Re: Have you run into this?
I did get out of motorcycling for almost 20 years once we started having kids. It was probably more a money decision than a safety one, but safety was certainly a part of it too. There is no question that motorcycling involves a certain amount of risk, and my top priority has been (and continues to be) to be there for my kids. It tempers my potential lunacy on the bike (somewhat) to this day.
However, once our boys were 12 and 14, I bought the three of us motorcycles, to expose them to the joy of riding, and to teach them how to do it safely. My wife was never crazy about the idea, but she knows and trusts my commitment to their safety. I took my younger son to STAR school earlier this year, after he decided to buy an R6. I think motorcycling is awesome, but it has to be done with respect for the inherent danger.
