Sunday Trail Riding With the Family

Every time that we go out trail riding as a family, I come home with a little more amazement about how children learn to do things.

Riding along behind Chloe I’m so fascinated by watching her pick her lines through the terrain, making the decision of which mud she felt she could handle or which she should avoid. But, most of all there is a confidence that I really admire. A kid has the ability to just take everything in stride as it comes their way.

Have you ever been dusted by your own kid on a dirt bike? It’s the greatest thing ever. Cracks me up every time.

The big kids were out playing, too.

They amaze me for nearly the same reasons.

I on the other hand continue my streak of just falling over when there is nothing but air under one foot. My riding is much less glamorous and exciting than the folks I ride with. Pretty soon I think they’re going to outfit my helmet with a dunce cap attached to the top of it.

These motorcycles… I tell ya. They’re such a great way to share time with the people in your life. You learn so much more than just getting from point A to point B. <3

    It was another awesome day out there! You give yourself too little credit. I heard you say you fell once? Your a bit more sure footed then I happen to be on the dirt. I have the tendency to just grab throttle and end up on my rear more often then not.

    And haven’t you noticed all the things you have been doing as compared to a year ago? Your not even batting an eye no matter what the terrain is! Your doing just great don’t discount yourself!
