    A former roommate bought a two door sports car. The elders at his hall bow beat him into trading it back in for a 4 door sedan and he lost thousands over the deal.

    A female JW had collected cars and owns several collectible hot rods. The elder in her hall were trying to pressure her to sell them. She told them to piss off!

    I used to ride when I was a ministerial servant. It did often spark conversation as it was not common, and I dare say some thought it wrong, but they never said so.

    Always had one. No one ever had the nerve or balls to say anything to me, at least to my face.

    Very common in my area. Dirt bikes mainly but some road bikes also.

    They don't seem to mind, in the UK. Cannot speak for all congs of course.

    One MS had a large bike. He has been made an elder now. Incidentally a former C.O rold me he drooled after Honda Goldwing. Said he would unwind by polishing and cleaning it and take it out for a spin on Mondays ( their free day) wishful thinking I guess.

    and what of a young couple going out on a mc. where would the escort sit? and all that vibration?

    I recall a talk being given of the dangers of 'motor-cross' dirt racing as if you were killed you would be blood guilty..special imported overseer type to deliver this one.

    Here in the UK I don't think it is a problem. I have ridden bikes all my life and nobody has ever made any comment about it. I know quite a few JW's who ride, including pioneers. We always went to Edinburgh assembly on the bike when we were young.

    An elder in my previous congregation rode a Hyabusa so he was hardly in a position to comment on the dangers of two wheelers!

    Selling your motorcycle was one of the suggestions given in an assembly talk as a means of putting the kingdom first rather than yourself. I just thought, "Leave my Harley out of it. One toy. I have one toy."

    Now I realize that it's better to not go to assemblies!
