    Thanks Marko. We love Galveston and we are there often. The Sopt is too touristy. I prefer local hangout like Smooth Tony's. Can you recommend a not-so-touristy local hang out burger joint that I should try?

    And I save the Pleasure Pier for the days that she gets to come down with her friend and their parents. ;-)

    Daughters and I are racing the Virginia Championship Hare Scramble Series again this year. I have a running thread with races reports and other riding events for this year posted in the racing threads.

    I blame TBone for this... His story of him and his daughter racing in Florida was our inspiration

    My girls still ride their own (http://advrider.com/index.php?posts/29870642/), but they've now both had their first chance to ride on the back of mine on the street. Both of them: "Faster, Dad!" :)

    These have been some of the best mornings I've had...

    ETA: Do any other Dads have a panic moment every so often "What am I teaching my daughter to do?" I feel like it's cute and fun bonding right now, but when they get older, and they're legitimately fast, and (someday) on the street (yikes), I feel like I'm going to to be wondering what part of this seemed like a good idea.

    My two will be 16 and 13 next week. Both a racing for their third year in hare scramble series and both are pretty damn fast scooting through the trees... In answer to your question about panic moments... oh hell yeah I get them. I just hope that I taught them enough and that they don't ride faster then their guardian angels can fly.

    When she went to x pilots tijuana last year she met barbara, a stunna. That's when her love for the bikes came back. I wasn't able to get her one until her birthday in march. She didn't know I got it and when she saw it she cried. Sobbing crying for more than just a second. So I cried too. A few years ago while in Reno she came to visit fir the summer and we did 18 miles around herlong by the end of the summer. I work on the road so we don't get to ride together yet. [​IMG]

    No worries, we did not go on the real roads in this gear, just around the property. It was enough to get her bitten by the bike bug though! copper canyon 007.jpg

    My daughter just bought her first motorcycle and wanted to go for a short ride. After riding through town, I asked "Had enough?" "Nope, let's keep going" Two hours later and running out of gas (I knew this was going to happen), she learned where her reserve lever is, stop and go city driving, riding in rain and twisties through the local State Park. Smiles didn't stop!
