I am and I would definitely stop also the minute i found out. A girl at work came riding up to the office monday on the back of her boyfriend's bike and she is a little over 3 months. so of course, everyone was commenting about it...her point was that she could just as easily have something happen to her while riding in a car. And I can see her side on that also. I had never really thought about it before as I didn't have to face this issue as i only started riding after my kids became teenagers and so I was just curious as to what other women facing this may have done.
A gal I have known for many years rode from central BC Canada, to Texas, took in a NASCAR race, and rode back to BC while pregnant.
I know play with the daughter she was carrying at the time.
This lady also rode to work regularly on her bike, and she took a canoe trip with us, went fishing, rode in cars, trucks, took showers, went up and down stairs, cooked meals, did laundry, and went bowling, and all sorts of other things that could potentially be harmful.
I do not see it as a reason to stop living.
If she was maybe thinking of entering the BAJA 1000 on her dirt bike, or racing her crotch rocket at the Isle of Man, I would if I was her friend try and talk her out of it.
But if she is just commuting, and going for normal rides, then really is it worse than a car.
I would actually be far more concerned for her safety if she drove a toyota to and from work, than rode a motorcycle.
I grumbled at a good friend of mine and told her to park and sell her toyota as I feel its a very unsafe car, and toyota refuses to correctly fix them.
In the mean time she is driving one of my pick up trucks until her car sells and she buys something else.
So yes, I am protective of my friends, I just do not see bikes as being super scary.
Then again I am one of those crazy guys that doubles my kids lot, and my wife to.
I also bought my kids dirt bikes of their own, and for my wife I got her a street bike and a dualsport bike to ride.
If i thought them that unsafe, I would sell them all, and allow them to ride in nothing smaller than a kenworth.
