My daughter is a lot like me when I was young I guess. She showed up last weekend with a Suzuki 600 something or other that she bought. No motorcycle license, not registered, no insurance. Rode it home from her college about 2.5 hours with her boyfriend leading the way. She saved the money for it. We were still upset with the above legal parts but, strangely proud of her practicing in a parking lot then riding it here. So now it’s insured and road legal. Her and I went for a ride at dusk for about an hour. She does pretty good. I do have mixed feelings still. Proud she wants to ride on her own but she is still my kid and I want her safe.
All the classes in Illinois are full tell August. I am going through the book with her now. Already signed me and both kids for a class too.
Great story I hope I can do similar stuff with my daughter when she is old enough.Cheers,D.
I am the man who rebuilt the V50 together with my daughter. Whilst I understand all the hesitancy and the urge to protect I want to add my thoughts to the matter.Teach her properly, or have her taught properly. Make sure that she understands how the motorcycle works and handles and why.Make sure that she always wears all the gear, all the time and make sure it is the best gear she or you can afford.Teach her that all other road users are homicidal maniacs who want to kill her and teach her how to ride defensively.Teach her to check her tyre pressures at least once per week and preferably more often.Stand back, let her go and have confidence in her ability.This is mine on our recent 1200 kilometre ride around the East Cape of the North Island of New Zealand. I had the pleasure of seeing her get into the groove and almost float through 50km (30 miles) of twisty road. She loved it and so did I. Great fun and she rides much better than I did after two years of riding!
