Holy Cow you have a lot of kids!

Here's the solution ... buy them all dirt bikes and make it a family outing.

Sounds to me like you know what you want already. However I'm gonna agree with Cali if your not comftorable over 55MPH then thats your limit, the idea is to enjoy the ride right?

Besides while your busy bricks about doing 70mph, your much less likely to notice the soccer mom in a mini van about to run you down.

Final note, when ya'll get more comfortable riding, join the forest ride folks. I can't tell ya how much I learned cruising with them.

If you can't leave kids those ages home alone without trusting them, its your fault as parents. Mine are 11 and 13 and stay home alone whenever I want to ride. My guy just started riding this past summer, and we ride together whenever we can. It's a great way to spend time together without the kids.

If you CAN'T leave them alone, because she won't let you, then you have other issues you need to deal with. Shut your mouth, let her ride and have her sammich waiting when she gets home.

Yes, and she already said she was asking for your class specifically. But this time, I wont be riding on the bike next to her or keeping her, lets just say "under control".

No the way to stay married is to say, "Yes Dear" while inside your saying NO. I personally think she should have equal time, including making up for time right now that she isn't getting to ride because of her accident. It is something that we are going to be doing together, but not all the time. I was just trying to get out from inside my head my thoughts and see how they bounced off other people.

As for the kids situation, 4 of 5 can be left for days and care for themselves, pickup after themselves, and do everything else including cooking. The Youngest one, my stepdaughter is the one I worry about, since she has shown signs of issues with authority, being told what to do, and has fits and thats just with myself and her mother. It can be some pretty bad stuff sometimes. Other times, there are no issues. And since we ride with cell phones, we could make an easy U-turn and come home if needed because she decided its fit time. But you are making points that I am hearing and helps formulate my opinions, before I open my mouth and "LAY DOWN the MAN LAW." as some poster said.

Remember - Challen has meet my wife, is slightly scared of her, and she was willing to sit through Hours of me finishing the Saturday portion of the class with her wrist completely crushed. She went to surgery and have 2 plates put in with 6 screws, and didn't take any pain meds after the surgery and was at work the next day after surgery. My wife is TOUGH.

As for this Speed thing that everyone seems to be focused on, your missing the point - I am riding within my own comfort level on my own motorcycle. You want to post videos of going 150MPH go for it. I am riding because its in my heart, its in my soul and its in my mind. Anyone want to laugh because right now that limits 45, laugh all you want. I am doing what I want and enjoy.

I can't believe what I'm hearing. "The only way to stay married is to say yes dear". Alright single guys this is the best advice you can ever get. You have to start off on the right foot by setting boundaries at the BEGINNING OF THE RELATIONSHIP, and occasionally reinforce them because they will be tested. Otherwise you will wind up in this situation. It's like with children, you can't just decide to START disciplining them at age 10. By that time they are already drowning cats and keying the neighbors car. LOL.

Brandon, your absolutely right; however, this is not my daughter, this is my step daughter we are talking about here. I have only know her 1 year at Christmas, she lives with her dad which he has no boundaries and no rules. You ever have to deal with a blended family where two children have one set of parents and 3 have another, including an extra dad in the middle? She is like a drowning cat, but she deserves a chance, just its the concern of the time spent with my with away from her, since we are in the middle of a nasty custody fight because he cant stay out of jail. Thus, the whole conundrum of trying to work out things in my head about the situation and how I feel I should deal with it.

I knew when I married her on 4/4/09 that I was taking on some awfully big responsibilities including 3 more kids, and issues with this particular father. I knew some of what had happened in her past, but like Sun Zu said, live with a man for 40 years day and night and you still wont know him. Torture him for 40 seconds and you will meet the real man.

And Marriage is about compromise and communications, so get use to a lonely walk down a road that is going to be very familiar. "Yes Dear" isn't a coppout, its about restarting communications which obviously at that point have already broken. but then again, I did invite you into a very private thought and asked for your opinion, without you knowing too much about it. You might find if you stop talking and start listening, some good advice about life has already been given.


Too bad I like Casey Jones, trouble with you is the trouble with me, got two good eyes and we still cant see, switch man sleeping train 102 is on the wrong track and headed for you.

Bwaaaaahahahaaaahahahaha! We now know who wears the pants in this family! And I'm going to go one further and say she lets him wear pants, too - she just picks the style and color!

You GO, GIRL! You're my kind of woman!!

I wasn't talking about your children when I commenting about late discipline, I was simply using it as a metaphor (or is it a simile..LOL) about setting boundaries late in a relationship. But you are right, it is difficult to discipline them when they have two homes.

Dude, I am completely color blind, black / white / grey only. For years, I thought our black and white tv was a color tv, no joking. So yeah if she doesnt pick the colors, I look funny if allowed to dress myself.
