Is it abnormal

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Rolski, Mar 5, 2015.

  1. I obtained my bike a couple of months ago now, is it abnormal for me, to still me be staring at it like I just got it yesterday, my wife thinks so, chilli's her name, not my wife,..the bike image.

  2. I am afraid you are a lost cause, welcome to the club. Every bike I have ever had has made my heart lift when I open the garage and there it is. Even the oldest clunker.

  6. No matter how long I've owned a bike, I always catch myself glancing back as I'm walking away after a ride. Even when I was riding a little 125 through Vietnam, sure she was a rental but for three days she was 'mine' and I looked at her the same way.

    (My wife sometimes quizzes me when I've been in the basement working on the bike for too long: "Were you actually working on it the whole time, or did you just stare at it for a while?" Smart lady, my wife.)

  7. Perfectly normal. I've named it (Finch) and call out to it every time I go out to the garage (Finchy!). I snuck out for a ride today and every chance I get. (I'm not normally a sneak!) I spend far too much time on this NR site thingy reading about bikes, drooling over future bikes and wondering what the hell is wrong with me. Other than being too short to for most of the bikes I drool over.

  8. I would find it abnormal if seeing the bike didn't spark some feeling in you. A bike, like a nice car, should fill you with emotion and make you smile :)

    Then when you get that all too familiar nod from other riders you know that they know that you know that they know how awesome a bike is!

  10. I can join u in the short club golden, have been thinking of spending the big $ and buying one of those custom made Corbin leather seats, they drop the seat height by 40mm, would make my sweet ride even sweeter.
