Kid's first ride
This is something I've been looking forward to doing for a while, taking my son for his first ride on my motorcycle. He's almost 8, and he's already 4'8", so he's big enough. He decided he was ready. So to start I just bought him a helmet and gloves. (looks like I'm buying a jacket soon now too!)
Monday was his first ride. We started out just going for a slow ride for about 15 minutes around the neighborhood. He got used to it pretty quick, he didn't want to get off. Yesterday he asked if we could take the bike to his swimming lesson. I'm not taking him on any major roads anytime soon. But, we could easily get to the pool without going on any busy, fast roads. So off we went again. After his swimming we stopped by Timmie's for a treat, then back home again. Again, easily avoiding major roads. He was so excited to go to Timmie's just to be able to be on the bike for a few minutes longer. I've created a monster...he loves it!!!
I think I might have to be a little late for work a couple of mornings before school is out. It's so much cooler showing up at school on Dad's motorcycle than the school bus! ;D
