    big trouble in little china...

    What's the best way to politely decline unsolicited requests to ride my bike? Its become a rather sore subject around my house. i'm to the point I would rather let hubs have this bike, than watch somebody else dam near wreck it showing off their lack of operating skills. (grrr) sorry about the fussiness, but I need some help!

    Just say they are not covered in the case of an accident on your insurance...

    just say "no"! no explanation necessary! or you could say "bikes are like partners, when they are with you no one else rides them"

    I like the way y'all think. as far as just saying no goes, that doesn't work. its my hubbies friends. they're pretty persistent in harassing me. all in good sport of course. but im not having it.

    It's obvious to us that you really LOVE your little bike....think how mad you would be if some wannabee/wishIwas dumped your baby....

    There are only a couple people who I would even consider letting ride my bikes..

    I have 2 friends who I ride with sometimes, one just sold his Harley and the other has already mentioned to me, hey...how about letting Chris ride one of your bikes? That way, all 3 of us can go ride...

    All I have to do is remember the scratch's he had on his bike from dumping it...

    Like I said, there are only a couple people who I would even consider letting ride my unscratched, taken care of lovingly, bikes.

    Plus... Both my TW and Harley are hot rods!! He couldn't handle either one.

    Your husband should tell his friends to stand down and stop the childish behavior, you have every right to say no to other riders, it is your bike, your new pride and joy and your husband is letting his friends ruin this new found love for riding. It is ok to show him this post, maybe he will man up for you and put your feelings before his friends.

    Pocket your keys and stand your ground! It would help to have the support of your husband first so he can tell his buddies to back off and respect you. Otherwise they might enjoy continuing to tease you with the bike-borrowing.
    Tell them biker chicks deserve respect and hide those keys!

    Just ask them...

    Is there "life after death"?
    Touch my bike and you'll be the first to find out...
