Luckiest dude on the block

Well, the girl got Kouba links today and lowered the KLR 250. Then we went for a nice 60mi ride to the coast and back. What can I say, super pround, new license, new bike, terrified of traffic but slowly getting used to it.

Kick start enduros...that's bad ass

Good deal! Glad to see you two riding together. Looks like she's got a nice ride there.

I know the feeling having gone on three different trips with my sons when I had a second KLR. They still talk about those trips as if they were yesterday.

I have to make a clarification.
She is my significant other and even though
We are close in age people assume it's my
Daughter sometimes..lol.. She just looks
Better than me I guess.

Its interesting being on the other side and
Worrying about someone you love taking
On a new thing like motorbikes. Having
Said that, she is a licensed pilot and fully
Capable of handling a motorbike with some
Practice and a little advise from her hubby.

Nice to share something you love with the ones
you love!
