I (as guess we is better just in case the better half reads this someday) bought my oldest son his first bike when he was 16. It was a sharp Suzuki intruder. He rode it for a couple seasons then was basically given his grandpa's VTX. Technically he bought it but the price was so good it basically was given to him. Shortly after he decided he was more into speed and has been riding crotch rockets for a couple years. I wanted him to ride for many reasons. I think riding makes you a better driver. We used it as motivation to do well in school. And selfishly I was hoping it would allow us to spend time hanging out as he was at that age where hanging with dad wasn't happening very much. Even though we didn't ride together much I have a few memories. He told me on father's day he wants to sell his rocket and get a shark. He's almost 21 now and has a serious girlfriend. He wants a bike he can cruise and be comfortable on. I may be getting my hopes up but maybe my dream of riding with him more will come true. How awesome will it be to roll with my son in a school of sharks!!!! He won't have a ton of money to spend but I think we will be able to find him a solid bike to start the mod process.
