They grow up fast!

So many of you have met my son Colten. Today he is off to college. Enjoy them guys. Before you know it they are all grown up!
Seems like yesterday he got the TTR

Now on the WR450. He stuck with that Yami blue..


Grew into a good young man.



Today he starts a new chapter, at least he is in a good area for riding and fishing! Now I just gotta find a day to go to Gunnison...

They do grow up fast, enjoy it. I can't get my son to ride with me much anymore, I guess I'm too slow and old.


NW - is your son staying in a dorm? My son was in Ute Hall last year, it was quite the scene whenever I stopped by to visit...

There are quite a few student dirt bikers, I'm sure your son will feel right at home on his WR!

He is Dolores hall. Has his bike, hunting and fishing stuff stashed at his sisters place.
Gunna miss him, we went riding 2-3 times a week.

Best of luck to Colten! He saved me, cleaning mud with me on Dino. And, all he did for the other stranded bikes. You raised a good kid, Norm. Be proud!

I know the feeling, my daughters have grown into amazing young women!

Very proud of these two, both graduated from college and moving forward with life!

Great stuff. I know you are proud of him. Now, doesn't your daughter go to WSU also? Or am I totally mixed up. I think this thread confirms that bike riders are good parents and have good genes, no?
