I can absolutely confirm I am 100% attached to my bike(s) in a deep way. I honestly think my wife is jealous.
Some friends commented to my girlfriend that “you know he has a mistress, right?” She laughed and replied: “The bike is the wife; I’m the mistress.” Bless her!
Found a keeper
I used to be more attached to my bike when I only had one, now with a few I feel less attached to the bikes but even more emotionally attached to the act of riding them. I’ve said this before but riding really is my therapy.
