New rider

Maybe someday she will see this country like it was meant to be seen. On a motorbike.








She kept peeking into the garage to see the motorbikes. Told her to come out and she wanted to get on it. At least she sat to drive. Her grandma has always rides as "fender candy" and grandpa does the driving.

Of course typical lady the shiny blinged up Vrod was also a must climb on.

My little niece is getting the itch as well. Haven't had her out on the bike as per Mommys orders but we have had her out on the four wheeler, catch phrase FASTER, FASTER, FASTER. She's figured out the thumb throttle

I like the little hat that you have got on her as well. Is there a way to take a person of her size out for a ride on one of your bikes with you, or does she have to grow a bit bigger in order to do that safely?

I got my first motorcycle ride when I was 5 or 6. My uncle sat me on the tank in front of him and I held onto the handlebars. Not very safe, I know, but he only took me around the block very slowly. And that was when the whole thing started.................

Not very safe, but I have pictures of when I was a baby, still in diapers, literally belted to my Dad, going down the road sitting in front of him.

That was a few... uh... decades ago though!

My kids rode with me when they could keep their feet on the saddle bags, and hang on. I was able to lean back and hold them against the sissy bar too. Short rides, but they are hooked for life too!

that's the good thing about those days, it wasn't seen as being that bad. do anything to that extent these days and someone will probably call child services on you

Oh, there's some crazies out there. Couple months ago this Dad let his six year old son drive his Harley going 45 mph. I think he got investigated by Child Protective Services after the video went public.
