A Crisis? No Way!

Yeah, my husband got a motorcycle.

A younger friend made the comment, “Oh, a mid-life crisis!”

I have to admit, that put me a little on the defensive. I didn’t say anything, but got to thinking about it later.

Why does a 54 year old man getting a brand new Honda VTX 1300 cruiser have to be having a crisis? This is the same man who sold his first motorcycle when our first child was born so we could buy a second car. It’s the same man who has owned his own business for over 30 years, helped me raise seven children, allowed me to stay home with them, and has been married to me for 34 years!

I wouldn’t say it’s a crisis! I call it a CELEBRATION!! Yea!!

And riding on the back is a LOT of fun!

You notice she said when their first child was born. Yes, she was pregnant & riding around on a motorcycle with me. :> And you wonder why I turned out the way I did??? All I know is you guys are cool grandparents now!

Certainly, it is not a crisis. Everyone has the right to ride a motorcycle. Everyone have the right to enjoy the fun of the bike. I meet many friends on a site called bikerkiss. Some of them are older than 50. But they still like riding motorcycles. They say it is a part of their life to ride the motorcycles.
