    His first ride on the scrambler, 200 miles not bad for his first real experience on the road.

    Wish I had that TT, I rode the wheels off of an XT350 same vintage with my boy from 2-4yrs sitting in front of me, I guess thats why he rides today.

    Perhaps the motorcycle gene may have been recessive, but the "Dad loves me and invests in my life" always gets through on the journey from boy to man.

    One of his first rides with me. Seems like yesterday and now he's 14 already. Bittersweet thread for me. Have a girl and two boys and never feel like I get away from work as much as I should to create the memories.

    I think he rides just to spend time with me/make me happy. He has Asperger's (high functioning autism) and enjoys finding unique stuff in the desert as he rides, stops, rides, stops.

    No, I haven’t written a report but I’ll give you the abbreviated story here.

    A10D00B0-873D-441C-A957-BB80AE9F6565.jpeg

    The Boy graduated and we flew to Kathmandu, rented two bikes and rode out. He’d only ridden three days in his life on small bikes in England.
    We took a day trip up to Nagarkhot, a couple of hours east of Kathmandu (KTM), to acclimatise him to ‘developing world’ driving. It was pretty mad, though with some rules, and he handled it pretty well.
    We rode up into the hills and away from the smog and bustle.
    KTM has had a major earthquake since I was last there so the roads and infrastructure are SHATTERED but the people are lovely.

    Back to KTM for an admin day then off to Pokhara, the lakeside resort town further west. The first twenty odd miles to get out of the KTM basin are just ludicrous! Smashed roads, traffic going round blind corners on both sides of the road at the same time in dust-outs where the visibility is virtually nil, cattle walking and sleeping in the roads, etc.

    The trip is about 100 k’s which in those roads is two easy days or one looong day. The roads were very crowded as it was the day before elections and everyone had to go home to their home villages to vote. Utterly chaotic traffic except they were all nice and waving to us, and no one was angry.
    Chaos, as in the absence of order, but wonderful.

    We got there at dusk, found a cheap place and had a great few days with some side trips then headed back. If I were doing it again I’d ride up to Jomsom from Pokhara, which is all the way up the Annapurna circuit. Google it.

    Thirty odd years ago my father, brothers and I did the same trip and I have the same photo, except me taking my Dad.

    Happy days.

    who gives a crap?
    Had a blast in chadwick last weekend. Im the fat one in the pic with the 3 of us, and holding the camera in the pic on the bridge. One is 20, the other 17. Both been riding from about 5 on. I cannot keep up anymore. Best times of my life riding with them. I was worried it is coming to an end, with them growing up, but we ran across a family at chadwick who was still riding with their 60some year old dad! So theres hope for me too!
