What'd you tell your mom...?

My mom's alwasy been very protective. more so with my sister than me, but still overall very protective.

When she found out my ex and i broke up, she'd call me everyday to make sure i was okay

anyhow when i mentioned that when i turn 19 i'll be getting my bike license, she freaked the fuck out. so i decided not to get it.

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.

you shoulda been bugging them about it since you were 17, that way when you're 19 they're tired of hearing it haha.

i'd hold off on it, you've only had 3 years driving experience max. that's nothing.

Ride a scooter first on the streets of Vancouver, that will totally change your opinion on whether you want a big CC bike or not. It also helps if you've been a car crash (or two). Those two things really shaped my view of whether or not I REALLY want a bike.

My parents are against it and are still against it. I still want one, I'll probably get one but not when I'm living under their roof.

Oh yeah, and like Ulic said, you need a good amount of driving experience before you should get your hands on a bike. Being a statistic is waaaaaay too easy.

Get more city driving experience under your belt and you will be glad that you did. Riding's all about hazard perception.

I wouldn't ride a 50cc scooter before getting a Class 6 because 1) even though your class 5/7 allows you to legally ride it, you don't have the training to ride on the roads 2) you most likely won't be riding with proper protective gear and 3) the scooter doesn't have enough power to get you out of trouble.

Take a course at PRS and see if riding is something you want to do... and oh, if you are still living under the same roof as your parents, you pretty much have no say if they are against riding.

my mom said absolutely no way i could get a bike....


....so i went and got my licence


then i asked her if she would co-sign a loan and she said no way she would ever do that for a motorcycle....


..... so i went and got aproved on my own and brought a bike home the next day.

i was 20 at the time. she warmed up to the idea after a few weeks. and now 5 years later asks lots of questions and listens to stories and seems to enjoy me riding.

Just came home with one and parked it in the garage next to my moms car.

Talked about it after. LOL.

Same story as RRxtar, parents said no way in hell was I going to ride but I was old enough to go out and get my license and buy a bike without bothering them. After a few months they did warm up to it. I feel 19 is a bit young though, you definitely want more experience on the roads before getting on a bike, there's nothing protecting you from even a minor accident like a car.

well i got it when i was 19.
I guess it depends on how mature u think you will be with the bike
and driving experience is really important as well, u really have to monitor other peoples action a lot more carefully since it can mean death...

Parents had no objections to the idea of getting a bike, so I went out and got one.

My dad was originally against it, but I asked him to take the PRS course with me, and the course changed my dad's mind. PRS teaches you more than just how to ride a bike, stuff like hazard perception and survival skills.

i've been working on my parents ever since i got my 7L
my dad is looking to at getting another bike after 20 years of it being not financially responsible, but now hes retired and is good to go (my mom doesnt mind because his life insurance payout is pretty good ) He's fine with me getting one as long as i take the course (wouldnt consider riding without it anyways). My mom is deadset against it (when i first got the ICBC book on riding she threw it in the fireplace
But i'm 21, and have over 110k km of driving experience under my belt (in a tiny car) so i think i'm ready, and have the cash that i dont need any help from them. My mom still threatens to kick me out if i get a bike though

i dont think years of driving experience or milage driven matters much. it all comes down to the head you have on your shoulders. you have to KNOW whats going on around you before it happens. you have to know whats around the next corner before you see it. you have to know where every car or obstical around you is and what its going to do before even it knows what its going to do. you need the spidey sence. you have to not give in to peer pressure, ever. and you have to know exactly what your ability is, and never ride above 8/10ths of that ability. and to throw in some ninja shit, you have to be one with your motorcycle. you're either born a good rider or not. the course will make you a safer rider, but it wont make you a good rider.


i can almost say i feel more comfortable on my bike than i do walking down the street. 5 years of riding and roughly 40,000kms and no accidents so far.

i totally agree, but i've been driving for about 4 years now, and i think I've smartened up since i first started driving. and i'm ready to ride a bike,

i thought about the scooter thing actually. but why not just pay a little bit more and ride a bike instead? i'd enjoy it much more

even though i'm only planning on getting a zzr250.

i just need to save up for now. i'm thinking 7000 will do.

to add to this. when your riding, you have to have the mindset that everyone is out to kill you. im not meaning intentionally, but thats what you have to think. then ask yourself, how good is your reaction? everything about riding is the ability to react in a split second. you can't think out there, or over analyze, you do that and your in trouble. its all about reflex action. there were a couple instances this summer when i was riding when outta nowhere a car would make a sudden move or do a slow lane change, without warning, 5 feet in front of me. if i was in a car, i would've t-boned them, or drove into a lamp post. being on my bike, i reacted which saved me, moves i never thought i could do.
