Last Wednesday my 19 year old son got his motorcycle license. I sent him through the Ride Chicago school so that he would learn the right way and not my bad habits. I was more nervouse watching him takehis riding test then when I took mine. He got a perfect score. I am really going to enjoy my new riding partner.

I am very proud. It was great seeing him buckle down and work at it. He can be a little cocky at times (19 years old)but he has been showing the bike respect not out of fear but out of smarts. He will be riding either the GL1100 or the BMW K100RT so he knows he better be smart not smartalek about it or he won't ride. Ilook forward to ourfirst trip.

Give that young man a big high five from Florida!!

I can almost remember being 19, I did say almost. Riding bikes back then was alot of fun.

Enjoy the times riding with him.

Congratulations Bob. Sounds like you instilled just the right amount of respect in your boy as well as the drive to learn the right way as well.

Have fun with your new riding partner! :)

Congratulations!!!!

I have a 20 year old son that will be home from college this weekend.... He normally rides his 1983 Suzuki GS 650 L, but this weekend he will finally get a chance to take a spin on my GL 1200 A.. albeit a short spin....

My son also 19 got his liecense last year. We found a higher milage 1100 for him. He rode for a month or so. A co/worker of his was killed on a Harley. He decided he did not want to own a bike anymore. I bought the bike from him thinking it would pass. We sold that bike this spring. He does ride one of my bikes sometimes, but says he does not care for it much.

Excellent news Bob.... at least he won't get a note like on all my school reports.... "could try harder" a 100% is hard to achieve I bet. :clapper:



Have fun with the riding together, don't forget to tuck the keys to the 1800 under the pillow at night from now on!!!!!!:shock::cheeky1::cheeky1:
