I found this in another thread and thought y'all might appreciate it.
This blurry pic is of a very talented young woman and her dad:


she gave her dads bike a spectacular paint job and I bet he is real proud of his little girl:


it's a nice little photo essay of her, see more here

I just stumbled upon this. Boy am I jealous. My daughter is all grown now and expecting her first child. Sigh ....
My best to all you Dads with still young daughters!
Keep an eye on the time - it goes by *very* fast.

My 5 year old is asking for her own motorcycle. Of course she's asking for her own "real phone" and iPad right now too.



She still won't ride her pedal bicycle but she zooms all over the place on her balance bike. She seems serious about riding on the back of my bike so we'll be getting some gear this spring and see how things pan out.



I'm going to stall her on the phone and iPad though.

Our now-5-year-old starting bugging us for her own dirt bike when she was late in her second year. We told her, "Not until you can ride a bike on your own," thinking it would buy us a few years. She grabbed a wrench at three and demanded I take her training wheels off. A few weeks later she had the pedal bike mastered. We put her off as long as we can, and now we are out of excuses. Her bike will be here this spring. (Insert nervous-looking emoticon here.)

Went to take the bike out when I got home from work, My oldest (12) asked if she could go with me. I asked her if she realized it was close to 30 degrees out...she said Yep, and that she would just wear some of my gear...

We weren't out too long, just enough to hit some twisty back roads and a trail through a field...


When we got home she asked why we came back so soon...

Daughters and I went out today to play in the snow. Since we don't have any good hills around for sledding we just used the KLX.

Me and my youngest daughter.

Last year I posted in this thread about me and my oldest daughter. I wanted to spend some quality time with her before she would move out of state to go to college. She has since left for college so now it was time to teach my youngest daughter how to ride and spend some quality time with her.

Here she is getting her first exposure to motorcycles. I am trying to plant that motorcycle seed.


Here she is getting some saddle time.


Finally she's is old enough for her first motorcycle camping trip with dad. We went to Mt. Rainier in Washington state.




And a few years later she's learned how to ride her own bike. Here she is on her CBR250R on our first road trip. She rode like a pro and seemed to enjoy it. I'm not sure if she and her sister will continue to ride motorcycles but at least I did my best to plant the motorcycle seed and had lots of quality time with my daughters in the process.
