Cool mom my mother would have never got on a motorcycle.

She wouldnt even get on our 4 wheelers or a snowmobile. Basically if it wasnt a cage forget it.

Re:taking mum for a ride 6 Months ago  
When I had a Honda CB900F, I was prepping my car for a paint job. My dad had gone to a hospital @ 10 miles away, and tried to WALK back. He was diabetic, felt faint, and stopped at a house for something sweet and some water. The homeowner called me and told me my dad just wanted me to pick him up. Since my car was questionably street-legal (and wanting to ride) I grabbed an extra helmet and went to pick up my Dad. Everything went fine, with the exception that every time I started or stopped, my Dad's helmet would smack mine. Finally, I told him " Just because the helmet says 'Bell' on it, doesn't mean you have to ring it!". A year or so later, I totaled that 900F and was looking for a replacement. My Dad found a Goldwing with a home-built trailer for sale and we went out to see it. I felt that I wasn't really ready for something that big at that time, and later bought a smaller bike. Much later, after he had passed on, I suddenly wondered if he was trying to convey to me that he'd like to ride with me again. Considering our relationship the last few cognicent years before we had to put him into a nursing home , it sometimes nags me.

Re:taking mum for a ride 6 Months ago  
When I got my Roadie I took it over to my folks. My uncle was there who I had only met a handful of times in my life. All three of them looked at it. My mom hated bikes to her dying day and I have always owned one so she wasn't happy. My dad had owned/ridden Henderson's, Harleys and Indians way back and later a few Hondas. I said hop on. He got on and sat there for a minute (he was 83) slowly got off and said "wow". I said I'll take you for a ride and he said no thanks. He realized his day had gone by and if he couldn't ride it he damn sure wasn't packing on the back.

my mom refuses. She hates to get out of her comfort zone.

Re:taking mum for a ride 6 Months ago  
Everyone in my family rode. Mom had a moped. My Dad says he rode a Wall of Death in Germany in the 1950's during the Great Berlin Airlift. He also says he was very drunk when he did it. Me sister was the only one of us who was only a passenger, although I recall her riding the minibike when we were younger. My brother had a race-prepped RD-350, as well as various big bore crotch rockets. Guess I was lucky, never had to deal with that stigma of "those dangerous motorcycles."

Re:taking mum for a ride 6 Months ago  
Hats off to your Mom, she looks like quite the gal. My mom was a little like that back in the day, always wanted to go for a ride in my 66 Vette with the top down. My dad was a motor cop in NY way back before I was born, and I remember him always talking about Excelsior and Pope motorcycles. I guess I know where the bike thing comes from. I'm 72 now and have been riding since I was 16.
