    Three girls, two Hondas, one Beemer and a Big Sky twilight . . . . . .


    Looking in the rearview mirror of my big GS, I see the headlights of my daughters following, one on the Honda XL250 and the other on the little 80. The neighbors, out for a walk, give us a friendly wave.

    It's warm as we wend our way along the lakeshore on the gravel road in the beautiful summer dusk.

    We park the bikes in the garage, take off our helmets, hug and Hilary and Merilee go inside to get ready for bed.
    I stay and change the oil in the GS and enjoy a cold beer as I tighten the lowers on the crashbars, in preparation for my ride to Stanley, Idaho day after tomorrow.

    Warm oil and cold beer. Does it get any better than this?

    The hot chicks seem like a value-added bonus. Too bad (in some ways - not others) they're your daughters.

    A bonus until the pubescent boys keep hangin' around them when I want to leave for a ride.

    Thanks, Razorbak.
    It's just one of their off-the-shelf jobbies.

    It's so nice to have you aboard and to come across your wonderfully warm and friendly posts.

    (Now they're really gonna think I'm gay.)

    Cool! I ride a GS and have two daughters. One a Yamaha FJ and the youngest ( vertical challenged ) a Honda Grom. Around town we ride Vespas. Lots of fun....
    Good to you!

    Would be entertaining to hear an update on the three now after all these years:lurk

    Hope they are still riding...
