Good for both of you Nash. may you have many hours of riding fun together.
When we were stationed in Germany, I used to take my son to school on the bike as often as I could, he loved each and every trip. He has had a number of his own bikes since he turned 18, and the other day he told me he was starting to like the HDs now.
The object in life is not to arrive in a pristine well taken care of body; rather it is to slide in sideways, body thoroughly used up, a drink in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming "That was one HELL of a ride!!!"
