Then why this thread about cars often are about to kill you?
It isn't, it's about reminding people to look twice.
Yes, the most important part. In my opinion. Less fun for the child who loses his/her mother, though.
Also, not fun for the driver who runs over a biker.
Hence look twice
Yes, she hates it because you are apparently a major part of her life.
For which I am eternally grateful
While you are having fun riding the bike, she is worrying whether or not you are still alive. Fun for you. Not for her.
I'm sorry but as much as love my family, this is my life and I must live it for me.
Hopefully she'll only have to spend her life "only" worrying about you while you're having fun, and not receive that phone-call to end the worrying.
She got THAT phone call twice, once was for my dad shortly after they were married, he still doesn't remember getting married to my mum owing to the
smashed skull he received.
Once was for me, laying there smashed up I opened my eyes to see mums face and knew I was in for a long stay in the hospital; turned out to be 3 1/2
months. She's a tough old bird though and would rather her kids live life for themselves. As a family we've dealt with much more harrowing things
usually involving horses.
There is a saying amongst the biker community
Let those that ride decide.
Thank you for your concern.
But as my mum knows and as I, as father have learned, it may be worrying, but you've got to let your kids live their life and follow their dreams.
Yeah sure it hurts sometimes, and yes at times it enrages me, but I will always be there for them.
I will worry and I will cry. I will be proud that they were allowed to live for themselves and make mistakes.
But my worry isn't their problem.
Their joy of life however far outweighs any worry I have.
