    Actually that was a brand new pic, she wants to delight our readers every Christmas with a personal "Christmas card" of our blog. :)

    Not sure I would ever leave her alone long enough to ride a motorcycle.

    35 years married today!
    Married at 21, two wonderful sons, 3 amazing grandsons (so far!)

    This photo is from a motorbike tour in Vietnam a couple of years ago.
    I'm a lucky man!

    Indeed! My wife - 20 years together in 2020 - has been on a moto exactly once, around the block at 15 mph. Nearly crushed my kidneys, holding on. Doesn't bicycle either. Thankfully, my kid rides two-up and has his own TTR125.

    I joke about getting a moto-friendly girlfriend, to keep warm in the tent on those adv rides, and she feigns indifference... :deal

    Haha my wife pillions a fair bit, on my Speed Triple and KLR650.
    In Vietnam she did every km on the back even while raining on the Ho Chi Minh Trail when she could have got into the support van.

    My favorite pic of me and my then girlfriend of just over one year, back in 2012 (both of us 55) on our tour of the UP. This shot was taken by a person who offered to take our picture for us up at Castle Rock near Munising. An impromptu pic that became our favorite. Then to find our the person taking the photo was a college classmate of mine!

    We met on Match.com. She had never really ridden before, but loves to ride with me. She understands that motorcycling for me is not just a passion, but a fact of my life, and understands that eleven bikes is not something to gripe about. Even puts up with my crap and two cats, so in Sept 2018 we got married. Wish I had met her over 30 years ago. True love is possible, but being dumb lucky don't hurt either, and yes, helmet hair can be sexy (on her, I mean, I keep the hat on).

    Great pic!!! I met my significant other 21 years ago last month. She doesn't ride with me although an avid bicycle rider. But, says see you in a couple of weeks. Be careful, call me and have fun. By the way, I'm now 71 and she's 63 and beautiful and awesome! I'm a happy man!

    Thanks for all the great comments. She is such a sweetheart. I tend, no, I am, a mechanical hoarder, and as such I have many bikes, bike parts, project bikes, which is the reason I am now building a 24x28 shop garage. And yet, she accepts and loves me, and my passions (motorcycling, singing, downhill skiing) even if we don't share them all. Her only requests of late; clean out the attached garage so she can park her car in there (winter in Wisconsin can be messy and cold) and move the 76 BMW R100RS from the front entrance of the house to the new shop garage. THIS is can do. It'll fit well with the other bikes, big screen TV, pizza oven/microwave in my man cave/shop. She'll always know where she can find me.

    Definitely not a pin up girl and definitely not on an Indian or a harley. She got on my KTM in Argentina (actually it was Chile) while I waited for the ferry, my wife wanted to know how she ended up on my bike, when she saw the picture. See doghouse video earlier in this thread.
