Ok, this baby's been sitting here taking up space for too long. I'm tired of making payments on a bike the woman won't ride. I figured I'd be nice and surprise her with her very own 250cc. bike that I used to ride. Well she doesn't want any part of riding her own bike, she thinks it's too complicated and get's pissed if I even mention it! Jeesh. But hey, she really is a great girl, just not the motorcycle type i Guess. She'd rather ride B*tch.

1999 Honda Nighthawk 250cc, FOR SALE. $2,000.

Don't feel too bad, man. I work with a gal who wouldn't let her husband have a motorcycle. It took the combined efforts of him and I to finally convince her to let him get one (he's already an accomplished street rider who sold his bike before they met and now wants to break into dirt bikes. Otherwise I wouldn't have "gone to bat" for him. I wouldn't want any mis-hap to be my fault). So at least your gal is open minded enough to be a part of motorcycling as opposed to disallowing anything with 2 wheels and a motor anywhere around the premesis.:)

Sorry your wife/girlfriend (?) doesn't want to ride, but at least she has no problems with you riding. I know several guys who want to ride, but can't because of thier wives. My wife wants to learn how to ride within the next couple of years and I am thinking either of a GS500 or Nighthawk 250. Did the drum brake up front ever seem to be not powerful enough for the 250? That is the biggest concern I have with her getting the 250 in a couple of years verses the 500.

The drum brakes on my 250 supply more than enough braking power. Keep in mind its only slowing about 280 pounds of bike doesn't have to work real hard. They stop on a dime. Plus they're pretty easy to maintain.

Stan,

Hi . . this is Stan. Nice to now another Stan owns a
ZR-7 out there.

If I were you be very glad that you are allowed to own
one. I, too, was lucky enough to find one that "grew up
with a Motorcycle in the house". Her father had 15 bikes
at one point and had to sell them to move. :mecry:

She'd like to get one of her own but she's still waiting
for the baby to get a little older (only 5 months) so she
and I can ride together :~

My Dad used to own a bike when I was a kid and he was
married to my mom. They've since broken up and he's salivated
over my new ZR-7 and his new wife claims "He's too old to
be out there".

It's a shame what we have to give up for love sometimes . .
(the bike I mean not the wife). I do feel lucky and so should
you. :D

BTW, Here's my wife's web-site http://www.katwoman.com
You can see why I feel lucky.

Best of luck selling the old girl (once again the bike, not the
wife :laugh: )

Here's the thing guys. She's found me. :~
I was just smart enough to not let her go :D

She's the mother of my 2 beautiful baby boys
too. :eek:

The only thing I can really complain about is that
I have to go to work :smilewink

Well, I would prefer to stay home but with a family, new
mortgage and car payment (New Toyota Sequoia for her).
I NEED to go to work. :(

The best way to get to work is on my new ZR-7S (luckily paid for)
unless it's raining then I take my Cherokee (also paid for).

I would gladly stay home but I need some more donations to
the, Katwoman's Husband Stay @ Home fund. Care to
contribute ? :smilewink
