My wife thinks I'am obsessed with dirt bikes

The "sitting in my garage & staring at my bike for an hour or so".......... I do that,but I look around to make sure no one is watching me.If my wife should happen to come into the garage and ask "watcha doing honey?" I always respond with the universal spousal reply, "nuthin"

i have dirt bike magazines dating back to 1972.
i told my wife before we got married, that bikes were a huge part of my life that i wasnt going to give up. she understands, theres alot worse things i could be doing.
yes.. i'm addicted, and theres no way in hell i ever want to be cured.

I was told not to ride again due to back injuries. I listened for about 10 years, then decided..."screw it"
Perhaps someday I will have to stare at the bike from a wheelchair, but it beats not riding.

I've got 3 sons, ages 7 months, 3 and 5 1/2 and I bought a 50cc for the oldest when he was 8 months old and I'd ride around the yard with him. She thought I was crazy but went along with it anyway.
She also gives me crap about making up excuses for going to the store just to ride one of my bikes. Anything just to start them up and motor around. I even get the mail on my son's XR50, why walk if you can ride?
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The Speed Channel has probably accelerated her dislike for motorcycles more than the actual sport. She hates the foreign guys voices and the constant "drone" of the race engines. I think they sound great, especially with a good beer!

And, they are no fun either.
How can looking at antique furniture and jewelry EVEN COMPARE to riding a bike. I mean C'MON ALREADY!!! Get a life!!
And cheers to drinking a Sam Adams, sitting in a lounger and looking at my bikes (WR and XR50R)!!

Honest to god, one jump is all it takes. The most amazing activity I have ever participated in. Way better than any drug.

You know who you are. You're all all a bunch of sick S.O.B.'s. I can't see how you can all spend your free time on this stupid dirtbike site.
