There was a Shop that sells Antiques, nick knacks, Finely-tuned Wind chimes and of all things...Biker Gear located about 15 miles from where we live that I had been meaning to take her to. This gave me the golden opportunity to put the two together...Our First Ride and taking Her to the Quaint Little Shop...It was a Very Special Day for the Both of Us. I really don't know if she even had her eyes opened the trip there because she said she noticed a lot more stuff on the way home... but I did buy her a prize or two while we were there.... She did however pick out a nice pair of motorcycle boots on her own and did a very nice job of getting a very good pair, some good padded shades and gloves. Two days ago she ordered her helmet and jacket to match. I think I might have opened a "Can 'O Worms" here...she now has a $400+ Shopping Cart she emailed me from LeatherUp.com...


...but I couldn't be Happier...
Are you in SA? If so, where is this quaint shop you talk about?

We now live in Johnson City due to my wife's job promotion to Fredericksburg but the Shop is in Blanco in the Square called..."On the Square"... Give me a shout and I would love to give you a nice little mini tour of some of the stuff around here...

Thanks. We are riding to Round Rock tomorrow for the holiday. Then sitting with the grandkids while my son and his wife go shopping Friday morning. Then later on Friday, we will ride to Harper, just beyond Fredericksburg, and visit with my sister overnight. Then Sat, head to New Braunfels to have lunch with my other sister while on the ride home to Houston.

My route on Friday may be FM1431 around Lake Travis to 281, then 290 at Johnson City.

My route on Saturday generally is Fredericksburg, Albert, Blanco, Devils Backbone, Purgatory Rd, Canyon Lake, River Road, Gruene, etc.

Maybe there is a window in that itinerary to meet up? I looked at the website and am interested in the Black Helmet apparel. My son is an Austin FF.

Congrats BB, It's so nice when the wife enjoys your interests and embraces them as her own. That is especially encouraging in light of your recent accident.

I'm experiencing something similar with my wife right now. Last night, she said something about getting a trike, and I jumped on that idea like a chicken on a junebug. We used to ride horses when we were younger and riding a bike reminds her of our cowboy days. I wish I could get her on her own 2 wheels, but I'll settle for 3.

Jody

Congrats BB...
I'll have to live vicariously through you.
My wife has no interest whatsoever getting on the back of mine.
My 10yo daughter, however, would love to go for a longer ride than just around the neighborhood. I need a bit more experience and courage to do that though.

Thanks for sharing

That is great news BB; the wife and you and the new Hog. I wish the three of you many happy miles and years together on the road.

Congrats! I still cannot get my wife to ride, she feels to "out there" on my C50T even though it has the nice big backrest. She wants something more to hold on to than me and more seat wrapped around. My buddy recently bought a Can-Am Spyder and she thought she would ride on that (Sighh). I hope I don't have to trade the C50 for a Can-Am!
