Smile For Dads and Daughters

OK folks, listen up-
Here's a place where we can showcase the road trips we take with our beloved daughters.
And if we have daughters who DON'T ride, it's ok--
We still want to see you with goofing around with them too!
I'm posting my best photos first, and will continue to post pics as our trips happen.
My wife and I both ride, and our daughters always ride with us.
My 13 year old, Brownie, rides behind Mom on her Marauder 800, and my 15 year old, Angel, rides behind me, usually on my XR650L, but we'll soon be sharing a 2007 Bandit Twelfiddy.

My first pic is me with my girls at Crater Lake, Oregon, August 2007. We spent a week riding all over southern Oregon and northern California.
Second is my girls on a ride to Mt. St. Helens, September 2007.
Third was taken at Garnet Ghost Town, near Missoula, Montana, 2006.
Fourth is Angel near the end of a 500 mile day, somewhere in Idaho. 2007.
Last is Angel tooling around a parking lot on my Radian.
It will be her 17th birthday present.

So step up, everybody.
Let's see those beautiful girls!

Re: For Dads and Daughters

Darling Daughter on the back of the Dakar as we pulled into the parking lot at The Shed in Edom.



Outside of the East Texas Burger Company pie run in Mineola.



She didn't seem to understand that this was a PIE run, not a cake run.

They brought her pie first, so here she is finishing her meal.

Per the intent of the original poster, we'd like to keep this particular thread focused just on the Father/Daughter relationship. However, there is nothing wrong with starting other threads about specific relationships or something more generic like I was hinting at.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: For Dads and Daughters

This is an old pic.



My daughters haven't ridden with me before because they have been too young. My oldest is 8, middle is 7, and youngest is 4. I took the bike out to get it warmed up and my wife said "why don't you take the girls around the block?" I said sure.

We put a jacket and helmet on them and I went around the block with them oldest to youngest. I went slowly but gassed it a few times to make it more fun for the older 2. With the youngest i didn't get out of first gear. When my wife took her off the back she was crying. My wife said "oh were you scared?"

Her reply was, "Daddy didn't go fast enough!"


She scares me.

Re: For Dads and Daughters

My daughter gets rides so often she's pretty tired of it, really. I take her to school and pick her up almost every day on my R90/6. Thinking about it, however, I realized I have only one photo of her on one of my bikes. So I guess this will have to do. She's about 10yo in the photo. She's 16 now.

Re: For Dads and Daughters

My daughter is now old enough (16yo) -- and tall enough -- where she can straddle both my XS650 and my R90/6 flatfooted. She's already dropping some big hints. Dunno if I'm ready for this yet.

Hey! That's really cool you fathers are getting your daughters involved in this. Even if they don't take up riding, it will be nice memories for them

Re: For Dads and Daughters

Here is me and my youngest (Thing 2) on our famous Missouri trip last summer. Arkansas has a minimum age restriction of 8 years old, so we had to ride around through OK into MO. At the time of this photo, she was 6.

Re: For Dads and Daughters

My son started riding on the seat in front of me when he was 2. I found a super small helmet with padding for a smaller head. I had a 1982 Kawi Gpz 550 at the time, he would lean up over the gas tank and hold on to the bars. He held on like a tick on a houndawg. I never heard him once say anything but faster daddy. He and I ran up a lot of miles on that Kawi, he developed into a really good rider. Only problem came up when I worked a terrible motorcycle accident on East 51st and the sight of the poor dead guy got me so scared about having a incident with Wes on the bike with me, that I sold the bike and quit riding for about 6 or 7 years. I was not going to be the one who killed my own son on a motorcycle. Later on after his mom and I seperated I bought a primo 82 Honda Nighthawk 750 from a newly christened Aggie Vet graduate for a song. Resumed riding career from there on. Son later on started riding with me again off and on. I know this is about daughters but I never had one so the boy will have to do for now.
