Start 'em early

Post by keystiger on Mon Aug 06, 2012 7:47 pm

I had sent this story to a friend of mine who rides (and he and my wife conspired behind my back) with the pics, to get this wonderful tribute to my Grandfather online hope ya'll enjoy or find interesting. Remember the next gen. of riders is coming up, get 'em started early. Very Happy

Thank you Hayweed,
He was a totally amazing man who had seen very very much in his life. Made fortunes and lost them many times over. Being part of the "Greatest Generation" truly fit him.
My Grandfather was at D-Day. My Great Uncle was a Marine who fought at and survived Iwo Jima and my Father was a Medic in Vietnam. Brave men all. Gone but certainly not forgotten.
I have all ready gotten my 2 year old Grandson an electric Kawasaki 4 wheeler (which he loves) and a scooter will certainly follow.....with luck a dirt bike and so on. Its all good. Very Happy Keep 'em rolling. cheers
