PIC OF THE WEEK - MY FIRST RIDE

MY FIRST RIDE
I was 8 years old when this picture was taken of my dad posing on his Honda with me and my baby brother. He used to give us rides all the time and I remember them like they were yesterday! In fact, to let you in on the kind of father he really was... he probably wasn't able to sneak off and enjoy his rides as much as he could have cause he always had somebody in tow... mainly me!

I'm so glad I found this picture while I was home. I will treasure these memories forever. I miss you dad... thanks for everything!

Have a great Monday everybody!!

Webster World said...

Great picture. Do you remember...was it a 305 or the 350. They were both little bad ass bikes.

Welcome back.

Great photo.
I don't think my dad ever rode after the war - probably because 5 kids fit in a wagon better than on a bike - but I know he sure missed it, and his 4 sons took up the gauntlet.
Thanks for sharing.

Ann... you'd have thought I struck gold when I found this pic! I WILL treasure these memories... they're awesome.

Mr. M... I feel very lucky indeed!

Webster... We tried to remember, and my brother seems to think it was a 350.

B.B. I've got a few more like it. I can't believe how cool it was to find these.

Dean... how could I not share this! It's were it all began for me.

Dave... I agree!

mq01... it don't hurt to say it again! lol!

Willy... I'm sure you have some hidden treasures of your own, heh?

Canajun... we had a wagon too. Got it right after my brother and I got two more brothers! HA!! Dad never got rid of his motorcycle though. I'm glad!

Steph... I was able to bring a few more of those golden oldies home with me. Yes... I will treasure them forever!

Great pic. I have two pictures of my grandfather on his HD in 1918 and I really cherish them. Here is the url to the pictures - http://motoroz.blogspot.com/2009/09/anybody-recognize-bike.html

Allen... how could I not share this. My legs haven't been that skinny since... well "68! LOL!!!

motoroz... I just looked at the pic of your grandfather. That's a totally cool pic! Sorry I can't help you with the identification either, but what a treasure to have it, heh? I wish I could travel back in time and talk to them while they're that age. Great memories!
