My bro wants a moto....

So when i started riding, my brother was still in 9th grade. I tried getting him to learn on our neighbors dirtbike, but he was too scared.

And then when I got my 125cc pitbike, he was in 10th grade, and still too scared to learn. Now that he's a freshman in college, he wants me to take my gixx over to my parents house to teach him, which i promptly said no....learn on the dirtbike first.

I kinda got this weird nervousness my parents must have gotten when I first got my bike.

I'm gonnna make him take the MSF and all that....but now I feel this weird sense of over protectiveness toward him, like he shouldnt be putting himself in that situation.....I guess its just me being a big brother.

while my bro's taking it...i really should make my dad take it too. cause we were originally supposed to share the ninja500 that he bought, since we both had commutes to UH and downtown. but he got sick and skipped out on the class.

what i want to do is give back to him and buy HIM a bike for his bday in the coming months.

99.999% of the time my dad wears the pants in the family, but when we bought the first bike, we waited till she was on a business trip.

Better to ask for forgiveness, than to ask for permission. i smiled when he told me that..

Haha, I'm in the same boat...I pulled the "Do as I say, not as I do" to my brother.

Even more of a tease since I'm making him cornerwork for my free track time. :-)

I had the same thoughts when the wife decided she wanted to learn to ride and get a bike. Look at it this way; you have the chance to teach them some hopefully good habits and attitudes, rather than saying "no, way"! And then having them go off to learn on their own.

I have different thoughts about taking the MSF without any riding knowledge at all. I taught the SO the basics in the driveway and a parking lot on her Ninja, and she enjoyed the MSF so much more because she already had the basics under her belt, rather than having to learn where everything was and how to coordinate. Plus she already drives a stick shift car, so she knew how the clutch let out and sync was supposed to go.

If you want any help or pointers, let me know, I have done it more than once and it takes much patience weed hopper!

Ohh, but on the topic,
Just try to guide your brother in the right direction or offer some alternatives if you honestly think it's a bad idea for him. The more I tried to talk my bro out of getting a bike, the more he wanted one. You know, forbidden doughnut type thing. Thats about all you can do.
