Ditto - my Dad taught me to ride @ 11 on a 1966 CB160.
First clutch release I smacked into the wood shed and thought "well that's the end of that"
My Dad picked up the bike and said "get back on and try it again".

First time I ever remember my Dad being cool

There are missing one in Ireland that I know of.

It's called "Killinaspick". I have a picture at home of that sign floating around somewhere.

From our place in WP, you drive in one direction to get to Beaver Village, go the other way, Kum&Go.
