    Same here. When I ride, I try to imagine my little girl is on the bike with me. It helps keep me safe. I have a four mile 30mph loop around my neighborhood that I like to ride with my girl on Sundays, when the weather's nice. She's only 3 1/2, but has been riding with me since her first around the block at around 1 1/2. I look forward to riding with her on longer trips in the years to come. She's already asking when she can take a riding class (she loves school), I just took the MSF as a result of a traffic stop...

    Found this thread again - it's still alive. Here's my contribution!
    One of my favorite photos; taken just below Webster Pass in Colorado.

    What a great day!

    Mag has been riding with me since she was 4 years old. We have done several poker runs on the dirt bike together. She knows how to hold on!
    When we take the V-Strom on an adventure now she takes some great pictures and has a blast.
    However she doesn't always like to have her picture taken.

    When I was in college I rode a 1976 Yamaha RD400 (two-stroke). During this time my girlfriend (wife of five years now) had a little experience with riding her brother's dirt bike. I encouraged her to get a motorcycles learners permit. The first street bike she rode was my 1976 RD400. I graduated in 2002 and the bike has been sitting since. Our daughter (first child) is nine months old now and my wife and I do not ride as much as we used to.

    I got a wild hair and spent a Saturday afternoon tinkering with the old RD. After sitting for over six years, the trusty old two stroke started second kick! After calling my wife to the driveway to listen to the sound of the same bike I rode in college, my wife suggested that we give our daughter her first ride.

    How fitting? The same bike we rode two-up when we were in college, the same bike my wife used to ride on the street for the first time would be the bike our daughter takes her first ride with. I was excited.

    It all started with dirtbikes about 8 or so years ago. Here she is on her XR70. After that she progressed quickly to an XR100R, and then was seen flying around on my XR200R. She can't touch the ground, but that doesn't seem to stop her

    Last Columbus Weekend, my daughter and I and two riding buddies did an all day Fall Foliage Loop through the Adirondacks. This was taken at a stop in Blue Mt Lake, at the intersection of Rt 30 and Rt 28.

    She has her permit now, and is signed up for the MSF Basic Rider Course in April.

    Kermit is her mount. This is a shot of her finding the bike in the garage. I got it used. 2008 with 19 miles on it. :clap
