Family Motorcycle Ride - 7k miles
Oldest just graduated high school. Started preparing for a send off trip a year ago. Son got license, daughter got permit (only 15, limited to 250cc in Texas). Been doing training rides; logged about 3-4k miles each to prepare for trip. Got riding gear also for three younger boys that can ride pillion. Two youngest have to ride in van since too small.
Four bikes: My V1k, wife's V650, son's Vstrom 650, daughters' RX3
Van tows two bike trailer. Either son, wife or I drive and tow bike. Daughter can ride as much or little as wants. Son given complete preference whether to ride or drive van; his risk tolerance is lowest of all, and we planned the curviest roads we could find. Pillion passengers also given complete preference whether to ride in van or on bikes.
By the time we finished son rode bike for 400 miles, daughter for 5.5k miles, wife and I for 7k miles.
