Hey guys. I never really thought much about riding until a few months ago when the idea really took me: freedom, rebellion, cheap travel.... all the usual stuff got me really into it. (I'm 17 btw) One of the main reasons I didnt consider it earlier is because my dad was killed doing some off-road stuff with his mates when I was just a toddler and so my family has been anti-bikes ever since. So has anyone else been in a similar position? What the hell can I say to my mum?
