I've loved riding ever since i was little, and recall complaining to my dad about being the passenger, when i perfered being the rider. I can tell it scares my dad when i tear down the driveway with the Hawk (and even the DR)
But I know he trusts me enough. Riding has been my outlet and my joy through the years. plus, riding with my dad is just a bonus!

That is so cool. Glad you joined in and I hope you tell your dad what you said here. He will be a very happy man to hear it. I wish my daughter had got into riding but it is not for everyone.

Be Safe,
Michael

Took a quick spin the other day, and Juliet decided to take after me. She grabbed "The Yellow Book" sat in the bathroom and proceeded to read until I came back.

Knee;

Your daughter is adorable.

I'm so glad she is doing so well.

I'll bet you guys have an extra special bond because of how she was when she came into this world.

I look forward to seeing the pictures of her grow up, and follow in her daddy's footsteps.

It's funny how watching them grow up reminds us that we are getting old! Mine's 13 and I know she'll be 18 and off to college before I realize it.

It goes by in the blink of an eye.

some of you may be familiar with my products and group buys on ADVRider, some of the "issues" my customers have faced are due to the family turmoil. This is the first time I've mentioned it...

So, my question is; how do you get on with everyday life. I find myself wandering, not paying attention and wondering WTF to do next. I don;t forsee custody being an issue, unless I move back to California, somthing I may due to get my head and business, back on track. However, being away from my kids for the day, today (yes singular) isn't what I'm looking for, I need my kids!

How did you guys cope?

no adultery issues per se, just life and economics.... I love my wife but the constant termoil has just broken me down and I don't think she'll ever be the same...
Day to day, my friend, day to day. Time is the only thing that will heal this wound. For sure, for me it was the toughest thing I ever had to go through in my life.
Main thing is - whatever you do, maintain contact with those kids. Make SURE they know you care, that they are the most important people in your world. Be there for them when they need you! Years from now you'll be glad you did.
