bikes in the kitchen or living room anymore, that's more of a bachelor thing. But I can't say that I haven't done it, She seemed cool with it, and even helped put the cylinder on while I was compressing the rings with my fingers, but I don't want to push it.
Also I have kind of drawn the line at rallys and gangs and such. I don't think she would like the wildness at all or understand the need to drive so far just to meet up. I'll continue with fixing up her bike and maybe some more regular neighborhood riding and then who knows, but probably not. (edited)
