    Hahaha! That's funny. Digging up pics......
    The only way I could post a pic of my dad on a bike
    is if I dig HIM up and sit him on the seat.
    He hated bikes and wouldn't even look at mine while
    he was alive.

    Bummer bro, sorry about that. My dad almost lost his head with my mom when he helped me buy my first street bike! She was not happy. Then again my dad has almost died many times on a motorcycle throughout the years.

    My dad has never ridden, and has suffered for the last few years from dementia and rarely smiles anymore. We were never that close before anyway, but since his descent, talk of motorcycle travel and dogs are the two things that seem to perk him up, so I took my new CB1100 over the other night. This is a pic that I will never forget.[​IMG]

    Wow man that is great. I'm glad you found a medium that helps bring him around. I've had relatives with dementia and that is a hard one to deal with.

    My 91 year old dad is being moved into assisted care next week due to dementia. He was always against motorcycles and fast cars throughout my life. I'll just hope my son will see this post and maybe post a few pics of me on my bikes some day. I raised my son to live life and have fun while he is here. I was 54 before I bought my first bike and I bought so I could ride with my son. I think my dad missed out on a lot of fun due to his old ways.

    Very cool! My parents went to Sebring for their honeymoon in `58. I would have to dig a bit to find a photo of him on one of his Indians but I have loads of photos of him in an MG.

    My Godfather David, Dad And Gus Eherman ran Sebring, Lime Rock & were early racers at "The Glenn" and pioneers of SCCA . Dad & David were some of the JS Inskip crew back then.
    The name in the upper left Mike Eaton if you do a search for Mr. MG David Ash you will get to the MGA (white #59) that Mike & his dad have. David also built the MG MOTO on a TD chassis and ran Bonneville with the Castrol MG-EX 179 will Phil Hill There all gone now but a great era for racing cars and motorbikes!!!
