    I didn't meet my dad until I was 17. Turns out we both ride....a lot. If it weren't for motorcycles, I doubt we could have put our differences behind us. Here are a few pics:

    I knew this thread was going to hurt. This is my son Chris who passed away four years ago. Hug 'em while you got 'em. Don't take one minute for granted.

    Picture of the gate to his base in Ramadi taken from a Humvee (photo was on Jordan's camera) - Jordan and another Marine were killed when the gate and guard shack (large pile of sandbags to right of gate) were leveled by a truck bomb a few days after this picture was taken:

    I like to think that I gave him some motorcycle riding ops on our little dirtbikes and his first 'big bike' experience piloting my TW200 for a short ride in the yard... it sure would be nice to have him around still now that his cousins (my kids) are licensed and riding - I'm sure he would be with them riding his Dad's KLR or VFR. We all miss him dearly.
