Hey guys, just joined this forum to ask a question that's been floating around my head for quite some time. I'm 16, almost 17 and I have been riding a 50cc moped for about 2 years. My parents are 100% anti motorcycle. I've been told that if I buy one while either one of them are alive, they'd smash it to bits. I think their hate for it is mostly because they know lots of people who were disabled or killed on bikes, and I tried to explain that it was either stupid on the rider (Flying through traffic at 110) or a person pulling out. Saying I plan to start out on a 250 does not change their view. Either way, there is no support for me and I am completely stuck. I've been itching to ride for years, and this is a huge bump in the road. Thanks.
