Of course there is no comparison (for me at least, I don't know for some of you). It will always be my wife over my rides (except on those I-wish-I-never-had-married-days). However, we can't help it that the attention we give our rides (and the Fun Runs we join) have been an issue of envy for our wives. The more time we spend with our rides means the less time for them.
Suggestion: Make your special someone feel she is the most important person (or thing - when she pitifully compares herself with our rides) in your life. Never ever forget to greet her a [SIZE="5"]HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY![/SIZE] ...of course greet your moms (and mother-in-laws) too!
