I've been granted the great blessing of having a wife who enjoys riding with me. But I have also experienced what it's like to go off on my own and realize that that was time that I could have spent with her. Every Spring after my bike has been sitting for a couple of months, I make it a point to ride the bike by myself for the first two or three times so that I reacquaint myself fully with the bike before I ever take a passenger. Fortunately, when my wife goes with me, she is such a good rider that I hardly know she's there; and that makes all the difference in the world!
I'm not saying that we don't talk when we ride or that we don't participate in activities together when we're together on the bike, but rather that she just has a very adaptable way. She knows how to make my job as the driver much easier just by the way she presents herself on the bike during the ride.
I belonged for many years to a motorcycle chapter here and Connecticut that went on numerous events, and there were always one or two cars that came along behind the motorcycles. Regardless of the reasons for their need to be in a car, they were very helpful to us in many situations.
If I thought for one moment, that riding the motorcycle alone, would be something that would cause a rift between my spouse and myself, I would sell the bike and a heartbeat.
Based on some of your original comments Else, your husband might want to consider How Deeply he values your relationship. It sounds to me like you're looking for an excuse to bail.
I've been the victim in my life, of such comments, and I see the writing on the wall.
