    I had an 83 Honda Custom 650 and the bosses wife (she was a boss, too) (and boss :) ) happened to be out front and she asked for a ride, so I took her for a 15 minute ride up on the freeway… She enjoyed it… I had a good rapport with my bosses…

    Val is being rather hypocritical…her husband rides every day. I’ve ridden nearly every day for 50 years and have never broken a bone on the street. So Val should have asked if the boy had boots, gloves, and a jacket for her, to go with that helmet. And what his riding record was. Tickets, accidents, etc.

    Maybe she already has…and that’s why she said No.

    And very nearly died doing it. And at 19, the seat is putting too much pressure on his brains for him to be trusted.

    Uh, Holly said he’s 19. That would be a solid NO. And, who has an assortment of jacket, boot, helmet, and glove sizes? I have zero desire to ever get on a bike and I’m over 50. Not gonna happen, ever, but I have plenty of friends who ride. I respect it, just no interest.

    Don’t forget, Val’s husband almost died in a motorcycle accident, not long ago.

    My dad had his first ride on a motorbike at age 83, he’d always said “Nope nope” when offered a ride before. He Loved it. Was the highlight of his summer.

    Only a teenager could translate “Over my dead body” to “She’ll think about it.”

    Motorcycle safety depends on alertness and planning. These are not skills 19 year-olds are known for.

    Val’s thing about it alright, and about what could happen. When I was about 12 and my folks were away a local older teenaged girl was “watching” me. Her boyfriend came over one night on his motorcycle and asked if she wanted to ride over to a carnival that was in town. “No”, she said, she had to watch me. He said, “he can come too.” So I rode behind her behind her boyfriend. While I was gone my folks called to see how I was. Major trouble ensued!
