Is that a custom 'stitch? I see that the legs are rolled up, did you just order the smallest one? I asked then several years ago if they'd do a custom kids and they said no. heck, they won't even make a ladies model.

The love in my life is now 22

My daughter is the only true love of my life. Her mom was diagnosed with Bi_polar disorder when My punk was 7. I tried to help for a couple years, but thats a battle no one can take. After 2 years I was outta there !! Actually she went. I kept the house and my punk.
When she was little, she was Daddys little girl and would hang out with me whenever I was home

[IMG][/IMG]

She loved to ride with me once her legs were long enough to reach the pegs. She always liked to ride on the full dresser, as it had stereos, and lots of room for her stuff.
As she got into her teens, her life got a bit confusing with no Mom around, and we drifted apart a bit. Always daddys little girl, but there was some resentment from her, because I was the reason mom was no longer around. Well now she is 22, a grad from engineering school, heading off into her own world. I miss her humor and understanding. Its amazing how much they turn out just like us.
Well I rode around with my buddys, but something wasnt right without her, so now I found the perfect replacement.
My sister has a flock of youngsters, and a hubby thats a devoted bible thumper. Meaning very little time for them all. Her 4th child has a bit of an adventurist gene in her.
So when the weekends roll around, I pick up My new buddy, and off we go.

She loves riding with me, and seems to always be whipping on me to go a little faster.
[IMG][/IMG]

Its tough sometimes, to decide who is having more fun !!

And then when we get out the 4 wheeler, well the smiles just seem to be bigger and last for days.

It's a 36S, one of the discontinued Hi-Viz models. While I understand that disclosing a young lady's size is indiscrete, for reference Sarah's about 4' tall and weighs about 64 or so lbs.



And yes, the suit's just rolled up. No alterations needed.

iirc, a bmw dealer told me they will make custom kids sizes of their rallye suits, if you've got that kinda money to spend.

heck the woman's XS in your favorite gear. I bought a nice field sheer jacket for my daughter last year when she was 9. Still fits her good and has good protection and armor.

Better look

Here's a better look at the jacket. I am getting her the pants next. For now, she wears heavy denim under motocross pants and leather boots. Moving up to a full faced road helmet too.

Wow what a great thread.

My little sister loves to go riding with Dad. I sometimes tag along aslo. I like the comment further up the page about this having a great "family" theme. Well done.

Here are a couple of shots of Erica on a recent ride, and the link to the report.

It's not really an adventure without the rain is it?

Looking fresh before hitting the road


Yeah, 500 more miles of rain to go!


My Mom takes me to the best places...waiting for the Ferry off Deer Island (NB)

After getting back into riding a year ago, my daughter took her first spill this weekend. She caught her front wheel in a rut. She's quite proud of her bruise.



Guess what brand goggles she wears?

My little girl (almost 21yrs!) loves to ride on the Ducati with me. This thread has done a fine job of reminding me I need to make more time for that. I asked her once if any of her guy friends have bikes, but she said no way would she ride with those squids! She acutally used that term. Good Girl.

Here is a photo of her wishing she was a foot or two taller.
