Its rediculous. I ride too much.

I need to scale down to once a week for a couple of hours, compared to riding every second or third day for a couple of hours.

How do you stop yourself from riding?

Last year I put on 7000 miles alone. I just rebuilt the motor and box and got it back on the 18th of December. I already have 14hours on her. I dont want to do a complete rebuild before the next 2 years or so.

Do I lock the bike up and give the key to somebody?

I had to stop my self from riding for a while, so i pulled my bike to bits and put some wiring on. It worked, just when i needed to ride for some stupid reason i couldn't, but it does work.

Maybe you should move somewhere colder. This is what keeps me from riding too much.

They all love riding until the hooks are all the way in.

first come marriage .... then the baby carriage - now that is the cure you need.

I was going to say that, ha! But in my two recently-married buddy's defense their wives ride just as much as they do.

But you're self-employed (the original poster) and have lots of good time. Take up shooting and don't reload ammo: you'll be broke before you know it and can't afford riding. Ta-day, problem solved. :banghead:

get married ! :bonk::lol:
