Take a riding class, both of you---help enjoy it again.
Seriously, not being a jerk. If you can get your wife and yourself to take at least a beginners course, one or two days you could feel safer possibly. You have a large investment in the bike. Course is usually around $250 to $300. You ride their small bikes. It could help you decide if you want to give it another go or get rid of it. Just think if you go ahead and sell it, then in a few months you get the itch again to ride, it is going to cost much more for another bike. It might be worth the gamble for the course, it would be cheaper than a trip to Vegas(maybe). ................PS I think most who ride have had a close call before or more than one. I have been riding on the street since 1978, I have had a few close calls, but I still enjoy riding. Lots of good people to meet, lots of great places to see. ........At least go to a AMA class and sit in on a class, you may just be glad you did. Also think of this lots of people dream of getting a bike one day(they dream of it, never do it!). You followed through and got the bike. NOT trying to tick you off, just think about it. A little schooling can be a good thing.
