My mom is totally against it, so I knew I couldn't get a bike while living in their house. I got married last summer and moved out and finally could begin to consider getting a bike...except my wife wouldn't let me either. Before we got married, she was like "oh yeah, you can get it if you want". As soon as we got married, she was like "no bike, I don't want you to die and leave me alone with the mortgage". Anyways, after a lof of convincing, she compromised but only allowed me to get a 250 cc bike to start, which I guess is probably a good idea anyways

Full gears will not save you from nasty accident. Check out bcsportbikes. There was a father with full leather gear die at s2s in a nasty accident 3 years ago.
It reduces the physical pain, but when it's too server, you still die.

The best way to protect you from nasty accident is to ride with caution and always foresee any possible incidences on the road.

ride carefully everyone.

My mom told me I couldn't live with at home if I got a motorcycle. So I got my license, took training, bought a sportbike and left it at my friend's house.

The first day I rode up on my bike to my mother's house she looked at it, she looked at me, she shook her head and said "You're just like your father..."

My mom and my dad were against it. So I just said its my friends bike and I'm thinking about buying it, just doing a test ride. And that test ride lasted 3 years until one day my dad asked, "You know you should wait till you buy the bike before you start putting an exhaust on it?"

"Um yeah about that..."

After that I told them and their reaction was, "Don't want to hear about it or see it, just don't die."
