Scoonman, yer a lucky feller.
Yes, I am!
Good god, I feel ya. I've got two daughters, and I just bought them an MX helmet yesterday. They're always asking me to ride the motorcycle. The youngest (2.5) doesn't distinguish between "bicycle" (in the Burley trailer) and "motorcycle" (up in front of me), but her excitement is off the chart for both.
Thanks for posting this. Absolutely beautiful.
Send Mom over to my blog...12 is a perfect age!
My daughter is 13 now and two years ago was so opposed to me getting a bike that it was a concern. Now she is asking for a ride. I think she sees how much I enjoy riding that she is curious as to what is going on. I have been a little hesitant, but after reading this thread I am getting her a helmet on Saturday.
While it is not a perfect solution, we are currently using strap on MX pads for my son. IIRC, they are Thor brand. The elbow/arm pads fit easily enough under a denim jacket, and the knee/legs guards are easily donned and doffed. Figured with a 9yo boy, we would be buying new jackets and pants every near in the very near future.
My daughter Rebecca (age 7) and I at the East Coast Tiger Ride-In.
Just wanted you to know about a little adventure I had with my girl this past weekend. I don't want to post about it twice, so I thought I'd just post this link.
reminds me of the time my wife pulled into a grocery store parking lot with the kids (1 boy and 2 girls [ages - 1, 2, 3]) and the middle one (then 1.5) saw a guy on a motorcycle that looked a lot like one of mine drive by and she got real excited and called out for me. she even tried to run after the bloke but he just wouldnt stop. she was heartbroken for the rest of the day.
heres me with the crew.
Just taught the 11 month old to say "vroom" when she sees a motorbike. It comes out as "wrum!" but is still cute as hell. Needs no coaching, she just belts it out
Fun thread! So far our rides are all on bicycles, but there is an XL75 sitting in the garage waiting
Both girls do love sitting on my big bikes and making motorcycle sounds though, here's my youngest on the EX last week right before it's new owner came over to pick it up. She was the last one in our family to 'ride' it.
Great thread, my daughter is 11 now and is a little jealous of me & her mother taking little trips around the state so I'm looking forward to the time she and I might have a ride. She's still daddy's girl, but those days don't last forever so I'm enjoying them before she turns 16 and I embarrass her!
you can still latch on to someone with kidz and be that Weird Uncle.
Wow! 48 pages and 719 posts later, I just had to share a few photo of my favorite riding partner. Our Nikki-Doodle started riding around 6 and now at 20years old, its all I can do to keep her in sight out on the trail. Were about to embark on a new adventure called Dual Sport Bikes.
The pictures are great, I like this thread cause it is bringing families back
Nice job, Dad (and welcome n00b), that's a special kinda riding partner you got there. Doncha just love seeing kids out playing with Dad and the moto toys?
Thanks for the warm welcome Putts. This thread really hits home and family.
We all grew up riding together back in the 60s and 70s and really want to share this tradition with the next generation of riders too.
I caught this one of you two----she was a real treat that weekend and such a trooper!!! Beautiful too with that blonde hair and dimples!!
A Congratulatory Bump for this thread reaching its first anniversary today, and remaining active over the whole year.
Well done, Don and all the other contributors.
