    My dad told me the story about how one of his best friends was killed the week he bought a motorcycle when they were 18 years old. That did it for me, and I realized that safety is more important than performance.

    my mom thinks that they are fun. She still doesn't like the idea of me having one but she knows that i know how to ride. Also go look at gear and show them how protective it is. It can be safe but that depends on the rider.

    If you are paying for it then just buy one and take it home. They most likely won't kick you out for doing it. Just take a course an buy good gear.

    Everyone knows somebody who has crashed etc. But does that mean your going to as well?


    Both my parents ride as well, so they support riding as long as saftey is the first priority

    ya.. i guess if your parents ride or have rode before they know how it is.. but if your parents haven't rode.. then all the see and hear is the stories

    my parents just said "The best way for you to learn is from experience." and gave me the thumbs up when I got my bike.. i think they trust that I won't go squid style so they didn't mind, and if I break some bones, well that's my own dam fault

    It's probably closer to 1 in 1.. There are two types of motorcyclists:
    1: those who have crashed
    2: those that are going to crash.

    It just happens. And yes, I'm willing to take that risk. Living life in fear of what might happen is not living.
    (and I'm DEFINATELY in the first category)

    ahha, just like a minute ago i was thinking about posting a topic called ' persuading your parents to get a bike', lol, but i found this one ..lol...i want to get a bike, even though i know that when you crash, your risking your life, i would buy everything by meseflf, and classes, gas and insurance, so are there any good ways / info that could possible persuade my parents into saying yes? , thanx alot
