I guess it should have been for 'parents' of riders. Whoops!

Glad you still show him who's boss out on the track!

may I take 'slight' exception to the thread title? I am the mum of an R1 rider and I taught him to ride and sold/gave him my zx6r a few years ago. He went pillion with me from the age of 6 to 17.

We go riding together. He is my only child (grown up-ish now at 27) and has (touch wood) never had a bike accident in 10 years. He is a superb rider and round his local roads leaves me (though I can beat him on the track.... )

I decided on the first day he went out on the road on his own bike that not thinking about the possibilities was the only way I could survive him riding. I took the day off work that day and followed him all round our city, in the pouring rain, to see he was OK. I was right....he has been fine. He has actually had all his traffic accidents in a car, with so called friends egging him on. He rides his bike solo, no pillion (she won't go on it). Go figure, as you americans say!

moral. Go with the flow. I have never been hurt on the road, so why should he? Only way to cope, IMHO.

Re: Question For Dads of Riders

my daughter wants a scooter to go to work on but rightly or wrongly i have said no because she cant even walk on the pavement properly yet
but seriously my parents did not want me to have a road bike but after 5 years of motox i persuaded them to allow it and then 3 weeks later i hit a car at 70mph so maybe they were right?
however i got another and another and here i am with a blade and guess what? im 35 years old and they still think i should get rid of it
go figure eh??

Re: Question For Dads of Riders

BWhip,
Here is the best piece of information that my Dad ever gave me.

'Just when you think you have everything under control, that is when you will find out how out of control everything really is...'

As a teen on my dirt bike I *thought*, 'yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah....' Are you finished yet' Nothing really disrespectful, just the standard teen attitude.

Well when his TT500 didn't quite make the gap on the double I had cleared 100 times before on my YZ490 as well as his 500, I found out first hand how right he was and still is....

That incident brings back another good piece of advice.

'Always *buckle* your helmet. On isn't enough!'

When I cased the jump, I tagged the bars and the helmet popped off like a cork from a bottle of champagne. The TT then made short work of my forehead and orbital regions as it ground my head into the dirt like a jackhammer.
