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.

New rider coming soon!

This is not really a useful post, instead it is a proud dad sharing about his son.

This weekend my son, Richard, overcame #2 of 4 hurdles towards becoming a licensed motorcyclists.  He attended the North Texas Motorcycle Safety Course and successfully completed the course.  Mother Nature made it exciting by providing some rain.  All of the "test" was on a wet parking lot.
Richard, the Ninja, and the certificate
We really did not have any doubt about it.  He has been around and on motorcycles for many years and has ridden dirt bikes and practiced on his Ninja so he was more than ready for the course.

Practicing a little over 3 weeks before the class
Getting some lean going
Today (4/16/12) we are heading to the DMV to take the written motorcycle test and schedule the riding test.  Just two more hurdles and then a whole new chapter for both of us will begin.  I think it is going to be a great chapter.
