Anyone ride with their kids?

Anyone else out there ride with their kids? My almost 8yo son and I rode a little over 200 miles this morning, almost all back roads, through a state park, and up onto the blue ridge parkway. I actually have 3 children, girls 13 & 10 and my son who will be 8 in November. All are ATGATT and I have added the Kuryakan adjustable passenger pegs to make sure they get good contact with their feet. Typically we do shorter rides around town, rides to school, etc...this was the longest ride by far that any of them have taken. We have communicators to keep in contact, so I can instruct them on riding position and they can let me know if they need a break...or just so we can chat about what we’re seeing. Just wondering if anyone else out there is taking their kids along on longer rides?

Both daughters are grown. Each year I take both on a lunch trip separately. I take the grandkids for short ice cream trips.

Children rode with us. Now grandchildren ride with us. We do out best to be smart about it. Life in general is a risk. One we feel is worth it with them riding.

Great looking young man and future Harley enthusiast right there!

I have in the past but they are all grown and gone now! It looks like you've gone the extra steps to make sure they are comfortable and more importantly understand THEIR responsibilities on the ride. No greater memories there! Those pics brought back quite a few memories of my own. Nothing more than what you cited... about 100 miles or so. I plan to get the grandkids up on two wheels soon and will go about it the same way that you did.

Beautiful scoot, by the way!

I'm in the same boat.
My daughter started riding when she was 4 1/2.
Got herself a Sporty before she even had her license.

Now she lives in Japan and rides over there.
She'll be 26 in 2 weeks.

First photo was just a day outing.
In the second photo we had been up camping in the Redwoods of Northern California

I sat my daughter on the tank of my Ninja when she was 4 or 5. Had her on the back of the Night Train all the time starting when she was 10. She's been on every one of my bikes since. She's 24 now, and still wants to go riding with me when she visits.

Pic below she was 15 or 16.

My daughter has been riding with me since she turned 5 years old which is the legal age to ride I WA.



Now she has her own bike and can go on rides with me.
