Riding with My Family

OK, so I have to brag a little, or I'm proud, or whatever you want to call it. Last weekend a friend had a family-friendly at his place. He invited quite a few of us, but not near everyone could make it. But everyone from my household showed up and rode their dirt bikes! I didn't think much about it a the time, but now thinking back, it's pretty damn cool. They rode their Honda's while I rode my Suzuki. When we were done I made them pose for a picture because who knows if I'll ever get my wife back out riding again.
Needless to say it was an awesome day!!
Here's a video I mixed up.

I know the feeling. I have fond memories of each of my sons coming on a KLR trip with me. We had a great time together.

Awesome, Family-Friendly video Savage!

What part of Kansas? Trees, Gullies, Hills, even some Rocks!
Only thing I remember is FLAT, wheat and corn and other cash crops.
I have relatives around Wichita. Been a long time since I've been there.

Manhattan. NE Kansas is different than southern and western KS. More green, vegetation, and lovely allergies.

Thank you for the kind comments all.

Here's a video from the last time myself and the kids got out for a good ride while my wife shot some pictures.
We loaded up and went and rode on a Hare Scramble track. I was thoroughly impressed with how good they did riding their little Honda's with subpar suspension and low ground clearance. After this ride I knew I better make some skid plates to keep them from ripping out the oil drain plugs.

Me and the kiddos rode this weekend while my lovely wife took pics. I can't believe how high and far my son and daughter were jumping!


See me on the bottom left at the base of the jump? That's my little 8 yr old girl flying on her stock CRF70. I was shocked!

Another ride with the family and a few friends. I like watching my son help his bud get his bike fired up. He did it 3 times during the day. It makes me proud (because you know how kids can act).
My wife ended up putting 9 miles on the old XR on this day. It's funny because it wore her out (from having muscles all tensed up) and she got a sore on the top of her left foot from shifting.
