An open letter to worried partners - This is why we ride (and why you need to stop worrying)
Written by Miley Stevens   
Monday, 25 November 2013 10:14

When I first told my partner that I was going to start riding a motorcycle, it's fair to say that it didn't go down well.

Of course she'd heard countless horror stories of people falling off their bikes, and the thought of sitting at home worrying while I was speeding down busy roads was something that she just couldn't stand the thought of. Furthermore, she couldn't understand why I would feel compelled to put myself in such danger, and to spend so much money for the privilege. What’s the upshot?"

So I thought I'd do my bit for the community and share my monologue with you here. Show this to your worried partners and hopefully it will help them to understand a bit about why you feel the need to ride, because I wish that something like this was available when was in the throes of that debate. You're welcome…
