Before I took off to Down Under, my husband told me that he wanted to get a motorbike. Not sounding like a queen control, I protested. I told him he can get it once I’m back for good.
When I first got married to him, I found his excitement towards engines quite fascinating. I don’t understand it, but it’s okay, I don’t want to, and I don’t need to. Seriously though, they’re just engines and yes, there were nights where he let me sleep alone so that he could watch videos or documentaries about cars or motorbikes! oh well, boys will always be boys. I’ll be worried if he’s more excited about Barbie or doing his hair. I’ll just show my support and he can show his support towards my love towards shopping. hehehe 😀
After he told me that he seriously wanted to get a bike, he kept on pestering me with it, even after I said what I said. Almost every night, I went to bed with engine sounds ringing in my ear as my husband (excitedly) feeding himself with videos of bikes showing off their horse power. He kept doing the same thing even after I flew here. Finally, I told him, he can get a bike, if he promises to keep himself safe, and, to not ever let anyone ride on the back, AND never to respond to girls glaring.
Why did I say the last one, you may ask. No, I’m not insecure. I trust my husband with all my hearts. However, I am a girl and I damn well know how a girl feels! Well, atleast a girl who thinks alike. There is one thing that can turn a woman on: big equipments. Atleast for a first impression.
Big equipments here can mean many thing, but they’re not too far off from each other. It’s either big expensive cars, big cameras, big golf club, big watches (not literally of course) and last but not least, big bikes because all these equates to possibly big salary. Yea, we women don’t know much about all the specs, engine sounds, whatsoever, so we take these things visually (or $$$). If they are attractive to us, and chances are, so are you.
Anyway, like I said, I trust him and I know how much he loves me. It’s just that thinking about how he MIGHT be under girls’ radar now (hopefully not) is quite disturbing. I am very posessive when it comes to my things. Even to this day, I freak out whenever somebody touches my stuff (except for certain people like my husband, my parents and my sister). No, seriously. That’s one of my pet peeves.
Actually I am very excited he got the bike. Like, VERY EXCITED. Firstly, I always (secretly) wanted to have a guy who plays the guitar but never actually met someone who could, and turned out I married one! And now, this? How lucky can I get?? ;D
I can’t wait to go back Malaysia and ride with my husband to random places. I’ve been talking about driving to Malacca just to have a bowl of cendol since forever and now that he got the bike, we’re gonna do just that! Woohoo! 😀
I know what we can do. Find nearby cool places and and randomize it. We can then take a trip there on weekend morning.
I think you should try sitting at the back first. I’m not trying to scare you but, I get a little slimy when I ride somewhere. Maybe I don’t go fast enough, or maybe it’s just the weather these days.
Occasionally, I do get the stare from other bikers, the envy kind of stare. Partly because I ride the bike pretty slow in the city and on highway. I cant even if I want to. First, I havent clocked enough miles to run faster than 100kmh, second, I’m still unfamiliar with the gear change and all.
Reading your article helped me a lot and I agree with you. But I still have some doubts, can you clarify for me? I’ll keep an eye out for your answers.
I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?
