We're raising the first ADVrider all-girl pit crew, eh HalfFast?

Good on all you Dads!

Hi I'm one of those grown up daughters. My father fixed up some pegs under the gastank for my short legs and put a foam rubber cushion on top so I could fall asleep between his arms when necessary. I was 4 and we did the trip from Southern Ontario to the mountains of British Columbia and back with the back of the BMW packed high with camping gear. Every year we chose a new long trek to do in his 2 weeks of holidays. Those are the memories of a lifetime. So good on all you Dad's sharing your love of the ride with your daughters.

How'bout Grampa & Grand Daughter?

Here's a shot of a recent ride with my 10 year old Grand Daughter. The photo
was taken by her dad, my son.

We did a 30 mile loop in the desert east of Indio, CA, and had lunch in the
restaurant at Chiriaco Summit. She's riding great for a 10 year old, and she has
mastered the art of riding deep sand with mini-size tires.

There's 62 years of difference between us, but we have a great time riding together!

You guys are giving me hope for sure. My wife is pregnant with your first and we just found out two weeks agot hat not only are we having a baby, we are having TWINS!!!! Oh yeah, TWIN GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm happy and all, can't wait although I am scared of some things to come. I'm sure both girls will ride as their mom rides offroad and behind me on pavement so they pretty much don't stand a chance.

lots of good stories and nice picks :)

George

Christmastime

Got my 8 yo daughter one of those electric vespa look alike scooter for xmas. Course too cold to ride outside on the snow so she's riding back and forth tween the kitchen and living room (~20'), turn around, do it again, for hours. States as she's riding along "I love the wind in my face..."

Loves riding on the back of the Vstrom too.

Great Thread!

A couple of years ago, I dug out my old MX gear, which was promptly confiscated by my then 2/12 yo. daughter!



A couple of years and another daughter later, I picked up my F650. They both can't wait until they are tall enough for a ride. My older one will ask me to put her on to see if her feet reach the pegs yet. When I have the top box on, she comments on how that will make a great backrest when she gets to go for her ride. Her birthday is at the end of January(she'll be six this year), and says that a motorcycle ride would be a great present. She certainly has the spirit, but January, Michigan, and motos aren't the best mix! If I want to bomb up to the corner store in a t-shirt she says 'daddy, you forgot your coat!'. I have 'work pants' and 'motorcycle pants', 'Jeep boots' and 'motorcycle boots'. "jeep" was the first word she could spell and read(my mom says my first was "Sears"), and now she spots roundels on the road and wonders why other riders' helmets only cover half of their heads.
Anyway, can't wait to get her out on the bike.

My two future riders.


notice the blue, three wheeled FP "motorcycle". you should see how she looks through the turn and leans it at the end of the driveway!


They take turns driving.

She insisted on having her picture taken with the bike on her first day of kindergarden!

Congratulations!

you don't look 72 years old at all.

Motorcycling is the true fountain of youth.

I wish to be as fit as you are at the same age.

No way I'll have something to hide at 72, I'm already half bald at 45.

She's a lucky little girl to have a Grandfather that spends time with her. Some of my best memories as a child were from time spent wth my grandfather. He didn't ride but would happily load me and my bike up in his truck and drive me all over Georgia so that I could ride.

Awesome to know that there is still hope for me being able to ride another 25 years or so.
