least it don't rain and freeze huh?.
Only worthy response so far! Thanks.

Basiclly knew I'd get these types of response's which made me post it. Alot of the people that responded
would'nt see an abush from a mile a way in here, unless they actually had something nice to say.
Thanks for being so predictable guys.

They do tend to put a damper on riding don't they?..

I had to sell my K100RS and my R100RT for money for a house when my kids were born, I spent most the 90's riding a well used V65 Sabre and a beat to death ZX1000R just to keep my knees in the breeze.

Good man, that was just a test! Good luck selling it, I'm kinda in the same boat with the cage and I know the feeling of needing to get rid of a piece of heavy equipment. Luckily, I'm not saddled with the kids (none that I know of anyway....snicker).

Yes, they sure do. It's well worth it though,seeing's it'll probably be my last one. He's not old enough to be a goth yet, give it time though?

I'll actually question that rider when they come into my shop, most get offended. I rather they get offended though, than get hurt. Maybe they will think about what I said, and wear the dame thing on their head, instead of on the helmet lock while their riding.

How about you question why they would ride a motorcycle in the first place when a car is so much safer. If it's really about safety, don't ride a motorcycle,drive a car.

Well generally they take offense no matter how I word it.
I just hope they are wearing it at the time of the accident. Two kinds of riders ya know.

My kid was riding around the neighborhood as soon as he was big enough to grip the tank bra (he sat in front of me). Now he loves riding if it isn't more than an hour or two. Especially to school...all the little girls giggle and wave when he's pulling off his helment and goggles. It's a hoot!
