I got my pilot license when I was 19. Although I was probably the most dangerous person in middle Tennessee at the time, I was probably safer doing 140 mph 100 feet [or lower] over the ground in an airplane than 120 mph on the ground riding a bike.

So by a semi-unconscious (read self preservation) choice I didn’t get my first bike, a Honda nighthawk 250, until I was 36. Rode that for about a year until I discovered how fun it is to jump railroad tracks crossing gravel roads. Then I picked up my dl650.

As for Mom....I think she's still in denial.
