This is the greatest thread I've seen anywhere in a LONG time. I'll be bringing forth pics of my 17mo CaeliBug real soon now.

(she dances everymorning when I kickstart my bike. It rocks the free world)

What an amazing thread!

I was so excited to get my 14 year old daughter to hop on the back of my BMW F650GS. We went out and I bought her the pink helmet and gloves that she wanted. Then, when the time came to go for a ride, she just wasn't interested. I think she was a bit nervous and scared.

But finally, on Father's Day this year I talked her in to going for a ride around the block. When we came back to the front of the house and stopped she said, "Can we go around the block again?" So off around the block we went. Then she said, "Keep going." We headed off down the road for a few miles and stop to measure the situation. She tells me to keep going.

I only get her every-other weekend so our riding time is not much. But when we have gone out for rides, it has been a lot of fun. I thought the last thing she would like is the highway, but to my surprise it's her favorite.

Thanks for starting this thread. I've really enjoyed reading all of the posts and it's nice to see us fathers spending time with our daughters. Cheers!

I am lucky...not only do I get to ride with my daughter, but my whole family.
Street or dirt they are all game.

I just picked up a TTR-125L for her and my wife to ride with my son and I.

This is from a 3 day trip down the Oregon coast.
First trip of any distance with the kids and they just wanted more.

This summer we are hoping for a trip to either Oshkosh for AirVenture or back east to visit my family.

My daughter (16 later this month) won't ride on our bikes, won't touch or bikes, or even look at them.

Not sure if she hates them for some reason or if they just can't be cool because her parents ride.

I am envious of y'all whose children want to ride on your bikes. Enjoy it/

Sadly, as all women know, that curse remains for many years to come.... A real trooper.

Fortunately, "Thunder Chicken" was aboard, looking out for our welfare!


Thunder Chicken I love it

There seems to be a few VFR 'big list' types here...

Congrats on the little one Nate I'm up to three as of 18 days ago (girl, boy, girl).

My 3.5yo daughter had her first moto ride on Saturday at the Sydney Motorcycle Show - aboard a Yamaha PW with a rider behind her. They dressed her in jersey, pants and helmet, she looked great! and loved it. Pics to come.

That Riding Belt is a fantastic idea!
When my Dad took me on a long ride into The Rocky Mopuntains, once, he stopped to buy rope to tie me to him....This was in the '70's....
He tryed to keep me awake by hitting me on my leg... I would just get pissed and hit him back LOL.....Thank You Dad!!!!!

What an incredible thread!! I started reading this thread at 7:30 am and just now finished!! I can't express "the love" i am feeling right now...u gents are all amazing.

Instead of motobikes, i rode horses behind my dad early on. He was always an adventurer and my memories are crystal clear of those early days. Now he is in and out of dementia. Cherish those special moments...sadly they can be forgotten.

Thanks to all that have posted here...this thread is a real treat!!

Ca license

Each state has it's own licensing requirements. In California, you need to have a regular license to drive a car first, then a motorcycle certification in addition to it. I think the fee is $10.

Did I detect red hair and freckles under the helmet? Cute.
