I WANT a bike too... but i am too scare to take the writen test... and my friend said girls shouldnt ride because we would be kicking guys a$$ on the street... ^o^ sorry its off topic....

but i think once you turn 19 your parents shouldnt chain you to their ways of thinking... i mean have you ever been doing reckless driving or have the needs to speed?? if you do then i advice you not to get it yet cause it might put you in harms way or put others in harms way...

My older brother got a bike before i did but never told parents till recently. (had it parked at cousins garage with his bike)
I got my bike and told my parents it was my friends.(parked it in the garage)

Parents didn't like the idea and still don't like it, but they can't do anything about it. What i regret most of all is the lie about it being my friends bike.

Parents just want you to be safe, they'll yell and freak, but they won't kick you out of the house or disown you. lol

1. Go to riding school
2. Drive a car before a bike with several years experience bellow your belt
3. Don't cheap out on gear

i don't think that driving experience has THAT much to do with riding a motorcycle. it does and it doesn't. i got my bike last year when i was 16. 600cc, and sprocketed. i think its more about the person who rides the bike, sure it helps to have seen many different situations for driving, but i find that you are much much more aware of your surroundings on a bike, simply because you're just out there on your own, not in a cage. take the course, you can pretty much tell which people are not meant to be riding motorcycles from that. theres always the people who stand out from the class who just get things easier and are more fluent than the rest.

anyways, my dad was ok with it, my mom wasn't too stoked. now a season of riding later, zero drops or accidents, and no close calls (knock on wood), i love riding and i won't give it up.

but i want it next year, anyone have any luck convincing their parents? just want to hear some stories, not really looking for advice since i doubt i can change her mind, i'll just do it anyways.

I am just going to secretly take the bike license, go through PRS then just come home with a bike and deal with it after. Since i'll be purchasing it with my money they can't do shit to it and forbid me from riding it.

^Sounds like you are living at home so they have every right to deny you. Break it in, baby steps, they'll keep saying 'no' but at least you are keeping them up to date. You don't want to ride feeling guilty do you? That's going to get you hurt (knock on wood). Try riding with emotions, it's not easy, you get sloppy...

Why don't u try breaking it down to them in baby steps. Let them know you are getting your license, going to a proper school, wearing the right gear and after all that is done you'll base your decision if bike is for you (even though you know u are 100% getting one).

In the end it's still your money so just my $0.02 and welcome future rider.

lol since when was getting a bike gangster?

if i wanted to be a wannabe gangster i'd buy the damn bike and tell my parents to fuck off, but unfortunately i still respect my parents opinions and don't piss them right off.

i don't think you can get it if you're under 19 and your parents don't know.
