Did your parents ride?

If your parents rode motorcycles what is the thing they taught you about riding that most sticks out in your mind? I have a seven year old.

I have to tell you that, as a father and husband, I almost made that same mistake but, I'm grateful to God that I didn't.

My dad had and old Honda from back in the day. Remember the "you meet the nicest people on a Honda" slogans? Yeah, back then. I didnt learn anything about riding a bike from him since he passed away almost two years ago. My family is upset at me for buying a bike after my cousin lost his leg in a bike accedent, although once my mom saw my bike, she told me how much she loved having one before she had me. She even asked if I would give her a ride on it.

Dad rode,

biggest thing that sticks in my mind he taught me was he'd shove his foot soooooo far up my [email protected]# if I ever bought a bike.

well His bike was gone before I was old enough to know what was going on. His friends told us stories about how he could crank wheelies for miles on his Suzuki GS. The first time I saw him ride was when I brought my bike home and figured out it was just a threat. You should've seen the smile on his face when he took my FZ600 around the block.

my parents were gang bangers. not motorcyclist.

but alas i always get the "your gunna shoot your eye out" speach.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

My father has never ridden a motorcycle. Closest he ever got to riding one was sitting on my '93 shortly after I'd bought her. I used to borrow his garage and toolbox for all my oil changes and "tinkering"... he never said much but I know he thought it was cool. Now that he's in Tennessee, I still ride down to visit - came down on my Gixxer once (500 miles in 6 hours) - the roads down there were MADE for sportbikes but in three days I only saw one other. Real redneck Harley country down there.

Before I really knew her, Mom used to date a guy with a Triumph, but that ended when I was 5 or so. After my divorce, I took a solo trip to her house in Delaware via the Blue Ridge Parkway. When my stepdad heard of what I was planning, he was full of "you'll kill yourself on that darn thing" etc. etc. (he was a wild man on a motorcycle back in his salad days). "Those things are dangerous!". Morning after I arrived, I went downstairs for a cup of coffee and caught him in the carport with the bike. "Oh, I was just checking for oil leaks on my driveway" he said. Well, later that day he was taking all the neighbor kids for rides... rode it to work... I had to practically pry him out of the saddle so I could go home!

Fast-forward 3 years... I called my Mom to tell her that I'd ordered a brand-new '93 Heritage Softail... she said "That's neat! By the way, I'm getting my motorcycle license!". Two months later, when I called to tell her that I'd picked up my bike, she said "That's neat! I just bought a brand-new 750 Virago!"! Thus started the tradition of meeting in Pennsylvania. First time, she met me in Gettysburg... then each trip she would come a little further west until we were meeting up on the east side of Pittsburgh.

On Labor Day weekend in 1995 we were cruising the backroads in northern Maryland when she lost it going through an off-camber left hand turn. She shattered her kneecap and lost her front teeth... got to take a helicopter ride to Baltimore while I had the task of telling my stepdad what had happened. She was in ICU, all full of tubes and drugs and stuff... and all she could think about was whether her bike would be okay. Well, it was totalled - but she took the money and bought herself a Vulcan. Now she and my stepdad have a brand-new Gold Wing and have taken over where I left off on touring. They're heading up to Minneapolis after Memorial Day - there's a good chance they'll be able to make Blackhawk on the 31st to see me race!

My grandpa raced stockcars and rode bikes. My dad had a 1979 XL 350, and as soon as i could touch my feet to the ground, I had a 1979 XL 75 that was my uncles. My mom rode her brothers dirtbike all the time. I have always had bikes around me and the one thing pounded into my head since i was old enough to want to be on a bike was: NEVER EVER EVEN GET ON A BIKE WITHOUT A HELMET!

I never do. Now my folks ride Harleys and never wear helmets. Go figure. Actually, my mom always wears a helmet on her bike.

Dad took me for my first ride when I was 4 or 5, mom stood in the driveway and took pictures as we made a few passes, me sitting next to the tank waving, the old man driving. Still have them somewhere. I guess that was my first attempt at stunting. The no-footed one hander.

My dad rode, until some ass hole blew a stop sign and knocked him off the face of the earth. He used to always tell me it's not you, it's the other asshole. Then he fell victum to it. He used to also tell to watch out for the pee gravel on corners, its slippery.

Grandpa rode Indians and Harleys back in the 40's....tried to keep my dad away from bikes. That didn't work, Dad raced enduro, flattrack and mx in the 60's and has had a streetbike since I can remember.

Respect the bike, it can ALWAYS teach you a new trick.

My dad had this hair brained idea to buy a honda back in 1989 or something. He didn't have enough $$ so he asked me to front him $1100.

My Brother, my Dad, and myself took the Motorcycle Safety class and only I passed but my pa took the test at the DMV and passed so no big loss.

He crashed the honda in 91, broke his leg, and then turned around and sold it for more than he paid.

We both got out of biking for a few years then I told him I was going to buy a Harley and he went to the dealer with me and we both walked out with brand new bikes.

I since sold the Harley (POS) and go on rides with my Dad all the time.

Blah, Blah, Blah

My Dad was the one that showed me how to ride on a lil moped he borrowed first, and then an old Yam RX100. He loves bikes and does not have one right now, but I hope to have him riding again by next year. He tought me lots of things about life but the one that is most important and applies to bike is respect. You have to respect the bike, respect the road, respect your skills and those of others. I think almost everything in life can be related on some leve to respect.

Kim,

With the exception of the injuries to your mom in her crash, I'd say you're pretty close to a dream relationship with your parents. At least from the perspective of a motorcycle fan like myself.

Moto(Sean),

Both my folks rode at one time. I never had the chance to see it. My dad did buy a go kart for my brothers and I but, he wouldn't let me race. Now he kind of wishes he would have.

I thought Kim was the only one with the dream parental relationship. Good thing you got in on the same deal.

yeah, my dad used to ride, but it wasn't for fun like we do. he used to ride because it was his method of transportation. see, before in india, bikes, motorcycles and scooters were the main mode of transportation. obviously things are different now, every idiot has a car, but during his time, he owned a motorcycle and thats how he got around. after he moved here, he didn't ride. i started riding dirt with some friends, and then decided to move to the street. he'll take my bike out every once in awhile....but its been a really long time now since he has. even when he did take it out, it would be very VERY local. the one thing he taught me is that never crank the throttle too hard, or else the front end will come up!

Guatam,

You mean having the front wheel come up is a bad thing?

I use my bike for transport anywhere from ten to eleven months per year. Living in Ohio that gets tough but, its rarely dull.

Speaking of bikes in India, a good friend of mine used to ride when she lived there. She always teases me that she can still ride but, like I told her "you might still be a good rider, just not on my bike".

Back way when, my mom rode a huge old Czech bike that when she dropped she couldn't pick up and needed help. So when I was learning on my 250, she was yelling at me telling me that I was too "ROUGH" on the cluth.

Meg,

There's a woman that wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle. She asked a guy who had one to teach her to ride. He said he would only let her ride if she could pick the bike up when it fell. She didn't learn to ride for twenty years after that incident. Now she goes around the country teaching women how to pick up fallen bikes.
