Setting a good example & teaching them is good.
Trying to discourage them won't get you too far.
i agree with you man.

I catch from my dad all of the time about riding. I pretty much only ride on the track anymore but about a month ago I crashed and broke my collarbone, and man did I catch for it. Every time I am over there he makes some kind of smart comment or snide remark about my riding and I'm freaking 28 years old, so I guess the protectiveness never goes away. It does strain the relationship though, I don't want to go over there as much and 1 less thing that I really enjoy that I can't BS with him about.

I don't blame you. You realize how many cars are on the road right now in Houston? There will be twice as many in 20 years from now unless they are flying by then :P

My dad forbid me to ride on the street. After he bought his cruiser 2 weeks ago, his entire attitude has changed. Now he's like "When are you getting a bike so we can go riding?"

i agree with you man.

Mine turned 16 and we got him a 2007 GSXR600 for his 16th B-DAY. He rode and raced motocross since he was 7. He is resposible, I ride with him allot and he rides allot better than most grown adults. He knows where to ride in a lane, knows to give the distance where he can be seen, does not act like a fvcking moron. He knows right from wrong and I dont mind him riding at all. Now, do I worry? yes, im a parent. Can I make him stop riding? Nope. I think if you bring them up and teach them to be responsible and to ride defensivley it makes a world of difference. Just my .2

Not a better feeling in the world when my son and i hit the back roads, play around, grab lunch and spend the day together. MAkes for a beautiful day

My dad's rule was "You are old enough to have a motorcycle, when you're old enough to live on your own."

He showed me how to ride it properly, pounded the wearing gear idea inside my head, and now I'm thankful because it makes me a more responsible rider.

If you ban them from it, they will want to do it MORE!

I totally understand how you feel!

Here is my crazy take on this subject...

My Mom has no idea I ride, & I'm in my 40's!

Reason being, is because my Step-Dad got killed on a motorcycle, about 15 yrs. ago! It crushed her emotionally. She made me promise her that I would stay off of bikes, because she could not handle me getting hurt, much less killed on one.
I have been riding since my teens, so it was hard to stay away from them. I have had 2 bikes since his accident, but because I love my Mom so much, she will never find out! (She lives out of town) When she does come into town, I hide the bike, gear, pictures off the wall etc. Why have her worrying, for no reason is the way I see it.
It's just something that I have to do...because of the love & respect for my Mom...& for riding!
Don't take life so's not permanent!!

I know its hard, i have a little girl that i want her to be future moto gp champ but i just worry about when she does ride the people around her. The only thing you can do is hope for the best and to get home safe and sound just like we all do when we leave on our bikes.
always looking for a good curve
