Well at least to my knowledge.. Okay so I bought a bike a couple months ago... and its the best thing i've ever done. Riding is soooo relaxing and a complete stress relief. When I'm on it... I'm in my own, care-free world. Problems is my family preaches against bikes. So i kinda had to buy it behind their backs (i'm 22 BTW... still living at home). My dad found out when the title came to my house.... but my mom still doesn't know. My dad was "okay" with it as he knows I'm a pretty responsible guy. My mom on the other hand freaked out and started trippin on me for simply taking the MSF course (motorcycle safety course). None of my other family members know about the bike... except for cousins. Well... yesterday my cousin whom I haven't seen in a couple of years, got into a bike accident and is pretty much in a near-full body cast. He had to have a few fingers amputated and some other severe damage. I don't know the exact cause of the accident... but the bottom line is that it happened. Now my dad is completely against me having a bike and I'm not quite sure how to deal with this. I fully understand and comprehend the dangers of riding a bike... and its a risk I'm willing to accept. I can get into my whole philosophy of "you only live once" here but it would be off-topic... I'm just worried that this bike will get inbetween me and the parents... I don't want to sell it... and if they somehow forced me to... I would probably get depressed. SOmething I really don't want to experience again (I've had enough of that when my dad had cancer). I would have thought that my dad, of all people, would understand that life's too short to NOT do the things you want. But I dunno... What do you guys think?
