I’m 34 and I was surprised that my mother had no problems with the bike whatsoever. She had a brother who rode all his life and worked on them for a living. My wife has been a different matter. She was all supportive until I passed the MSF and then reality set in. I don’t have a bike yet but she calls it the death trap. She’s kind of joking on that since she has said she doesn’t feel really strong about it either way. She has told me that I will be upping my life insurance though. Nothing like mixed messages.
