Do you wear your ring?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.

I know I'm not a she, but I thought I would chime in on this one. The only time I take my wedding ring off is when I am riding. It tears the callus off of my palm if I leave it on. My ring is a big bulky tungsten ring, I probably wouldn't have that problem with a smaller ring though.

I take mine off when I ride because my hands swell and the ring gets tight on the finger. I also take it off when Im doing work around the house so it doesn't get damaged. When my company was moving I was moving a filing cabinet and it got away from me and my hand got caught between the cabinet and the wall. No big deal until I tried to take my ring off. It got slightly crushed and I had trouble getting it off.

Welcome to the forum and welcome to ATVing SDgirl. Glad you are enjoying yourself!!!

I never wear mine when I race for fear of breaking a finger and having to get it cut off :aargh:

I wore it trail riding a few times but it makes a callus on my hand if we go out all day. I also have to watch taking my glove off because the setting gets caught. I have to watch when it's cold too cause it gets a little loose. :no:

I ran across this thread and figured there must be SOME solution out there... well I found one and wanted to share it with y'all... I found it on a running forum but I bought a purple one to match my helmet. www.ringwrapper.com

I'll let you know how it works out when I get it!

So I got the Ring Wrapper (purple of course) and finally got to go ride in the mud. I had NO questions about it falling off - my ring was very secure on my finger - and it mostly shielded the mud too. I don't like to ride with gloves in the summer time because they are hot, so I'm really glad I found this product!

I take mine off now because its more comfortable without it. Ive been giving it to my husband to hang on to if I forget to take it off before the ride, but soon I will have a front box to carry my own supplies in.

I dont wear a wedding ring at all. It was a requirement not to wear one or any jewelry when I was working but then it became habit not to wear it. I do wear it when we go out. My wife doesnt wear one either.

Maybe that is why I only got blisters on my left hand? I thought maybe it stopped because i have power steering now but I actually stopped wearing my ring at the same time.

I always wear mine. It does give me blisters. You can tell by my pics that I don't hold onto the bars much anyway. LOL

      Theres a horse farm I work/worked at and they have a Rubicon (500cc)  think its a 04.  Its been having starting issues.  First time it wouldnt start, the owner said it had a new battery in it (this is about a year ago I guess..).  I replaced the solenoid and then the starter.  the battery was dead so I jumped it and then it started fine after the battery charged.  about a month later, same problem.  I swapped the solenoid back out with the old one(still had it)- nothing.  the owner had another battery she said was good, swapped that out and it fired up.  Now, today, same problem again... owner says the starter was sluggish and then the battery went dead.  Went out and jumped it again and it ran fine (its a carburated atv so its not fond of under freezing temperatures...).  the stater is working cause when I got there, the battery had 7-9v on it (multimeter said it was rising and falling (with the key on)).  I jumped it off  our van and rode it around for say 5-10mins.  when I shut it off again, battery is reading 14v with key off and 13v with it on.  thats as far as I've gotten..  I asked the owner to let me know if anything else happened later on..  What I'm wondering is if its just the battery, or maybe is the regulator rectifier not working letting the battery be overcharged cause it to die?  And then again, the bike could have sat with the key and headlight on overnight for all I know..

      I have a 1993 King Quad LT-F4WDXP. I have had to replace the starter 3 times and each time the end of the shaft where the splines are cut in is all worn down. Getting ready to do it again any ideas on how to solve this problem? Is the a starter gear in the crankcase that is worn or broken. It make a grinding sound while cranking after a week or so.

The helmet cracked in half but took the impact off his skull i cant imagine what would of happend to him if he had not worn it and with out the Chest protector he would of had a footpeg through his back. He's still in rough shape (broken arm, broken rib, and a cut liver) but with the gear truely saved his life so guys, They make it for a reason please ware it.
