I am an ordinary guy who enjoys riding motorcycles. I love riding all makes and models. I love short rides, long rides, and multi-day road trips. I post reviews about motorcycle gear, motorcycles, roads, restaurants, sights, gadgets and more. The Motorcycle Facts,Trivia and History page has a lot of good info. Be safe and enjoy the ride, Oz.

The Ninja hits the parking lot!

The Christmas morning surprise was great, but a busy schedule and weather issues it took us a while to get the Ninja to a parking lot where my son could do some riding.  Finally on MLK day the time had for some riding.
Looking good
We took the Ninja to a local park parking lot that was not busy.  Only a few people were there for soccer practice, with kids not much bigger than the ball, and a few on one side visiting the playground.
Keeping his eyes on where he wants to go
He maneuvered around the parking lot well.  Never dropped it and only killed it once.  If all proceeds as planned he will get his driver's permit on Feb 27th, take the motorcycle safety course on March 10th & 11th, get wisdom teeth extracted on March 12th, and take motorcycle license test on March 16th.
Getting a little lean with the bike

Great start in a new chapter of life
Then the real fun begins!  More post will follow from a proud dad.
