    Don’t have a pic of my dad on a motor, but here’s my 98 year old mom, on my Dyna. She died 4 months after this pic was taken. I had to lift her on the bike, and lift her off of it.

    Sun was bright, so she had her eyes closed!

    She was 4'9" when this pic was taken. (She was 5'0" at her max height...)

    She made "engine sounds" like a little kid, as she twisted the throttle! (Her brother rode/raced speedway in the 1940's.)

    Nope, one of my cousins. I am a little older. The three of us rode out to their farm, 3 miles, on that 150 dream. I sat in front of dad on the gas tank. Great memories!

    As kids Mom and Dad would take us out to El Mirage for the weekend to ride and camp. These photos show Dad on his last ride. He passed in 2009. My son passed in 2018. Great memories. Miss them both.
