My oldest is a boy, but I have two girls, a 2 year old and a 2 month old.

If anyone is wondering the Answer is 3 and Done for us. (Number of Kids).

My 2 year old Gina loves to ride on the 4 wheeler or in front of me on the XR 70 we have.

Great pictures and posts from all of you Girls and Guys.

I will post a pic also if I get a chance.

Sorry....

No offense taken, you're not starting a flame war -- I agree with you. I understand that was dangerous, shouldn't have done it, would never do it again without some protection for her, and would never advocate anyone else doing anything like it either.

I don't do that regularly (only did it that one time, actually), and please understand that this particular ride was safer than if you were walking around a park carrying your little one on your shoulders. Yes, bad things can happen in an instant, and without warning, as in any situation -- motorcycle or no. I don't mean to justify what I did, because I admit, it wasn't smart and there's no need to take unnecessary risks, especially when it comes to our kids. I just want to make sure you realize that I'm not running her to the grocery store or somewhere on a regular basis!

Be careful, be safe, and protect the little ones!

Still a great thread.

And despite the flack that was stirred up, I want to commend the person who made the unpopular post for stepping up and admitting the error and taking corrective actions. Not everyone is big enough on the inside to do that in a public forum Nuff said - back to the Dads & Daughters show...

I have two daughters, 10 & 12, and have just recently gotten back into riding. They both have given me the hardest time about motorcycles but this thread may help soften them. I don't get much time with them due to all af our schedules but this is motivating to make time for one on one with dad.

Neat pics and reports of fathers and daughters with the bikes. Then , when the daughter gets on with her own life, you end up with granddaughters to guide your rides.

Hey Don!

You are LUCKY! I understand even more after meeting Erica last week.

Just saw this thread. Choked me up too. Beverly was moved by it as well.

I hope my girls will someday wanna take a ride, but so far they haven't wanted to.

This thread gives us all hope!

Thanks, Don.

Unlurking to say...

Hi all, newbie here. Sydney-sider who likes Honda VFRs, and most other things to do with bikes.

I have a few mates here (Stackator, Peka to name a couple) and hopefully I'll also have an ADVrider-appropriate bike sooner rather than later... great site.

Here is my 3yo daughter Tathra, a lady kindly allowed her to sit on her pink GPX600. If it's pink, it's coooool.



She's a Rossi fan but of late is showing a bit of interest in Stoner, wonder why? Actually she has always followed Stoner's career:

Her mum Joedee rides too although usually in more protective clothing than this (don't want to get in trouble for advocating unsafe riding practises, or ill treatment of animals... the cat has also been for a motorbike ride, to and from the vet)




Just to prove that getting girls on bikes early leaves a lasting legacy - here is Joedee is at 2 years old in 1975, on her dad's Norton. Obviously she got a taste for British bikes early in life...




My son River is not quite 1, but last night he sat with me and watched the Brno World Superbike round; he backed up for Laguna Seca MotoGP this morning.

What's a good age?

I've been thinking my 1 year old daughter will have to wait 'till she's about 7 until she can go on the road with me. Forgive me if this has been covered before.

I asked mine (12 soon to be 13) whether it was riding on the bike that she liked, or being with her dad.

She sat for a minute...

Then she looked at me with those gorgeous blue eyes, and said "50/50".

Guys, it just doesn't get any better than that.

In the UK there is no minimum age, but you can be prosecuted if the child appears to be unsafe. My daughter was 5 before she could reach the pillion footrests comfortably and I could find a helmet with a good fit.
