What would you do?

I think i'm jsut venting and hope this dosn't stick

with all these RIP going around and Eric really hit me hard.I find it hard to want to ride with every one of the cagers downing us bikers and telling me to stop riding cuz i'm next.

i think i'm a sell my "lil Blue : Pancha"( thats my R6's name) forreals forreals this time.




I own my own house but am renting it out(more of a investment to build credit and some side profit) and i'm freeloading right now at my parents place and my mother is going in to surgery. she juut finished dowing the motherly thing and chewed out my eyers about riding the bike daily. last time she went in we went in to a coma and chances are high again. i don't want her to be worrying about that during all that.

last time i was goign to sell my bike before the first time she went under the knife but didn't because only got offers from squids that were jsut going to hurt them selfs. i'm not about to self my pride and joy to a newbe.

You'll regret selling it. I did. And i bought the b*tch back about 9 months later even after the chick I sold it to laid it down. It's something that you can't shake..it gets under your skin ... it's an addiction. You'll feign for it, I promise.

Then again maybe you won't. *shrugs* I know plenty of people, mostly in the car scene, that have sold their cars, never to look back, but every now and then, when they hear the growl of an LS1 I see a sparkle in their eye.

It's all up to you - we're behind you no matter what

I feel ya on that, I wanna stop but I keep hearing Roman in the back of my head saying "ride that monkey" so I doubt I will anytime soon. Bottum line...it's dangerous... no matter how u cut it. U take that responsiblilty when u get on or u don't get on. If u can't deal with that, sell it.

Joe,
I've never been without a bike in the 30 years since I started riding, however, I understand your reasons behind it.

In the end, only you can make that decision.

If I can help in any way, please let me know.

like the above poster mentioned, why not consider only riding on the track? It'll satisfy your urge plus give you a more controlled environment to have fun in and learn at the same time.

I can understand the feelings. Ive know a lot of people who died and I guess it just comes with the love. The f*cking things really are a drug..Just like Meth or coke or anything else. We all know, more then likely we'll end up In jail, dead, or worst of all a veggie confined to a chair and eating out of a tube...

And like many addicts, there's the lucky ones who have a 'moment of clarity' and give it up for their family, loved ones, etc, because it really is just too dangerous.

Then there's the rest of us that that are stuck with the addiction for life.

And as far as selling your bike, your parents will always freak out, me and all my friends parents are the same if not worse about getting rid of their bikes. You dont have to ride the streets, plus, i know for a fact you will miss your baby as well as riding it. I say dont sell it and meet up at the track. GL man.

No Mom wants their baby riding a bike (generally speaking) A middle compromise might be in order. Just like everyone else has said, use it for something else besides a daily rider. Become a weekend warrior....
Either way, I don't envy your position
