Do you lot come from a family steeped in motorcycle history or like me, are you the only biker in the family, the blacksheep as it were.
My Brother in law has a Yamaha Thunderace, but I think you can tell who influenced him!

I was a blacksheep but persuaded the girlfriend to do her cbt and now she has a little virago 125 and hope to do her full test soon. (who said you can’t change women)

No bike lovers in my family……… when I bought my first bike (CBR600) my dad said he wasn`t surprised cos I`d never been a normal daughter anyway!!! my son hates bikes and is totally embarrased that I ride one, he actually begs me not to ride down certain roads in case his mates see me!!

No bikes in my family. My old man was scared shitless on the back of one once and it put him off for life. He didn’t put up any fight when I announced the acquisition of a bent framed Honda SS50. I sometimes wish he had (ie “Sell that heap of crap and buy a FS1E now!”).January 27, 2005 at 6:07 pm #22641barmy_carmyParticipant
Me, I had my first ride on my dads Matcheless, at the age of 4yrs. And loved it then as I still do now. I also discovered my Grandad used to ride motorcyles. So does my Aunt and uncle. They are currently travelling around New Zealand at the moment on a motorbike. So you could say its in the blood! But I only ride pillion, my husband wont let me be the pilot. We have a 1997 FZX 750. But every opportunity that we get we ride our bike.

Dont come from family of bikers, actually got my father interested in bikes and persuaded him to take test at the age of 56! LOL!
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
LOVE IS GIVING SOMEONE THE ABILITY TO DESTROY YOU, THEN TRUSTING THEM NOT TO.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, Vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming…….WOO HOO, what a ride!September 25, 2005 at 9:46 pm #22643RadarModerator
Anybody else from a deep biking heritage?
I make light look slow

Not me…my parents think bikers are the scourge of the earth! Ex -hubby did his DAS after we’d split up…typical. I’m the black sheep anyway…wouldn’t want to let them down now, would I? lol
There’s a thin person inside me screaming to get out…but I can usually shut the bitch up with chocolate!September 26, 2005 at 6:51 am #22645
Suppose theres me and my brother………..buy as I was the oldest I was the first with a bike
my father-in-law had a bad accident on a BSA in his youth and hates them now.
As for being the black sheep……………………guilty as charged![:p]

My dad used to be in the St Albans motorcross club when he was in his late teens, he has photos of going cross country on side cars, he was the mad nutter hanging off the sidecar with just a bar to grip onto and a plastic bone-dome! I grew up with him and his bikes, I have an embarrasing photo of me on the back of his old Honda CD175, I must have been about 8 years old. then he got a 250 wet dream and followed with a XBR500.
Now he’s gone back to his BSA’s.
Go out with a BANG… Light a fart!
