We Yanks always fall in love with our cars and bikes. They become a part of us.

  I hear you Scott.
Any other Enfields in New England?

It's the same here. Well - we love the good'ns - I've had some I hated... >:(
I think it's universal, though mainly a male phenomenon  8)
Look at us all - falling in love with machinery. That aint soul - that's instead of soul   ;)
Modern times......  :-\

"Taking up motorbiking again at your age?" some folk have asked, looking askance.
"It's good for the soul", I tell em, with a wink.

I love it. You know I love it   :D

Motorcycling has great soul!  And it is great for the Marriage.

Best thing I ever did was to get my Wife of 25 years onto her own bike.  We did it a few years ago, gave us a whole new world to explore together. You know she is always saying we don't do enough together.

Yes Sir, we can spend the whole day together her on he bike an I on mine, we can ride the hills and dales and valleys of this great world, together..........

.and I can't hear a single word she says.......all day......... ;D

Shoulda' thought of that decades ago! ;)

"honey, look what I got you for your birthday - one of those two-way motorbike radios. Now I can TELL you stuff even when we're out riding..."    :o

My wife took the MSF course and got her license about 7 years ago.  She said it helped her enjoy being a passenger more.  Sadly I sold my bike shortly after that so she never tried riding on the road.

I got the C5 partly as a family bike.  I figure I can add a sidecar in a few years and we can all go out together for country rides and Sunday brunch.  I told my wife I may need to get another C5 once the sidecar goes on this one.  Yknow, just for commuting and such ;)  I need  a place with a bigger garage,,,,
