And there were no seat belts on cars. I can still remember the fights my brother and I would have in the back seat of our 55 Chevy while mom and dad smoked Camels and listened to AM.

I'm guessing this is the early 80s

Oh I like this. And this is proof it started for me a LONG time ago.

This is me and my older sister. 1974-75. On an SL350 (Dual sport) in Alaska (yeah I started out good )



Not a great pic but this was on Eilson AFB. Addicted to ADV riding from an early age. Some of my earliest memories (if not my earliest) are dad taking me on a camping an fishing trip on the bike off the back side of post (which is huge BTW) I remember asking him to "pop a wheelie" I was probably 3.

Yep you can say I love ADV riding I guess.

I was about 4 when this was taken in 1952. I recall my mother saying "don't put him on that thing"
The motorcycle was a late 40's Police Harley.

That's maybe 1981? No idea what bike that is or how old I was, but I was born in january 1978. I do know I want that helmet. BAD.
