For as long as we have been together, we have enjoyed many hours and miles on a motorcycle.
We have been through several different brands and styles over the years, but one thing has remained constant with each one - close attention has been paid to our motorcycle safety gear.
My husband has always kept our bike in top mechanical performance as well as insisting on motorcycle helmets for anyone who gets on his bike.
Before we started our family, I was almost tempted to get my motorcycle license, but being a passenger and helping my husband as an extra set of eyes while he is driving worked for me.
My son is now of age to get his license. A motorcycle safety class is now required by the state in order to do so, so I have been thinking again about that license.
Even if I don't actually get the license, having the training under my belt would be a valuable thing.
I have always been impressed with my husband's handling of any bike he has driven - he is very responsible and careful, and having over forty years of motorcycle driving experience isn't too shabby either.
Time for me to do some cleaning up of my hjc ac-12 carbon helmet and for my husband to finish the couple of small repairs left to do on our bike.
Then look out summer - here we come!
