I can honestly say, that before you get together with a hott bike rider, and you atomatically say "I want a bike too". Ride with him for a little bit, and make sure it's something you're a little bit interested in. Riding your own bike is alot different than riding with your man. I rode with my man about 2 weeks before I decided I loved it, and absolutely had to have my own bike. He put me through a 4 hour riding safety course a bike that I borrowed, which is now the bike I own. That's a women's make or break point, it's frustrating, but if riding's really for you, you'll make it through it. I'm fully riding now, and it's my escape from everything, it's my world now. Just make sure it's really what you want to do before you go shopping for a bike to impress your man, if your relationship it good, it won't matter to him if you ride. But if riding is truly your passion, you can enjoy it together, and have the freedom of riding by yourselves, and getting to do it together. Make sure you buy GOOD gear, and wear it everywhere NO MATTER what. It takes one "short" trip to the store to total you and your bike, so be smart and wear gear EVERYWHERE!! Otherwise, ride, love your man, and love riding with him, whether it be on the back of his bike, or on your own, it's the best thing in the world!!
