This thread wins the internet forever.

I have three daughters, only one of which is even slightly close to me emotionally. I had so focused on my career, traveling to and living in countries all over the world. I would spend 90 hour weeks in the office trying to make the next dollar and build the next best thing. And I ended up with just memories.

Each one of you posted here, all with beautiful daughters, treasure every moment that you can with your daughters. I'm so envious that you can take them on trips, and share these adventures together. I would give up everything I owned, every experience I had, if I could just take a trip with them.

I don't have that chance any more. It was lost for money and power and ambition.

But thanks everyone for posting here. I lived vicariously through your photos, which brought tears to me. But that's OK, I saw a lot of happiness here.

Sorry to be such a bummer.

Didn't. She had to take the SAT's before work so she didn't get to come over until the next day.

She did put in a 65 mile ride on it though.

This is my friend Tastroman, an inmate here on ADV, and his beautiful daughter Heather...



...taken on Labor Day at Rap's Orchard Gap on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

TMan and Heather are best buddies, and ride everywhere together. It was our first time meeting her, and we were so impressed with this polite, articulate young lady - she's a class act through and through (as are her parents).

One more of them from last week, turning north onto the Parkway to begin their journey home:



Ride on!

that's a great post. I just dropped my daughter off for her sophomore year at Boston College and she really had no interest in taking a ride on either my motorcycle or sidecar rig before she went back... and that makes me very sad
