Principles, man!  Principles!   :spank

As manly as we all think we are Shillas , a strategic withdrawal is always a good ploy when doing negotiations with your wife i have found .
She really does loose her shit and me , the children , dog , cats , horses , sheep and guinnea pigs often get advise from her  :spank

Envy... I struggle to get wifey on the back of mine. Her birthday is coming up so I'm thinking of some m/c lessons for her.
She wants me to go on a cruise, but I'm reluctant. Not quite a trade war but complex trade negotiations nonetheless.

Tough scenario.  If she's unhappy on the bike there's no point in forcing the issue.  If she's anxious about m/c safety then being able to ride herself wouldn't make much difference.
You'd probably enjoy a cruise, but the novelty soon wears off. 
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
