Is this too dangerous for me? Am I too young?
by Hopeful Youth
I am turning 15 this summer and that means I will be old enough to get a motorcycle license. I really want one because my parents are divorced and they both work full time and they are never able to take me to or from my dance team rehearsals. I have practice almost everyday in the summer and everyday after school, but I hate having to constantly ask my friends for rides. My mother has two motorcycles and just recently learned how to ride. She has a Harley that she rides now, and a 250cc Honda Rebel that she used when she was learning. I want the Honda because it's the perfect size for me! The only thing stopping me is my mom, she doesn't think its safe for me even though we are the exact same height and weight! I think shes being irrational and over protective. I really need to learn and get a license because I can't always rely on others for transportation, and that's pretty impolite. If I got the right training, and learned everything I need to know.. what's the danger? Is it a bad idea for me? Should I be allowed to learn and get my license or should I wait an unnecessary year? I would only ride it to and from my school or to the store. I would't even take it out of my town or onto the highways. Ever.
p.s (I'm 5'4 and 115 lbs)
