My fiance has a Harley Davidson bike he bought last year and he is OBSESSED with it.
When I met him, he was riding his Dad’s old bike and wasn’t super into motorcycles (he just started riding that summer or the summer before I believe).
Now he is like a full blown addict. He always wants to go on poker runs, memorial rides, ect. He always wants to take it out the second we have decent weather (and I mean EVERYWHERE on dates, to the movies, to dinner, to the bar, ect). He wears Harley Davidson everything and is constantly doing something his bike, and it’s also constantly needing to be fixed consequently. He set up a 2000 dollar budget this year on his bike and he’s already 1500 over that. When he bought it he went on about how he’d be so happy with it and never need another bike again, now he’s constantly adding and changing things saying it’ll be the last thing he does, until he comes up with another idea or occasionally he says he wants to trade it in for a brand new one.
I’m not a fan of motorcycles, I don’t think they’re safe. I think it sucks riding in 90 degree heat and humidity. I hate going out and fealing with helmet hair and pony tails and having to dress bike approrpiate. Not to mention it takes 15 minuetes to get the bike ready, and another 15 minuetes of primping and checking things when we get to wherever we’re going. At least once a week he spend a minimum of 6 hours washing and detailing his bike.
It’s starting to drive me nuts. I was hoping this was just a phase but now I’m worried he’s going to become one of those crazy biker guys walking around in leather all day every day.
He’s only 24 going on 25, is it possible he’s going to get over this? Or at least a little bored of it? His dad has a bike but he takes it out maybe 3 times a summer, he hardly uses it.
