Okay before I begin, I don't want you all to flame me about this topic, because I know it might seem silly to some of you, but I hope others will understand my situation.
I am interested in buying a bike, but my parents are totally against it. I am a student and live with them whereby they provide food and shelter to me while I support my university studies through student loans. My parents are also very level headed and not "strict" but they are really afraid of me getting injured.
Could anyone give me some pointers on convincing them? Im sure many of you had parents opposing the purchase of a bike. How did you convince them?
I know there is a similar topic about this, but most people ended up flaming him and telling him to move out amongst other ridiculous statements. My parents are way way more important than a bike, and while they are against it, i have a feeling i can convince them with reasoning and facts.
Can you help?
Thanks in advance
