I hope you own a shotgun to keep the wolves away from the door.

She is definitely an attractive young lady. I hope if she does ride, she rides safely and enjoys motorcycles as much as all we old guys like ours.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

I worry about my kids driving. None of them ride. I don't know what kind of traffic she would be riding in, but I'd almost rather ride in town than dodge the deer.

That time will come soon enough. I am liking the empty nest thing... couldn't afford the new ride any other way :lol: Have you seen the movie 'Failure to Launch'? Two words for you...naked room! I love that part of the movie. "He wanted the dining room but I told him that having a naked room downstairs was problematic..." (snickers)
Really though, I am a rider and I am not fond of having any of my kids ride. They all live in busy cities with all the blind drivers. How hypocritical is that?

Oh I understand... I really don't want her riding either,, Kansas City for the most part has ok drivers but they really enjoy tailgating for some reason...I need to see that movie for sure. :lol: Failure to Launch....A trailer

I don't know man...lol seems a little strange to me.. :lol:

That is what makes it hilarious! The idea is just off center enough to make it funny.
Anywho... If she is going to ride, make sure she gets into a rider class. You can learn otherwise but they really do help.

Once the nest goes empty it is really nice, but you still worry about them. all little bird must fly. Start her out on a small scoot and let her grow from there. If she wants to move up when she is ready you might as well go with it because if you don't you know she will anyway and that is when things will go sideways..

She is a very pretty girl, but I think how I would work it is start with a smaller bike, and do the training yourself. You can start with the basics of defensive driving and work with her on handling in an empty parking lot. Set up some cones to let her do figure 8s as slow as possible without putting her feet down. I have trained each of my children plus several people for their CDL. When done right, the operator has the confidence to handle bad traffic, or whatever else is thrown at them. Plus a driving course after your training would extend the confidence. They have to grow up some day!

Honestly, I think the best way to do it is to start them on a small dirt bike, off-road, so that they develop excellent bike-handling skills BEFORE they have to also deal with traffic issues.
