When do I need to stop riding?

So my DH and I own a huge a$$ truck and a motorcycle. Well, the truck has been killing us in gas, although its getting better with these new prices, but its still just more cost effective to ride the bike. So when should I stick to only the truck. Besides if we ever crash she will get hurt. I know that. But honestly I have been hit 4 times this year in that truck so its not safe either. Just windering if the vibrations themselves could cause any damage.

  • Medically there is no need to stop riding the bike if you are on the back end. However, if you are the one driving the motorcycle you need to stop when you start getting too big of a belly or start losing your balance.

  • i don't think the viberations would hurt the baby. but just the fact you have alot more protecting you and your baby if you were in the truck.. than on a bike. do you not have any other vehicles???

  • Nope, the truck is a quad cab with a latch system and stuff for when baby is born. Its just so big noone seems to see it somehow and hit it changing lanes all the time! I have gotten hurt pretty good at least twice. :( At least on the bike we have more room to react to people.

  • You may have more room to react to people, but you also have a greater risk of putting it down. I come from a family of biker boys/girls, and jacked up trucks. IMO, it isn't safe for you to be on the bike right now, and it hasn't since you became pregnant.
