Ride? - with girlfriend? North Houston area

So, since I have been in this lovely city I have yet to be able to ride with my girlfriend. She has been asking me about getting the bike out and riding with her. The few rides I have been on (which have been kick azz rides) are to long for my girl to want to go.

So, the purpose of this thread is to see if any other riders out there ride with their significant others, or ride by themselves, and would be interested in riding here locally. Possible going to dinner or something? Or know of a bike night in the area?

My wife & I rode out to Kemah boardwalk last night. We should get a 2-up group ride together.

I have heard about that Kehma, but have not been. I move to Houston a little over a month ago, so I have not been very many places.

I am open to all options.

Alright. I'll try to put together a '2-up' ride this month. Unless someone else beats me to it.

That's actually a great idea, I have been thinking about setting something like that up. However, the only problem is that my wife don't like to ride. She will only ride if I got a cruiser. I can understand where she is coming from. I just don't think that will be anytime in the near future. So much for that thought :eh:

I say you go for it. I would set one up, but I know how to get to about 3 or 4 places. I will keep my out for the post.

If she's really interested in riding with you, that's a great thing. Think of all the poor fools that have to "ask permission" to go out riding.

Maybe you'll use this opportunity to consider a bike that is powerful enough for your riding style but also slightly more comfortable for a passenger on long rides? VFR, Sprint ST (just to name a few)

I also like the idea of gathering with SO's locally, but it doesn't have the same effect as a ride out in the styx.

ask permission? those poor souls...check out the FZ1. its basically a less aggressive R1, but only slightly, way more passenger friendly with plenty of power and its also got a real passenger seat for your lady. AND grab rails! imagine that. you can get a used for not too terribly much money.
