Yeah...put your life on hold for 18 more years. Do not pass Go, do not have any more fun :/: Hopefully by the time they graduate your body will still be in good working condition so that you will be able to pick back up on the fun you once had...


Sorry, but that's the way I see it.

Sorry, but that's the way I see it.

I see how you could take it that way...if your motorcycle is the only thing you do in life that you enjoy. If it is, I pity you. My father was an avid sportbike rider but he had 3 kids and his last 2 bikes happened to get stolen just after my brother was born so he decided to wait until we graduated high school to get another bike. When I turned 9 I got my first dirt bike and he got one to ride with me, for the next 9 years we rode motocross tracks and hardcore trails together, did a ton of offshore game fishing on our boat, and took many hunting trips. Now, my brother, my father and I all love riding sport bikes and we often ride together. If you ask my Dad if he made the right decision I have a feeling his answer would be without hesitation.

if he got a bike to ride dirt with you when you were nine, he didn't wait until you graduated did he.

If you keep your bike just remember there has to be a balance. Family time is more important. Also there will be times when you want to get away, but you have to remember there are times that she will want to get away also.

It's a little easier when they are older. Mine are 12 and 10 and are starting to be mature enough that they can stay at home by themselves for short times. Life is about sacrifice. It just depends on how much you want to sacrifice and why. There are ways to work things out, you just have to look for a reasonable solution. You may not be able to ride as much but you will still be able to ride.

Maybe you just didn't feel like reading the first page, or maybe you just missed it. If you look at what I was saying before was that dirt is a good alternative to street for when you have kids. Anything else

I think there should be a balance 3-ways: self time, couple time, and family time. Anything else...and someone is going to feel cheated.

There must be some way to keep your sense-of-self strong, the love (and hot monkey ) with your 1/2, and the responsibility of parenthood.


Good luck!

Okay, a little story about fearing life:

What's more dangerous? Playing in the backyard, or playing in street? YOU might all say playing in the street is more dangerous, but MY DAUGHTER was SERIOUSLY injured playing in the backyard. She nearly lost her left leg from the knee down. Would you keep your kids from playing in your yard, because they might lose a leg? You can't live like that. Depending on whether or not you're a believer, you're going to go when it's your time - HOW you go is not determined.

I'm not against you selling your bike, but don't do it because it's dangerous. Do it because you don't want to ride anymore.
