"Alright ....let's do this!" then I start it.....

yeah we have a pretty unique relationship, but we take care of each other. After all, when she (my bike) gets hurt...so do I.

and I tell her to "watch that car..." or what have you, depending on what's going on! Sometimes I even tell her to "chill out"....(for obvious reasons)

It took everything in me to not jump the barrier and go to that poor guy. I just kept thinking he wasn't dead but if he doesn't get out of that lane, he will be soon. As a mom... It tore my heart out!

There's a small little sticker/picture of my wife and daughter on the gas tank. I touch it each time I'm about to go somewhere.

I know what you mean about the last kiss thingy, If we are riding and we have to go seperate ways I like to put my hand to my mouth (helmet) and blow him a kiss. Just to say goodbye for now.:icon_bigg

I currently say something along the lines of this but i think with all the wrecks ive been seeing lately, ill be getting a little more in depth as far as my bonding with my bike before a ride and saying a little something extra!
