Here is what you are missing. BTW, she is looking at an old motorcycle (AJS, I believe) hence allowing me to post this pic here.

Always later than you think......

Mom's (@ 86 years) health was starting to slip a couple of years ago.... As I was preparing to leave Arizona I knew that if I didn't do this deed it would never happen.....Dad (94) helped me load her in the rig and we took a 30 minute ride....she waved to everyone one she saw as we tooled around the neighborhoods......she had a twinkle in her eye as a twenty year old would.....She rode in her twin brothers sidecar in the 40's...he passed away (on their birthday) at 29 years old....Mom passed away in our home a couple of weeks ago and I thank God that I took the time to share that ride with her....I will never forget it...................

That is just a great post - so glad you got to have that time with your Mom!

Listening to a couple of mates talking about crossing the Nullabor on a couple of big Jap tourers recently is impressive enough, but tales like this really puts adventure riding into perspective.

Thanks for sharing

Lifted this pic from the cafe-racer thread. A nice looking girl with a nice smile on a nice bike, so me thinks the pic does qualify for this thread as well


MOD: If this pic is not OK because of nudity rules, please do delete, but please leave us the link.

The bike looks like it missing the bulb in the head light, the bulbs in the girls head lights seem to be fine.

...please 'scuse if I posted this in this thread already?

Below are a coupla pics of my own Ma, taken on Mother's Day a couple of years ago. My Mom was the daughter of a dentist, who often worked in the hospital and saw many broken bodies from bikes of all kinds... Mom was never allowed to learn to ride a bicycle....!! She was over on Mother's Day a couple of years ago, I asked if she would like a spin around the block, she said she would be glad to just hike up her skirt, and give it a whirl!






Seeing his child-bride of 82 going by, my 88 year old Dad commented that he wasn't sure if that was a look of pure joy, or sheer terror....


They were both awfully good sports... it was a memorable day!

It shore aint, by the rules, but maybe we'll let it slide by pulling a National Geographic on their ass.

Wha-Pow!
