You should count your blessings that your daughter was interested enough to want to take part in one of her fathers passions. Spending time with an interested family member is one of the most valuable treasures that we can have.

Cherish the moment, and years from now reflect on the good times that the two of you had. Who knows, maybe one day she will be telling her children about the adventures she went on with her father.

37 degrees out but she still wanted to go...(good thing the school is only about 5 minutes away)



I made sure we parked where the school buses could see her
Awesome.
I'm sure that she is now the most popular girl at the school.

My 15 year old daughter just started drivers ed.
This morning over breakfast, she asked about a motorcycle learners permit.
I just about choked on my oatmeal.
Can't wait to see the look on her mother's face.

So are you going to let her? My 9 yo daughter has already started asking me about getting one.

I'd skip the permit and get her into a course like MSF. Don't let her "learn" by herself or from a non-professional instructor.

One thing I have learned in 15 years of parenting, there really is no "letting her". If she is going to do it, I can't stop her. The best thing I can do is help guide her. If she decides she want's to do this, I will help her sign up for the MSF class (I took it as well, highly recommended). This is a fairly new revelation that I have come to. Can you remember 15? Anyway, enough of the soapbox, we all raise our children the best we can and I think her riding a motorcycle would be great.
She also told me at the time, that it would be cool to commute to school on a bike. She will actually be 18 her senior year, so this should be interesting.
Her brother responded that the boys will think she is awesome if she's riding.

My daughter has been riding since she was 8 and did the MSF course this past summer when she was 16 to get her street license, top score in the class. Definitely go the official MSF course vs. the self done learners permit stuff. With a successful MSF completion no riding or written test to get the MC endorsement, a least in Nebraska. It may cost you some money (the harley riders edge course she took cost me 300$) but she will learn to ride right if she currently doesn't ride. I picked up an old KZ400 for her first street bike, this is her riding to high school a while back.

Very cool - have said it before but rowing is an awesome sport.

Your daughter is a tough nut!
