Well, I think its fine, actually that kids don't want to drive.   


Let them all live in their tiny apartments in huge congested cities, and they can commute on their sardine cans on rails - or in their self-driving elevator cars, or just work from home in their closets, or do whatever it is they think is trendy or prestigious.   I hope they live their entire lives without leaving the shelter of their glass skyscrapers, or their online gaming universe.   If they like the Matrix so much, they are more than welcome to live in it!!


That means the real world and the back roads are ours to enjoy in peace.

Why should they drive when mommy and daddy tote them around everywhere until they are 30 years old. 😂😂
My 21 year old nephew is a senior at OSU, doesn't drive my sister and her husband go get him and take him back any time he wants. He took a bus once and said never again. (My dad would ask, who's in charge the kid or the parent  ;)  )


He wants to move to San Diego, and won't drive, not sure how well that works out, a few people with experience there say it can be done. But I still consider SoCal the land of cars, few don't drive and traveling an hour away for work is nothing.

Jamie and I did a great little road trip earlier this month. I have completed the ride reports and you can read them on my blog. It is just too long to re-write. I hope that you all enjoy the reports. I have posted some pictures from the ride to set the tone. Have a great day and Ride safe!

Me and my friends grew up riding home made mini bikes. It was nothing for us to move up to a motorcycle when we got licenses. Our kids grew up riding 3 and 4 wheelers. Many of these these kids lack two wheel skills and  are scared of bikes.

It's obviously more than a motorcycle-only thing because auto manufacturers face the same dilemma with driving age kids not at all interested in driving.  A good friend who teaches at OSU said a lot of her students hope to secure employment in a city with good public transportation, extensive bicycle lanes, etc.  It's one of the criteria they use for job hunting.

AutoWeek magazine had an article a few years ago about the younger generation.  I had just read it, when my brother in law was upset that his daughter, at age 18 was not interested in learning to drive.  I informed him and my sister that AutoWeek stated that, if I remember correctly, less than 60% of 21 year old and younger have a drivers license.  The article did not even talk about cycle licenses.


She is now a senior in college and still no license or desire to drive.


You should have heard the screams from my sister and husband back then when I offered to take her to a Ford sponsored teen driving seminar with SCCA and use Denise's '06 Mustang GT with 5 speed.  They thought I was going to try to kill her.  I informed them it was safer than their Saturn as the Mustang has ABS and traction control and will shut down if things get too crazy.  And, I would be in the pass seat also.




And no idiots on their cell phones on the track  :) (closed course or wherever this event was held)
