tap....tap.....tap......So whats up dlrides ? Anyone want to make a trip to tellico plains with their daughters ? I'm just 200 miles away. My daughter and could do it. Of course i'd have to ask her first. And...school is starting in a few weeks. Of course it wouldn't have to take place this year. Maybe as soon as school is out next year.

Maybe a new thread on the subject is in order.

not to add any more "mist", but I found out last night that a 13yo girl in my daughter's youth group passed away yesterday from cancer.

Can there be anything more horrible for a parent to go through? Please remember the family.

thx.

My daughter has been riding with me since she was 7 (going on 12 now).
My son started just this past year He's 10 (dad was sans bike for a few years. :( )
However he is riding a RM80 now also. So he is making up for lost time.

The kids are a HUGE reason my wife got her 650GS.
Now we ride together every chance we get.

Not many picutres as we are having too much fun riding, but here is one from this past June on the Oregon coast.

I take my kids whenever I can. They are ALWAYS wanting to go and I don't complain one bit.

Kids are the BEST!

This is a great thread! I have a 4 y/o dtr who loves to ride around the neighborhood in front of me on my XR 400. "Faster, Daddy!" Uh-oh, don't tell mommy.... this afternoon my two y/o son asked to go for a ride for the first time! We tooled up the road a few hundred yards and back... he's lovin' it! Something I love that I want to share with my kids!

So on a related note... maybe this is for a new thread? Safety and taking our kids... anyone used the RiderRagz harness (which seems pricey!) or any other system like it? Best gear for kids? I want to take my dtr on the GS in the next year or two but I worry that with any distance she may fall asleep.

All the best to you who clearly care deeply for their children. What a wonderful and super chapter in life, huh!

I've had this happen a few times when my daughter was a bit younger. You just sort of know it's happened. Danger time seemed are early evenings, particularly if it's warm. I started to avoid any longer runs at this time, it's difficult to maintain attention.

Now she's older and we have an Autocom, it's much easier for her to tell me she's getting tired or for me to check she's ok.

No pics, but my daughter loved to ride with me. We did long WE tours and she was sitting in the back listening to her favourite kiddies tales on her walkman. Sweet memories.

And regarding falling asleep - took my mother (79) out for a ride a couple of years ago. When we arrived I asked her "How was it?" and she replied "Boring - I fell asleep!"
