The FireBolt isn't easy on the eyes either.

I feel your pain as my fiance basically tolerates riding on the back of K12. Thats after I spent the $$$ on the stealth backrest, prior she was simply terrified of pulling a Jacque Cousteau off the back. Anyone with a K12 check out Jerry's site and pick one up.

I guess I'm just a lucky b@stard...



my gf doesn't ride with me, she rides her own bike.

That's the way it should be, but my wife won't have it...

I agree, give her a chance, she may like it after all.



BTW the R1 may not be the best choice of a bike if you want a passenger, though.

Dude, Watch Out!

Most women are down on bikes after marriage, even if they seem to like them before. If she already hates them, forget about it. Find a chick who rides, or at least loves bikes. Then,even if her enthusiasm drops a little in the future, she can still tolerate your bike.

I got hit by a lady in an F 250 truck running a red light in November. I will be back to normal in about a year's time. My girlfriend was by my side for 3 days in ICU, 9 days in a regular hospital room. My family wants me to give up riding. My girlfriend says that she knows how much I love it and whatever I decide to do she will support my decision. That, my friends, is a keeper!

The $150 is for a specific performance software download. This is not just the "latest EFI map," which are free (except for labor where applicable) when needed during routine service. Apples and Oranges for the most part.

My bike, my dog, my beer, my woman ... in that order. That's a keeper and that's the Australian way. Sure she loves to ride but I'm afraid that if she falls off the collar might snap her neck. Guess I could leave her at home with the wife but then who would fetch the next beer? Decisions, decisions.



Is there a kennel in the "Detachables" range from HD?
