old thread, I know, and I'm not a woman, but if it means anything, my mom rode on the back of my dad '77 goldwing from Chattanooga, TN to FT. Polk, LA when she was about 7 months pregnant with me... I turned out fine. She rode with him all the time with me, and my two sisters, and we're all just fine...
That's just your opinion and you may be a little biased. We'd like to hear from all your friends on the subject, please. :lol::lol:

Of course I jest. Welcome to the forum newbie, we appreciate the first-hand knowledge.

Thanks guy, I realize I don't have a kawi. I ride a honda, but so far seems like a pretty good group here. So, if no one has a problem with it, I may stick around...

I don't see a problem with it. I had a couple Kaws but have been on a Yamaha for ~2.5 yrs and they haven't thrown me out yet.

RE Riding and pregnancy:

From a medical point of view, (Sorry the ER RN comes out at the darnest times) there comes a point at which the baby can put enough pressure on the cervix to cause the membranes to rupture in a bumpy situation. In many cases when there are no complications, women can ride up to 4-5 months safely if they are not putting to many G's into things. There is always risk at any stage.

Third trimester should be out of the question though. Each woman needs to make that decision with her OB and the Father of the child (if he's part of the equation). Most women get a feel for when they need to stop.

Depending on the type of bike she rides, the size of the baby will put pressure on internal organs, like the bladder, and add a bump and OOPS !! Something feels warm and wet. Is it raining with the sun out? Can't resist the humor. This did happen to a friend of mine, that was her last ride until after she stopped breastfeeding. She was just about 4.5 months.

Remember, each woman and fetus will be different and the same woman may be different with each pregnancy.
Just food for thought.

I rode until I had my youngest son (this was 16 years ago.. lol.) I never had any problems other than fitting on the back and my driver getting the crap kicked out of him! LOL... My son was just fine. My girlfreind recently had a baby and she also rode for awhile. She had to stop early due to not fitting on the bike anymore. (smaller bikes=less riding time for preggos) I don't see any issues with it. As long as its comfy, go for it.

I wouldn't recommend doing this....I mean, can you imagine the discomfort of getting a helmet in there for the little one????
Sorry...couldn't resist!

My 4 year nursing degree knowledge strongly advises against doing this. A trip in an auto is simply much safer. Figure out something else exciting to do for a few months. Sometimes, sacrifices are beyond prudent.

Edit: sorry Greenmeanie....just now saw your post. Sorry to pull rank.....:cool:
