Motorcycles.....Mom Has Always Loved Them, BUT....
....it is statistically been proven that the death rate has gone up. What TYPE of motorcycle will give you an idea what your Mom's son is thinking. Mom's mate drives a Harley Davidson that is large, lumbering, has room on either side to take a small condo with him. It isn't a racing bike for sure, but one designed for great distances. His gas bills are a fraction of an economy car BUT he has to gas up more often because of the size of the tank. I would recommend, if your state offers it, or at a local community college, a motorcycle riding class. The ones here in NC are about $300.00, but most insurances will discount your rates for having taken it. The other is purely experience as a rider. Mom's mate & her have been in some serious wrecks!! Mom was 21. They've been so close to IDIOTS that her mate literally had to kick the car's door with his foot!! Old lady drifting into their lane!! No, it wasn't the blind spot! The rider of a motorcycle is generally NOT THE ONE who is at fault. But most times, the accidents aren't pretty. Mom still has trouble with her hip. The bike pinned her & it slide on ice in the Smokies basically pushing her & it over the side of a steep grade. By heavens chance, a strong oak sapling was there & she & the bike were held from going all the way over. It was a LONG WAYS down!! That was a harley, too, a 1200. Harley has come along way from those days.

Now, most young ones don't consider the "geezer" bikes much & like those that are built for speed & racing. Been through Atlanta when a group of about 7 riders came barreling through all that traffic, darting in & out. Mom was terrified they were about to witness a horrendous accident. If your Mom wants her son to know about what happens when a body hits the pavement at 50 to 60 mph. my Mom can tell him having witness the horrible site in Coral Gables, Florida, 1974. Drugged crazy decided to get on his kawasaki NUDE & blast through rush hour traffic. Cops & Metro Miami give pursuit. He had to have been going lots faster because it sure looked like it. Mom was stuck in traffic that was at a stand still & along with about 50 other people, saw him hit the curb side & he flew through the air hundreds of ft. He had zero protection. When he stopped sliding along the roadway....you couldn't tell it was a human. That's the facts. Ride with sandals, you're betting you get to keep your toes that day. Ride in shorts, betting your leg muscles. You get the point now. There will be no mercy. That roadway is not his friend. He will have to act FAST reflexes & try to out think morons. They are behind 2 to 3 ton passenger cars. Don't want to even think about a big rig. Even the Smart car is gonna smart! I know I've played the devil's advocate here, that was my intentions. Mom's mate had a good friend die 2 yrs ago coming back from the American Legion Hall & collided with a deer!!!
