A New Inmate is Hatched

My son Devon (age 10) has graduated from the Yamaha PW and cow pastures to a Kawasaki KE 100 and the Kaiamichi Mountains in south east Oklahoma. He complted his first ADV ride today !!!!






Here he comes





And there he goes!!!!





My bike with a new rack and tool box installed, worked Great!!!





Break Time, I get him out of the house, on a bike, and in the mountains,
and he still breaks out the game boy to play video games





Finishing up and he is still in one piece





Packing it up









A good ride ends with fries and a root beer!!!!





We covered around 25 miles of fire roads, he hit 3rd gear and a top speed around 30mph and cruised around between 20-25 mph. He even led the way back to the truck when done without looking at the GPS I had him carry. It was only his second time on a bike with a clutch!!!! I'm very proud of him!!!!!!! Looks to be the first of many more rides!!!

I would love to do the same with my boy, but over here in France if the cops catch him/us (no license or insurance) they can and would seize his bike and I'd get a world of problems too.

Well done possibly one of the few ways to lure them away from computer games.

We are very lucky!!! The area we were ridding is extremly remote and they care more about if you have paid for your land access permit

Here in Oklahoma the kids can get there motorcycle license for 250 cc or less when they turn 14

I have ridden a few places that were great,and have rode with some great people. But my greatest rides are the ones taken with my son.
He started riding at 6 and is 13 now we don't get to ride as much as I would like but he has other things going on,right now it's football season he's plays wide reciever and also plays a very good cornerback on defense.

He talks about us doing some dual sport rides when he gets his license,I hope he still feels that way when the day comes that we can. He likes hearing about my rides and wants to enjoy them with me,which makes me feel pretty good.
