I don't know if anyone else found this when they started riding, but my family and friends and the lack of support they have for my riding really gets me down. I understand the apprehensions that they have for motorcycles being dangerous, and me on one, but I hate constantly having to justify this new passion of mine. It's something that I feel so strongly about, and I find that I hate being around people (parents, siblings, close friends) who can only say negative things about something I'm coming to love so much. And I hate that I hate not wanting to be around them! Where does it end? Anybody have any tips on helping family and friends to adjust and see the positives of riding?
