That's awesome, glad to see someone put that old kz to some good use. I remember seeing it on the omaha CL, neat old bike and and even cooler story with a young girl using it as her first street bike!

I traded a 1949 non running truck project for it that I didn't really have the time or money to do anything with. I can't afford a new bike right now, otherwise it would have been a Honda Repsol replica CBR250R with ABS in the garage for her to ride :) My wife's first bike that we got her after we met in college was a 1981 Kawasaki KZ440G, probably should have kept it when she ungraded to a Yamaha FZ6 in 2005.

Fine fall day for riding and liked how her hair looked in the sun. She was practicing jumps on the little bump in the pasture. That's her brother behind her, you can see the ADV stickers they are rocking on their front fenders if you look closely.

Wish I had a better camera........ and photographic abilities.

Yeah, that place is wide-open and great for kids starting out. That pic is a bit deceptive though. It is actually a semi-maintained riding area about a mile outside of town. It has rock crawling area, trials-style obstacles, a few mud-pits in the winter and a bunch of two-track trails running around the perimeter. My kids love it so I am a fan by proxy!

I am reminded again of how this thread is one of my favorites on the forum and I want to thank each and every contributor for sharing a bit with us here

too often we think of adventure riding as a male dominated arena and the truth is I wish there were more females sharing their stories with us here. I can only hope that some of the donors we see in this thread will grow up to be responsible and active adventure riders as well

I don't know if I put this one up, but took this one back in April.. She looks so young there yet the picture is only six months old! They grow fast!!

She will be two in November. I am going to get her a balance bike for her birthday. Every time she sees a bike or motorcycle she gets excited.. When she sees mine it's "Daddy's mo'cycle!! I want to ride daddy's mo'cycle!" hahahaa .. Love her
