Here's mine.

Here's PrincessBee on her bike. Up until last year she just rode on the back of mine, but last summer we got her a used CRF80. She rode it around the yard and up & down the street for a while, but got bored with that & wanted to hit the trail.

Here she is, last September, first trail ride:


Same ride:


This year. I just noticed, either the bike shrunk or she grew.


A couple of years ago:


She's pretty cautious on the bike, which is fine with me. She's not the reckless type. She does like mud though

Great thread.

Cheers,
Dave

Good for you! My Dad's gone now, but I still cherish the rides I had with him and all that he taught me about life and motorcycles.

Daughter of Darkness says "This Rocks!" We've had some great times, whether sport touring through the west two-up, picking our way through single track, or ripping through the desert. I'm not sure either of us would have survived the teenage years without the benefit of 2 wheels. Precious times for sure. Never underestimate the life lessons riding will teach your kids.

How about this kiss goodbye

I get that kiss almost every morning. Thank you all.

Thank you.

I paused. "Be careful, Angus. This is one of those defining moments in your child's life."

I replied, "Friends come and go. Sure, I care about them, but the feelings I have for you so far outweigh that, I can't even measure it. I care about every scratch you get, every pain. I was there at your first doctor's visit, and nearly every one since. You're constantly on my mind. I take better care of myself because of you. No friend I ever had, or could ever have could come close to how I feel about you. You're so much more than a friend, I can't even describe it."

She got up, walked over, and lovingly put her head on my chest.

Guys, I'm a firm believer that the little girls God blessed us with love bikes because we love bikes. If we loved tennis, or Jeeps or anything, those little girls would be right there with us. It's just that they want to be with us. What our hobbies are is secondary.

Cherish those little angels. They grow and change way, way too fast and before you know it, they're gone with their own lives and their own adventures.
I wrote this post last July, and I just got a glimpse of the "adult" daughter I've been dreading meeting. It was our church campout. Since she's out on summer break from school, and my wife and I both couldn't take the time off, she went with another family that we trust implicitly from the church.

That was last Wednesday.

We don't hear anything, much less see her at all until Friday night. In every time past, when there was a length of time (especially days) of not seeing each other, the reunion always involved running and "DADDY!!!!" into my arms.

I tracked her down on the campground, and walked up behind her. She turned around, saw me and said "Hi, daddy." then went back to what she was doing.

Hey.. Where's my.. what about my..why didn't you.. aw, crap.

I went back to sit next to my wife looking like a kid who just dropped his ice-cream cone in a puddle. (not that there's anything wrong with my wife, you understand!!)

We left for home a couple of hours later, and the scene repeated itself the next day. And the day after that.

In talking about it with other parents at the campground, the ones that had grown kids could completely sympathize with me.

However, all the "It's completely natural"s and the "All the kids do it"s fell of deaf ears.

"But, you don't understand!! This is MY girl!"

much like PC in those clever Apple commercials, "I've come to a sad realization."

"...allow"

One of the reasons I spend so much time with my daughter is the understanding that she will go her own way someday. I'm like you though. When it happens it won't "feel" natural. It'll be the hardest thing ever for me to let go of her. Even though it is natural. But hey! There always grandkids right!
