You need to identify positively her likes/dislikes about riding then cure the problem if possible. Sometimes there just isn't a good solution.

When we first married my wife could care less about motorcycles and riding. I finally said, "I'm going to ride again and bought a 1980 CB900 custom. She went along reluctantly. Then she let me know she didn't like sitting there "by herself". I bought a cheap communication setup and the problem was solved. Now we could talk about the scenery, etc., and she was happy. Next up was our new '97 Wing and now the 1800 trike. 95% of my riding includes her and I don't like riding solo much. She wants to go as fast or slow as I desire (most of the time) and loves riding the twisties with our friends in our club. It's a beautiful thing!

Good luck. Hope you find a solution for both of you.
