    I adopted my daughter when she was 8, she is now 22. Her mother and I are no longer together but she is still the love of my life, and yes she calls me Dad :D If your around long enough I'm sure she will call you Dad too

    Followup post. She got her license and we headed to Big Bend in the RV trailering the bikes. I'd call it mixed results. She rode great and there were some high points, but the weather was less than optimal (cold, cloudy, windy). We'll see how it goes in the future, but with her off at college much of the year it may be a while before she gets enough seat time to enjoy the bike.

    I am trying to teach her some general rules:

    1. Always work hard and don't be happy with the first result. Go for the best solution always.

    2. Being polite, nice and respectful doesnÂ’t necessarily mean being uncool.

    She would probably be upset that I posted it because it's not the best pic of her.....

    So I found this thread and thought cool. Then I started looking/reading and in between wiping my eyes and having to stop (getting to be such a boob in my 'old' age), I have managed about a third of it; the rest will follow. Thanks to the OP and all who have contributed. So here is my bit. There is nothing quite like the love a good dad has for a daughter, perhaps no more or less than other true love; but different none the less.
    So... when this one was born (1988) I gave up the street bike.

    But we did manage to get in a few 2 wheel adventures..., have always had at least one bike of some sort, since I was 9.

    Then a son came into the picture. And girl/boy twins. A few moves, career change 6 more years of school for me.
    And in 2002 we restarted like this...

    An ode to the boys.....

    Take/Make time, it is all we have; a limited amount, and who knows how much for each of us. Teach your boys to cook and sew, your girls to shoot, wrench and spit:D; keep them busy, love them deeply, show them passion in living a good life.
