    Do you let other people take your motorcycle for a ride?

    Just curious since this is my first bike and I just got asked for the first time the other day by someone if they could try my bike out. My answer was "no" and I popped in a joke about having me make the 4th payment on it first before I let other people ride it. But it got me thinking if that is a common thing to do, ride other people's motorcycles like that.

    I picked up the wave pretty quick, that is something jeep owners (well, some jeep owners) do also.

    Just curious here. Is it because they may lay it down, or is it because asking to ride someone else's motorcycle is like asking to kiss their mom? Personally, I don't really dig the idea of someone else riding my bike, it is my baby. I just wanted to make sure I was right in thinking that.

    Well several reasons, one it is my second wife, you anit riding my wife! two they may dump it, just because someone says they can ride a bike or even have a license does not mean thay can ride. third HELL THE F*#$ NO YOU ANIT RIDING MY BIKE!!! Once you become a biker the saying "dont mess with my family, money, or food" changes to the addition of MY BIKE! the next time someone asks to ride your bike ask to ride thier girl, or go sit in thier car.

    Roger what Dino said. One of tha' good things about runnin' a jockey shift is that it makes a great reason for sayin' "no". Although, that never stopped me from sayin' no before... As an aside, I take the same view for even touchin' my bike w/o my permission. The analogy of my bike bein' my second wife holds true. Touchin' or sittin' on a man's bike w/o his permission is simply disrespectful and a good way to get "educated" about motorcycle protocol. Jus' my penny's worth... Respects
