Here's a picture of Logan and me on my goldwing. He wasn't too thrilled at first but once we started moving he was into it:action: After the first lap around the block he told me one more time around and the once again after the second time around he says "One more time please" Logan is Tracy sister's boy and he sure is a corker, I got the bruises to prove it today too. Tracy and I had a wonderful ride through the country and then a nice visit with Shannon and Logan and their dog Abby who just didn't care much for me at all. We headed back to a nice ride through the country and got home about sunset.
Ride Safe, Ray and Tracy:waving:

It's how I got into bikes and now my son ride with mewhen ever he can.



My boy is Autistic and loves the whole sensation of this whole bike thing from the petrol smell to the wind noise and the smells and sights you just don't get in tin cans.

That is wonderful that your son enjoys riding with you so much:clapper:
We have friends who have a son who is Autistic and loves to ride with his father when given the chance:action:

My second son is also retarded and is just too small to get on but is itching to join his brother.



Like I said the freedom and joy of motorcycling is overwelming to all, but kids just seem to lap it upin a way only kids can do.



When the world seems stacked against these people who am I to deny any freedom he can get even though there is a element of danger.



Life is all to short

And I can't help but wonder who gets a bigger kick out it,,,,,,,, them, or us?

Two years ago I was riding by a cousin's place. He was standing just off the road watching his horses. There was another fella there with him, only he was in a wheel chair. He was missing both legs from just below the knee. I stopped to say hi since it had been a while since I had seen Frank (cousin).

Well,,, Tom (fella in wheel chair) couldn't help but admire the bike. I don't think he had ever really seen a 1500 up close before. He just kept on commenting how great it must be to ride. I could sense it was coming,,,,,, wasn't sure if I wanted it to come,,,,, but it did,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the question,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

"Would you take me for a ride"

How the hell could I say no????????? It would have distroyed him I think. He assures me he can sit up on it as long as I can help him on. I should mention he has the plastic artificial legs. He was able to stand up next to the bike while I helped to steady him. Then he sits side saddle in the driver seat,,,,,,,,, hands me his one fake leg so he can get it over the other side. I give him a boost and he is in the passenger seat with a big grin. Takes his leg back from me and fits it back on. He was able to keep them on the foot boards as normal for balance.

Went for about a 10 mile ride and he was in heaven. Told me to crank up the tunes. Happen to be going by his friends place who was having a little cook out with others and he asked me to stop so he could show his friends. When they saw thier friend on the back of a bike,,,, all jaws droped. Pictures were taken for proof of the event. I should go visit and see if he has the pics. And take him for another ride.

I got a real kick out of making his day.:)

That's really wonderful, thanks for sharing. I used to work with many physically handicapped folk and sometimes just doing the smallest thing for them would thrill them immensely.

WHAT A GREAT THING YOU DID!!!! Its not only something he will never forget but you will not either!! That is no small thing
you did....it was your time spent doing something for someone that could not do for himself.
