    Can't wait for my son to be old enough to ride on the road with me.
    Enjoy every minute of those rides with yours.
    Thanks for sharing a great ride.

    BTW..what were those "pigs ear" looking thing you had for lunch?

    Great ride report. I like the yellow on that bike. You can see it and a new rider needs every advantage these days. Looks like a pretty good paint job also. Have fun with your mom Colton.:clap

    Very close. Sweet Potato Chips. Similar but a little crisper with honey to dip in. Missing the melted butter that comes with the fries tho. :D

    How old is your son?

    Thanks!

    What a heart warming story. I'm glad you got to take this trip with you son. You've created memories that will last a lifetime.

    My son and I took a very long one 5 years ago. He still talks about it. As do I.

    Kyle is 13 and has ridden off road for a couple of years (not right now though... had to sell the bikes). He can't wait for his KLR or a F650 GS. Daddy-o is gonna get a big GS. :evil As a surprise, to feed his moto jones, we are gonna roll up to see the Barber musuem over Thanksgiving. I can't wait for that myself.

    I loved this report. How cool that Colton's mom has a kick ass Duc! This is the luckiest kid in the world to have you as a mom. What a great report and what a great ride. I can't believe he did such a long first ride, those teenagers have tuff buns for sure.

    My little guy is only 2, but is into bikes

    I can't wait to take him on a ride like this. I hope he takes good care of you this mothers day! Thanks for sharing.

    I was just re-reading this... since winter is coming... and I thought "I wonder why Kevin hasn't commented on this picture..."

    I mean, if it was me & the Merc you KNOW I would be dragging him down that road :rofl

    wonderful ride report and pictures
    we rarely see "mother and son" trips... the 2 of you are lucky to have each other (which you already knew, of course.. :D )
    wish there were more
    thanks for sharing with us
