Hey, it's a tough delima. Everyone has there Bike, Golf, Bars...something! After 30+ years of marriage and three grown kids, one thing I know, She will always hate the BIKE!!! You can't just give her some of your time, you have to give her some free time of her own. Let her find her bike, and give it to her. I any case, good luck and safe riding.

For what it's worth, whatever you do that is "weekly" that you do on your own, cut it down to "monthly", or at leat once every two weeks...and cut the actual time in half.

spend time with the kids, and wife. learn that motorcycling is not nearly important than watching your kids learn,grow, and experience life, with YOU.

I have been riding for 20 years. Ain't gonna happen!

Any chance she might be interested in learning to ride? Would it be fun to ride together? Or is part of your freedom getting away from her?

The extent of my riding is commute on Friday when nice out. An occasional group ride with MH. Some 2-3 hour rides just about every other weekend with close friends. On those 2-3 hour rides with friends I can be out and back by 11am on a Saturday or Sunday and my wife still feels like she has the day with me. Then, a nice long ride for a few days somewhere. This happens maybe twice a year.

P.S. Recently bought my wife a bike. We will see whether she enjoys it like me. If it turns out she does not like it I am just going to rape her new bike.

no don't change. Let her know that weds and and every other early morning Sat till 1 is your time. But make sure to plan 2 days especially for her.

Patrick Dempsey said that his marriage is great because his wife understand his need to race. Riding motorcycles is what keeps you on an even keel with all the stuff you have to do. other wise you will pick up other habits like cheating, drugs a aaa aalcohol.

Don't argue the point. Either stand up to her and say this is me. Im not changing. Or give up and quit riding. There is no compromising that. And make sure you have a good life insurance policy. It just comes with the game.

The point is if you have to change to make someone happy you will never make them happy and you will become bitter in the end because of all the changing you have done. You won't even be you anymore.

Sundays i like to go out and do some back roads early in the morning! then i would spend time with my kids after riding on Sundays and after work everyday.

my son and i would play with the pocket bikes after i finish from work then i would ether go to the gym @ 9pm or go home and go to sleep and sometimes watch a movie at home.

i don't drink or smoke....so its not like im out everyday drinking, i don't get home after 12am and party everyday at night, but the only thing i ask my wife and for some freedom on me getting to go out with the guys every now and then, is it too much for me to ask???

she said that her problem is that she wants go to out....but she said that im the one always going out with my friends and i am never home and never spend time doing anything.

(we been marry for over 5 years) i was like WTF is it that you wanna do?? we are not going out like high school.... i know am a sometimes but really?? we do things together, not everyday..but we do every other day during the week, catch a movie that just came out, or go out for a little cruise on the bike.

married riders...does your bike gets in your way with your family?? does anyone has the same problem as i do??

GIVE ME YOUR INPUT PEOPLE... maybe i can open my eyes and see WTF is it that im doing wrong here?
It depends on the woman and how you can work it out.

I told my wife when we were dating that asking me to choose between her and riding was a dangerous proposition - and she might not like the outcome.

On the other hand, I love my wife more than my next breath, so there has to be a compromise.

What I'm hearing from you though is an argument her and I have had many times. It usually has nothing to do with you being on the bike - it has to do with the fact that she needs to know you care - and to an extent, that she is bored and needs some fun.

Take her out in the cage once or twice a month. Take a shower, put on a shirt with a collar, take her to dinner.

- if you need help, lemme know and we'll make it a foursome. Do my wife some good to meet some new people anyway.

Dude - i love you like a brother, I really do, but you REALLY shouldnt give relationship advice.

2 kids by 22 is not abnormal. In fact, its pretty damned normal when it comes right down to it.

Yes, people change. Its going to happen. Part of the commitment of marriage is telling each other that you accept this but you love the other one enough to work with the changes - good AND bad.

One day you're going to meet The One, and you'll understand this.

Not "make" as in to make her do something, ding-dong! What I'm saying is to make her part of your fun. For example: When I started talking about getting a bike; my wife said, ", NO!" I took her to various cycle shops showing her jackets and helmets, etc.
She then went from riding on my new bike to getting her own. THAT'S what I mean by making her a part of things you do.

Her opinion matters if you wanna keep your marriage happy.
Maybe one week per month you can ride both days.
A man busting his shouldn't be a justification to spend less time with the important people in your life.
+1 She needs time out too. If she's home with the kids all day, everyday, she needs to get out too. You need less time on the bike and more with your family. There's always time for aride. A marriage is something you have to work on together. I know I'v been married 35 years. And I love riding my bike too.
