Cry Thanks everyone

I am steadily working my way through this thread. I am living in Australia and a few months ago my wife broke her vows and moved back to South Africa, with our 1 year old daughter Jessica. I was thinking when, and how much, I will be able to see my daughter and spend time with her in the future, but seeing this thread and reading some of the other father's stories have given me new hope. Her mother has no desire to return to Aus one day. Hopefully Jess will find her way here someday and go riding with her dad. Keep up the good work guys. You never know what you have untill you loose it.

Feel for you mate, I have a South Africian friend over here and the same thing happened to him over here. Was tough for him for a while but he is getting there now.

Just trying to get the little one started early. Should have seen the look on her little face when I finally got her to push the starter button.

My 8 year old on our way for ice cream. We get to the sugar filled establishment and she asks me "When can I get a motorcycle!?" My mind raced for an answer besides NEVER, especially after we just passed 5 teenage boys on sport bikes, NEVER... my reply "Oh, we shall see, we shall see young one" in my best Yoda voice. Mom is the photographer.

Here is my daughter at her first trip to the motorcycle park, she pretty much just slept in the back of my wife's suv the whole time. She'll be 8 weeks old tomorrow, gotta get her started right though.

No Not Never

Hey PrStone50 you can't say never. You need to come up with a better answer than this. Cuz you would hate yourself for not sharing the love of motorcycles with your daughter. Motorcycles and daughters and dads = lifetime and unique bonding.

Ah, the Chief sidecar....

My grandfather used to take me out for rides and we'd always end up at an A&W stand for rootbeer floats.

I miss him!!!
