Although she has just turned 16 she is now looking towards her first bike and is slowly drifting her own way. First piccie shows us taking a break in a roadside layby cooking bacon sandwiches and cups of tea...







Now my youngest whom likes to fall asleep on the back is known as Lillian on the pillion! and here she is on a ride out collecting land marks, part of a Round Britain Rally....


Now that's dangerous. How do you deal with that? I am always afraid of my kids falling asleep....

a long-ago GF used to nod off on the bike, too. Only once did it freak me (she just suddenly slumped). Mostly she'd lean on my back and if I felt her relax I'd just square my shoulders and adjust if she shifted. A tap on the knee would wake her if I had a situation.

wow. Those were good times.

Hi all

I am a woman rider (age 34). My father always rode when I was a child. I always had a fascination with his motorcycle ('73 Honda 750 - or some year close to '73) and when I was a toddler, I would "waddle" up to the bike, pat it, and say, "Buuuden....buuuuden!" Even then, he would rig some belt/strap system - or let me ride in front of him and take me slowly up and down the half mile long driveway. I was always thrilled!

We rode together some more as I was growing up, memories for which I am very thankful.

He has not had a bike in many years now, due to multiple back surgeries and various other health issues. However, he got on my wee lil' XT about a month ago. All he needed to know was, "One down and five up," and in his classic style...having not ridden in years, popped the front wheel up and took off. Of course, his statement when he got back after just 10 min or so was, "Don't tell your mother I was on your bike!" I knew that letting him ride was probably not the safest thing I could have done, however, I also knew that it was probably going to be his last ride. And, when he returned safely, he was grinning from ear to ear and his eyes looked younger than I have ever seen them!

He keeps talking about getting another bike, but I think time and injuries have taken their toll on his body. So, he now just enjoys my stories, sometimes even just my daily commute stories.

I shared this because I greatly admire this thread - I love reading the stories and seeing the pictures, sometimes it even brings tears to my eyes.

My dad is not only my hero, but instilled in me a great love of riding - something that is now a huge part of my life.

Thanks for sharing. I hope my daughter (now 8) will look back and have great memories of our rides and time together.

R-e-s-p-e-c-t!

My daughter just turned 13 in January, and this weekend she will be taking the MSF basic rider course to qualify for her scooter license. I can only hope that I'm giving her the gift your father gave to you.

Great respect for you both.

She's a natural.










Don't even think about photographing the helmet hair though.

I cannot relate to having girls as I had two strapping boys that learned everything there is about riding MC's. The nice thing is that they married two wonderful girls that love to ride. We now have 5 grandkids. 3 girls and 2 boys. The oldest grandaughter is 7 and already asking when we can go for a ride. One boy is already riding his own electric mc and loves it. They call my wife and I grandma and grandpa bruupp bruupp. Youngest boy at 1 year old already showing interest. Life is good boys, girls, grandkids. awesome.
