Your thoughts on sharing this sport with your children?
I have had mixed thoughts on this. On the one hand, I am second generation motorcyclist. My father contracted THE ILLNESS in his early days as traffic officer for Portland Police Bureau (btw, his first bike was a airhead in the 1960ÔÇÖs). Still have vivid memories of him mounting and kicking his HD PD bike in the garageÔÇª headed to work. I, and my two brothers, followed suit; and my younger brother was also a motor-officer. However, I am older parent (47) with a 6 year old (only child); and both think of his (likely) future on motorbikes with joyful anticipation and FEAR. Anxiety to point, I have thought about hanging it up to prevent the spread of this obsession.
Have others struggled with this or am I just OCD?
