Thank You for the kind words, I'm glad (?) our story touched people.

Was at the in-laws for a few days, my sister-in-law has a new baby as does a cousin of my wife (both baby girls).

My wife has been smitten with Baby Fever as our daughter was hovering over the infants and keeping guard over them.

I, on the other hand, am scared out of my mind to revisit what we've been through let alone have something worse happen. People say "Don't worry", but, if you've been in our place before you'd understand.

I'll keep living vicariously through this thread

Happy New Year to the Dads and their Daughters

Here's my daughter at 16 , stopping for lunch on our way home from one of her softball tournament weekends. She would rather ride on the back of the bike, than take one of the vehicles any day.

But I think she's being a little embarrassed that I whipped out the camera.

My daughter just got her endorsement in time for Santa to bring new riding gear. She's going to have a great summer.

Great thread. I've never really looked at it until recently. We are expecting this March.

And yes, I've already started looking at 50cc bikes for her and a new offroader for myself.

Good luck!
you are either part of the landscape, part of the solution, or part of the problem.

Well, a lucky bunch of fathers we are, aren't we?

I am thrilled to see all the pics but also a bit sad, at the same time... I've since separeted from my daughter's mother (18 months now...) and I do miss my little girl... I do not want to sound like an idiot but her mother is not making it easy for me to see my girl... it's not like she's not letting me see her at all, but I do have a tight schedule working 2 jobs and through weekends... sometimes it's hard for me to find the time to be with my daughter and when I do... her mother has taken her away to her auntie's place and stuff like that... I think a phone call or a text message from her mother to me would be in order... sometimes on Fridays, I could find some time to spend with the little girl IF her mother would tell me in advance she's taking our daughter to spend the weekend at her auntie's place... sometimes, I miss the opportunitty to be with my girl just by one hour! and if I don't get to see her on Friday, I only get to be with her the next Monday or Tuesday...

Sorry, but I really needed to vent... I do miss my little girl

Here's a pic of sweet little Matilde aged almost 3... now she's past 4

My Emily

Been lurking for a bit and finally ran across this thread. I've read every post - VERY inspiring!

My twelve-year-old daughter Emily and I made our first trip together around Colorado and northern New Mexico this past summer. If you want to know what your kid is made of, put her on the back of a motorcycle, cover over 3,000 miles in 12 days in temperatures ranging from 28 to 95 degrees, feed her dehydrated meals, make her sleep on the ground, deprive her of all electronics and crash the bike twice. Turns out Emily is made of the right stuff - she can't wait to do it again. I could not be more proud of her.

Departure day...

One of our many Continental Divide crossings...

Wolf Creek Pass mid-day on day four...

Emily with her head lamp...

Looking forward to our next ride this summer!

Proud of my girls, they wanted to help him get his bike out and only started laughing after the rider got up laughing...

Great pics and story. Love to see the kids having fun, especially when they are still smiling when it gets difficult.

Well, here's my bike and my stepdad's VFR at Palomar Mountain.

He treated me to the MSF course when I decided I was ready to learn to ride. :)
