Guess who is on her own bike now!

Post by harryball » Fri Mar 04, 2016 9:41 am

My Daughter started off calling the Ural the "Death Trap" but she finally rode in the sidecar and then wanted her own motorcycle. It's not a Ural, but it'll do. It's a Honda Grom.

Make sure you comment on the video and tell her HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

On a hiatus to try out hacking my Harley after owning and loving a 2007 Gear Up, 2014 Patrol, and a 2016 Gear Up. If a Harley/Hannigan rig doesn't make me feel like my Urals did I will be in the market for a black with white pin stripes Retro.

Very cool mom and dad! Next holiday get her the factory shop manual and a starter tool kit. Had a friend in grade school, Sue F. whose brother was a Norton freak, Typically she was always underfoot and in the way. So Keith put her to work on his Nortons. By the time She was in high school she was one of the best Norton tuners on the west side of Detroit. :)

I just love how oblivious she was to the bike in the garage! Should build her confidence nicely, then you may have to start taking turns with the Urals! Think she'll be up for the ride to CRAP in May? Your family might constitute a parade if she is...
