That's cool, she sounds pretty open minded for her age. I am surprised if she was so willing at this point that she had never gone on one sooner.

That's awesome!

My mom rode with me one time when I was ~19 years old. Only time she ever rode on a MC. Even though she didn't approve of me having one, she enjoyed the ride. That was ~24 years ago, a fond memory of mine.
