Do you wear your ring?

Recommended Posts

When I ride I use to wear my ring but not anymore for 3 different reasons:

#1 - After 18 years of marriage taking my ring off is no biggie :cute:

#2 - The blister/calloused hand I get from riding really hurts

#3 - I always end up damaging/bending the ring if I ride long enough.

I usually ride with my wedding set on but did have a bad experience. I had gloves on and I guess when I pulled the glove off, it jerked my $1,000 diamond out of my ring. I of course didn't notice this had happened for a while. So it cost a chucn of change to replace it. So ladies, just be extra careful. Now I usually just don't wear gloves when I ride.

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 never wear mine riding. You only get one chance to lose it but an infinite number of chances to take it off ;)

I am not married yet (no duh 😂 I'm 15).  If I got married, I wouldnt want anything fancy-  probably just a band...  wouldn't take it off for anything probably simply cause I would forget that it was there lol

I can't wear one as an electrician. But I do wear mine all time. Even riding. I only take mine off to shower cause who likes soap in their ring. My wife on the other hand, doesn't wear hers because she is a paramedic.

I never word a ring when I was a mechanic, but I now wear a silicone ring all the time except on special occasions and then I put my good one on.

At one of the car dealerships I worked at a young guy got married. When he came into the shop after the honeymoon, he had on a gorgeous ring.  I told him to remove it for safety reasons, but he said "I will never take if off because it is a token of the commitment to my wife".  To make a long story short, before the week was out he accidentally grounded a wrench (which was touching his ring) between the terminals of a battery and destroyed the ring and give himself a third degree burn. 

I had a neighbor farmer who pulled the end off his finger when getting his rind caught on a through bolt on the bed of a grain truck when he jumped off the  side.

Ladies and Gentlemen, your spouse would rather you not wear the ring doing certain things than you having no finger to put it on.

I would suggest to the ladies to leave their engagement rings at home when  out riding . As others have mentioned  it's too easy  to lose the  stone(s) out  of engagement rings,whether you wear gloves or not. Nobody in their right mind wears  rings in the mechanical  and electrical  trades while on the  job , and nobody should wear them  when  doing anything recreationally where there is a  chance of snagging or shorting out their  ring. It's far too easy to end up  with no ring......or finger.

By all  means ,  wear your  rings  socially  but  leave them  home when  out riding or camping.

      Hey I just recently bought a 2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 when you shift it jumps a lot and while it’s riding it it’s jumping as well but won’t stay started when you let off the gas Could somebody tell me what could possibly be the problem? Thank you

      Long story short, I purchased an 86 or 87  ( the last year made) 250sx aTC about 5 years ago.  It was in pretty good original condition.  A friend helped me clean the tank, carb etc and it started right up.  I drove it around a few times and that was about that.  It is located in Northern California at a friend’s place and I reside in southern Ca about 500 miles away. 
      I’m debating going up and retrieving it but I kind of have too many projects to really enjoy it.  My rebuild on my 64 Land Rover is gonna tank space and priority.
      i was wondering approx value of it as well as if it’s worth transporting down to Southern Ca for a larger market/better price?? If I remember correctly, everything is in pretty good shape, may need new toilets soon. 
      thoughts ?  I appreciate the input.

      Hi everybody!
      Just got an 86 TRX 250, not running for past 5 years.
      Currently with battery hooked up there no power. I checked the fuses. Will go meter the off/run/off switch and ignition switch tonight.
      I'm, looking for a decent wiring diagram or a copy of the service manual or ohm specs for coils/stators. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks.

      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.
