Hello Netriders, Just passed the test for my L's recently. Trying now to purchase my first bike, but having an issue with my partner. She's really not keen on the idea that I want to ride and seems determined to stop me. Using the kids against me, threating to post online that I dont care about my family or even willing to host an intervention. Wanting to ride my pushbike to work in the past resulted in sleepless nights and arguments. It's been hard to get to this stage and I hate lying but I really want to be a rider. Ever since my dad has been riding I have wanted nothing more. I feel like I have no other choice than to be deceptive, sneaky and defiant. There is no sign of understanding and I mite just have to pull into the driveway with my bike and face the consequences. They say it's better to ask for forgiveness rather than permission right?
