I have great memories of riding with my Dad as well, in the Methow Valley of Central Washington where I grew up. I would ride my RM80 while he rode his Honda CB450 "Hawk." He could trail ride the heck out of that bike, an original ADVer! I'm loving these stories, keep 'em coming! I see a PW50 in my near future....

kids

My youngest girl is 3. I get ask about once a week, or anytime I come home on my bike. When am I going to get her a pink moto? My son is 10. He finally rode on the back of mine after some coaxing. Slow down SLOW DOWN for about the first 100 feet then laughing and this is fun! Now I can't keep him off the 4 wheeler. I need a bigger bike budget. Looking up for riding partners.

I'll never forget the day we came home with this.



Then this



And even as much as you love them you have to get the camera first.




Kal can now sit on the seat and touch his toes to the ground, I'm looking forward to spring.





Give them a big hug and kiss, you never know what the future will bring.

Father and son ride

Summer before last my son and rode (KTM 640 and KTM 950SE) up to Bench Lake on the back side of Mt. Adams and camped for several days. He was 18 and had just graduated from high school. We had ridden a lot of off-road in the past, but there were many, many memories from this trip.

Ok, my confession... I grew up riding with my dad. Unfortunately, he passed away when I was 15 (damn cancer)

My second bike... My first bike was a Honda QA 50 when I was 5.

.
Look at those pants!!! Love the 70's.


Yep, I stated racing BMX and motorbikes before all the fancy gear and sponsors.



Here is some pics from the 70s of my dad and one of his 80 plus bikes he owned during his short life.

Here are some "family riding pics" that my Dad recently sent me from the island of Mindanao, Philippines. Not exactly ATGATT.





This just because it's kind of cool:

Young rider training

Before you learn to ride, you must learn to clean Dad's bike. Missed a spot there, little buddy.
