No way I'm encouraging her to ride nor does she have any desire....I talked her into an ATV and it was a pretty site to see.
Just doesn't have a good relationship with motor vehicles. She tried a scooter once....it didn't go well.
I think I ride a fair amount.....I put about 7k miles on the bike last season.
and no I don't have any real good reason to trade up...want is the biggest factor.
I think I'm going to try and save up for a big down payment and add selling the old bike and I'll only have a small loan.
