    It's the real deal. It was a rather spectacular scene. Unfortunately that's the highest resolution I have. :(:

    I know that moneys dont grow up on trees, but now u have really big reason for replace old digicamera.

    Btw, A95 have more than this resolution, about 5.3 Mpix matrix afaik.

    Why you that picture at so small resolution? exif says that this picture was made as 1600x1200, so you lost the originals photo? :(

    Fortunately my ex-wife never had a problem with my daughter riding or flying with me. She's been riding with me since she was 3 years old, and flying with me since she was 9. Now she's 20 and off at college but still likes to ride and fly. Here she is at 13 on the Alvord Desert on some old Trail 90s. And flying her own PPC solo at 16.

    What year is that '90 in the foreground? I just bought one in a box, but it looks more like the one in the back.

    Hmmm, I'll have to dig around on the hard drive. That was taken when I was still uploading from a dial-up, so I never uploaded full size. Who knows, it may still be here someplace. :dunno



    Those old Honda 90s sure bring back some memories. That one in the foreground is just like my first bike when I was about 13. :thumb

    Quality time is impossible to recreate. I remember these times with my father and I hope my children cherish them as I do. My daughter pushes to go for a ride more than my wife does. Its a great feeling.:clap

    I have also enjoyed all the posts on this thread.

    Here is a couple shots of my daughter.

    She to will have better gear when she gets older, and the bikes on the
    trailer are not going anywhere.

    She is only 2 and I have a new one that just came out of the box that is
    3 months old. The oldest, my son is 5. We have been busy, busy, busy.
    But its worth it.

    My daughter, Lucy, prefers to ride her own bike:

    Maybe one day she'll be able to reach the passenger pegs on my bike and leave the neighborhood!

    Here are some pictures of my babies.
    I have 6 kids- 3 sons, 3 daughters.
    1 married, 2 in college for engineering, 2 in high school, 1 in junior high.
    I'm crazy about my kids, but I must admit that there is something very special about daughters. My girls truly are the loves of my life.
    Thats Angel, my 15 year old on my left, and Peanut, my 13 year old on my right.
    This was taken at Crater Lake, Oregon, in August of this year.
    My wife and I trailered our bikes, and we spent 6 days riding over 1000 miles in Oregon and California.
    Don't tell anyone, but we decided it's time for our girls to ride too, so I have an XR250 and an XR100 stashed at a friends' house waiting for Santadad to bring for Christmas.
