So , after i bought my motorcycle my dad remembered he wanted one.

He was after all the man who taught me how to ride, how to slide it around a corner, how to get the front tire off the ground while shifting, and the man who would pace me down the road in his truck, because i thought i had got my dirt bike to go faster (this was before public GPS).


So, this last weekend I went up north and hung out with my family. The trees in northern Michigan are turning colors and it was kinda cold. he had his bike up there, and let me take it for a spin. it was a nice brisk ride.


Here's a picture of his bike..


It's a 1993 Suzuki GS500E 500cc air cooled twin. He's put close to 3000 miles on it this year. Bought the small trailer and wheel chuck to haul it up north on vacations. And, by buying it, has giving him and I a lot to talk about when we visit. It's good to see him interested in something. Growing up, he had to work a lot of hours to provide for the family. Now he's retired and enjoying life. I love it, and him. Now I just need to find time to get a chance to go riding with him.

It is really cool to have motorcycling in the family! :cool: ;) Nice setup, with the trailer and all. :) Get all the riding time you can, with him. Sure wish my Dad and I could have gotten in some riding time before he got up in the years. He's 83 now and not in very good shape. I've got an 80' CB750K w/ a sidecar and hope to be getting him out in it soon. I've also got a 77' CB750A that I want to get going and end up putting the sidecar on it, so I can be a bit more creative in working the 80' 750 over. :D So, like I said, find the time to ride with him while you still have the chance (time flies, you know)
