I know EXACTLY what you are going through.
Probably about 8 years ago i quit street riding all toghter and just did track days / drag racing with my R1. Yes it was the funnest time I have had on 2 wheels. BUT with crashing inevitable, missing the ground pounding feel of a v8, and a prego wife watching my try to break my neck on the track I decided to hang it up.
6 years ago I bought my malibu, 1 day later Samantha was born.
I wanted something we could all enjoy. Something we could take to get a burger and still go to the strip and fly. Something with 4 walls.
I miss riding ALL THE TIME and strangely my car is possibly more dangerous than a bike, but the point is. I am alive, one of my dear friends is not. I literally cry everytime I think of him or his daughters. My kids love the car, and it is radical enough to keep me interested. SHIOT AIN'T CHEAP though I'll tell you that. I have no regrets giving up riding even though it was easily the best time of my life. Goodriddance and I had some really good times on 2 wheels.
My only mistake was building one too silly. Too much converter and compression to be usable at all. Should have went low comp and either way more cubees or forced induction. 13.4:1 and a fogger is not a street friendly plan.
The Devil made me do it the first time. The second time I did it on my own.
