Ok well, I had to ask this question with regards to all the Vstrom riders out there who
ride not only with the wife or girlfriend but sons or daughters ?
My son who now is 27 this year, was taught by me to ride a modified lawn tractor at the age of 4.
From there I let him progress to mini bikes, go karts, Then pocket bikes, And finally I purchased
him a well used Honda Rebel 450. Not a bad bike but in fixing it we soon found out what a not so good choice
it was. Parts were incredibly hard to find. Fast forward to 2016 and he was ready to purchase a big bike.
A used low mileage Vstar Stryker 1300. Very nice bike and only 8 K miles. Since then he has put about 4 K on it.
But now he is working as a long haul truck driver and his bike stays here at home while he's out driving around the USA.
Whenever he comes home, About once every 3 or 4 months he always ask if we can go for a long bike ride.
He full well knows the feeling of riding with family. And we both enjoy each others company , We'll stop at a biker
bar and shoot some pool... or hit porkies for some bar bq, He will be coming home soon and it will be the first time he's
seen the new Vstrom 650 I just got.
I got tired of him smoking me with my 18 year old Vstar 650 so I upped the anti a bit with the new bike.
He might still smoke me but I'll be in his rear view mirror not clean out of sight.
Riding with someone like your own son or daughter means you have become a mentor and you must find it in you
to make the bond a lesson learned as well.
If you ride with your Son , Daughter or the Wife, Girlfriend, etc . Tell us about your adventures...
