Daughter's first ride!

My daughter needed to get to her "author's night" a little early, and since I just got the kids mc jacket from the flea market here, it was time to take her on her first "old school" ride. 3.5 miles of dirt and 3 miles of pavement. She loved it, and I did too



No need to comment on her riding gear, btw (the gloves are on the saddlebag). She was in way more danger, relatively speaking, riding her bike through Scituate, MA over Memorial Day weekend. For reference, that is the r100rs I traded for my g/s with the DR forks. After cutting the windshield a few inches and putting on k75s bars, I'm loving it!

Awesome. That is a great feeling ... I take my 5 year old to pre-K (1.5 mile Round Trip) .. she's a hero when she shows up

That's cool

I took my 6 year old son for a ride last week, but it was shorter and on the back roads to town only 5 miles or so (I suspect that for many of you my "main roads" would be considered your "back roads." )He was sitting in the parking lot of the cumberland farms, sitting backwards on the bike (parked on the centerstand), resting against the tankbag, feet crossed up on the passenger saddle, enjoying a slushie. He looked soooo cool and happy. I'm still kicking myself for not having a camera, but I think that image is locked in my brain anyway.

I still think I might get a sidecar for longer rides in case they snooze by mistake...

Great to see your daughter all kitted up for her first ride, it reminded me of when I used to ride with my dad. It would have been about 1964 and I would have been going on 4 years old, and I would sit on the tank of his BSA B33 behind the screen he had fitted. No helmet, no gloves and just an ordinary coat. Thing was, nobody thought anything of it.
