    Wow, I'm really envious of those that have the opportunity to ride with their folks.
    Never got the chance, myself. :waysad

    Your Dad looks great, DD.

    Damn DD - you are a lucky man.

    Never had a chance to take a bike trip with my dad. He did have a hoot though riding a few of the bikes and cars I have owned.:thumb

    He may be eighty-two, but has more hair than you.:lol3

    It's a very inspirational report. Thanks for posting.

    I agree. What a great report.

    Funny thing is that, during my most recent trip, I felt convicted to plan a trip with my dad. This report just adds fuel to that fire. :D

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great report! :clap My dad and I rode together when I was in my teens and 20's but he gave up riding soon after (although he didn't give up waterskiing until he was 75). Ohio has a lot of good twisties, particularly down in the SE where the Big Muskie bucket lies. Let more of us know when you're going to do this again. Hell, it might turn into a caravan!:wink:

    I rode with my dad for the first time last year... that is a pretty cool feeling no matter how you dice it.

    I am wondering how you managed to get pics of you 2 riding simultaneously... who was the 3rd party?

    Bump, I'm apparently stalking you online' I had to search your posts in this forum to find the recent one about your fly and ride trip, and I found this one. What a neat ride. Makes me wish my dad and I had any interests in common.... :cry

    @dragoon @Rider I thought you'd like to know...

    John, I'm sorry to hear that. At least he didn't get cheated in terms of years but it doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye.
    Hang in there, buddy!

    Sorry to hear your father passed. I know you have the memory of the trip together, but also a lot more. I'd bet he's real proud of you. Having seen pics of him, I can tell he loved you, and was loved.
    When you are ready, let's ride!
