Seth, as a parent and newbie rider, I can see both sides of your situation. My advice: Take the MSF class, pay for it yourself, and then tell your folks how much your insurance discount is (mine is 10%). Save for riding gear, but don&#8217;t buy anything beyond the gloves and boots you need for the class till they relent&#8211;you may outgrow some of it before that happens. If you are underage and need their permission for the class, tell them it will make you a safer and more aware driver, which it will. You will only truly convince them by your behavior: Follow the rules they set, delay any rebellious tendencies until you are on your own, be patient. It won&#8217;t keep them from worrying, but your chances of getting a bike increase every time you show them that they can trust your judgment. Good luck!

Seth, if you&#8217;re under 18, your parents know you too well, and that&#8217;s why they&#8217;re not letting you have a bike. But if you&#8217;re over 18, why are you worried about your parents?

I can&#8217;t say enough about taking a basic saftey class and really showing some real responsibilty with all your vehicles and eventually your parents will be ok with it. It took my mom along time to realize that I would be as responsible as I possibly could and that in itself would cut down on the risk. Also I rode a cruiser and not a crotch rocket which helped a lot. Happy trails Seth and be patient you&#8217;ll eventually get what you want
