    @hiroshymatetrastar:  My Fiance rides almost year-round, has 2 enduros and he wouldn’t ride at 150mph (or 100mph) anyday of the year let alone right before the wedding. I would say hell no, interesting that he appears to think this is okay.  My Fiance is taking a 4 day trip through Canada w/ some buddies and doing some camping.  We watched this mini-series together pretty interesting plus Ewan McGregor http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403778/

    nope not being harsh at all.  I would never let my Darling Husband ride a motorcycle, on any day, at any speed.  In my line of work I see sooo many accidents involving motocycles and 95% of those riders don’t survive.  Not happening.  not ever.

    I would try to seriously talk my fiance out of it any day of the year, no doubt.

    I just think it’s kind of bizarre that your main concern is that it’s close to the wedding. Like, if he gets seriously injured, it will screw up your wedding plans? Maybe that’s not what you mean, but that’s how it comes across to me.

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  If FI/DH already had a motorcycle and you are ok with it, I think it’s a bit harsh/controlling because if it’s an activity that he does from time to time – the proximity to the wedding is irrelevant.  That said – there’s no way in hell my Darling Husband will be allowed to purchase a motorcycle… so, take that for being ‘controlling’. 🙂

    Since he already rides a motorcycle, I think it’s harsh to outright ban him.  Has he been drag racing before?  You can definitely express your concerns and that you want him to be safe but it’s his decision if he wants to go or not.  I’m sure he doesn’t want to be in a cast on his wedding day any more than you.

    Why would he EVER drag race, much less right before the wedding?  Does he have a death wish?

    I voted “yes” because it seems harsh (to me) telling your grown Fiance what he can and cannot do. If I were in your shoes, I would worry like crazy and make him promise promise PROMISE to be careful.

    I dunno, i guess i would say you should trust that your Fiance wont do anything too crazy and dangerous.
