at least you know what she'll ride when she gets older...
I am deeply disturbed by that picture, alas I am not sure why:eek1
All above board.
Skinny was on her way to the annual charity toy run-hence the bear. As for the rest, her choice.
My 15 yr old loves it. It's exactly what she'd ride and exactly what she'd wear while doing so. If she could find Pointe shoe riding boots that would be icing on the cake.
Purple turtle i will need to re-appraise my thought processes regarding what choice of bike I should show my 14 year old, big outdoor muscle bike in Pink with dads wee girl riding it, i still cant quite grasp that picture though, its like getting punched by a very large man with very large hands wearing nail polish, this has possibilities,
What is interisting, is that she sold the bike to a man. Now, I do not know if he had it resprayed. :huh
Made me do a flashback, same exact bike my mother had. Color, fairing and side cases. She put it down when on a trip to Canada, early 80's messed her knee up pretty good. Bikes got hauled home in a U-haul. Ended the trip for her and my father and the other couple riding with them.
My 6 year old asked to get on the bike for the 1st time. I was happy to help her on. She is not ready to ride (a bit afraid of it) and is still to short to reach the passenger pegs. Maybe next year.
I've enjoyed posting in the thread before, seeing as there is no Mothers & Daughters thread - super small group.
My first post is here
As a result of that trip, we were on the cover of AMA in October 2008.
Last year my daughter was applying to colleges, the trip was the basis of her college essay I encouraged her to submit it to AMA; it was printed in October '13 issue. For that follow up we went on a photo shoot, of course, I had to bring the same bike, and I completely cherish this two up picture of us.
Wow. Good on you, Gail. Congratulations on a truly enviable relationship with your daughter. Thanks for posting, and for the link to your first post. A great read! Please feel free to post here any time you want!!
My daughter and youngest of three children, is now 23 and without doubt the best pillion I have ever had on my bike. Now waiting on Grand Daughters - and can't wait. (Shhhhh -did I say that?)
that's a great story. I think you've accomplished just that what I'm after for.
I can only hope and dream of learning my 2 girls to feel the same about life and motorcycling.
Great story, so glad I clicked on it.
awesomeness will run deep in that girl, as well as her mom.
'80 CB750K with bags, trunk, and fairing with a set of homemade arm rests we just needed to pick up a pair of Sena's motorcycle headsets so we could talk about the deer, Christmas lights, and other interesting things we pass on the road. Here we are trying them out:
She's not fond of her little dirtbike, but she'll ride with me on the CB750 and the GSXR all day long. We're looking at doing some motorcycle camping this spring.
Had a good Thanksgiving holiday!
I got a set last year for just this reason as well. Probably the best moto-accessory purchase I've ever made. Gotta love hearing them having fun, plus the ability to warn them about upcoming maneuvers, bumps and such is priceless.
So, I've been following this thread since it started, but just now decided to share. These are my two chicas sometime last year. (now 9 and 7 years old)
She now has matching moto-pants as well. That helmet was a bit too big on her at the time, but fits well now.
And I've got this 5 year old joker as a chaser, who fits all the gear my youngest daughter wears fortunately:
They just go on neighborhood rides with me for now, as I need to get some peg risers and proper boots for them before I feel comfy taking them out on longer rides.
I'm in the process of gradually accumulating gear to take them on some dad+1 camping rides in the (hopefully) near future. Looking forward to that immensely.
Thanks for sharing, everyone. I've enjoyed all the stories and pictures over the years. Now back to lurking for me...
What gear is that for the girls?
It is all Held stuff. I bought it on closeout directly from the Held North America website. Jacket and pants were ~$80 each and gloves were ~$40. All of it is exceptionally good quality for the price. They have CE armor and removable liners...very nice stuff. Makes me jealous every time I gear them up and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I bought the setup pictured as a birthday present to myself last year so I could take them further than the driveway without worrying about them so much. Picked up a second smaller set of the pants for the younger two this summer.
My daughter started riding with me when she was five and began overnight touring trips with me when she was eight. Great times together that both of us will always remember!
Too small for her jacket - heading out for an early spring camping trip in 2008.
With her brother on a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway in 2010.
Across the Cherohala in late winter 2011.
Last May at the Bixby Bridge.
