+1 on the wife! I didn't even START riding until I had some kids. I do ride very cautiously because of them, but it's also because of them that I do ride.

+11tybillion to Mellowmoon!

I got my bike just in September after being without one for quite some time.
My daughter is 5 now & soon will be six ,so most of my riding is to work & Saturday road rides before my wife leaves for work.
Sunday is a choice ,since I am a Texan Fan.
Looking forward to the summer \ spring rides.
I went from sport bikes to Cruiser now, so yes, my riding stlye has changed somewhat.
After each ride, I like to make it home in one piece.

I rode before I had a child and I want my daughter to enjoy it too, so I won't quit cause I have a child. She will be six in January and is getting her gear for christmas so she can start riding her bike. I am addicted to my bikes and without them I can be as moody as a smoker giving up the habit after years of chain smokin. And if I ever get married well, the bike is still gonna be there and I will still ride as often as I can and want. But that doesnt look like it will be a problem,LOL.

Why would you stop riding when you have kids? You could be killed in a car accident, a boat accident, fall down the stairs, or you could die of a fkng aneurysm in your sleep. Make sure your loved ones know how much you love them every single day, and spend less time worrying about things you have no control over. Everyone dies, not everyone lives. Enjoy the ride! BTW, my kids like me better when I ride. It's my therapy!

When we had our first the wife and I agreed that I should give up riding due to the risks....that lasted for about a year. Just can't kick the habit. I still ride as often as possible, but with a family, a full time job, and no daycare, that time is very little. I only have 2900 miles on my new bike I bought in March. I used to average 20k+ a year. I'll be lucky to hit 4k by march.

i would bet that the ratio of bikes riding to wrecks is the same as cars driving to wrecks. there are just way more cars.

ok then look at the skill level and the kinda people who wreck their bikes. if you are responsible enough to worry and question your riding habits for your family then i doubt you are riding crazy now.
