All I have is dirt bikes for the kids, but my buddy has built a couple of awesome custom trikes. Here is one of them he calls "Roadkill".

That reminds me of a buddy of mine that got a sporty years ago. His wife made him sell it after a year, but she said he could get another one someday. He never will.

His mistake was buying a bike that wasn't really practical for toting her along as well. My wife was good with the bike after she learned how much fun it was.

Jesus. I got into bikes to get away from my wife. Worst case; she comes along, wares a helmet, and the wind and exhaust are too loud to hear her.

Pretty much both. He is a big pansy. That's a generalization about the guy, not just about the bike. The guys went out one night when we were in our twenties. One guy had a convertible, etc. We ran into the pansies dad, and dad hinted around about his curfew. Long story short, he had to be in by 10:30, ruining the night for the rest of us. His dad called him a "wuss" in front of all of us...Lmfao

She didn't have much interest, except pointing her finger.

Was driving on the interstate this afternoon with my 11 year old daughter on our way to meet my brother and his family for fathers day dinner out. A lady on a sportster ( I think) passed us wearing a very bright hot pink jacket and had bright pink lightning bolts on her helmet. We had spent the day chasing parts for my 2 old bikes so bikes had been the main topic most of the day.

The bike also had a flashing led light above the taillight for visibility.

She asked about the flashing light, so I explained that many car drivers don't always see bikes and the light made them more noticeable, I also told her that was the reason for the extremely bright jacket.

She looked at me kind of dubiously and said " I know another reason, it's reeeeaaaaly cute.

I guess in spite of my best efforts she is going to be a girlie girl!!

Although at summer camp she enjoyed archery so I am going to encourage that hoping it will turn into an interest in shooting.

Picked up my bike today at like 1pm. They didnt have all the parts in so they could only do the exhaust, air cleaner and the 2up seat. Im gonna keep the boards and the stock bars. Its a very comfortable ride the way it is. Put about 70miles on it today.
