That is one of the coolest vids we have of Garrett posted here. I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, might I suggest.........

Right click and choose "open link in new window" OR "save link as..."

Each of these allows me to view the vid. I am using Firefox.

Sorry Mike, I didn't mean to get you upset.

Its just when I feel kinda down, I like to watch the shear joy in your sons riding. It makes me feel better.

Any who, I found out what the problem was.
I had downloaded some software for that cheapy video camera, and it turned out to be my default player. For some reason it wouldn't link with just that particular video.
Changed my default player and it works like a charm.

Thanks yous guys.

Never had seen that vid before. Don't know how I missed it. Been a while since I was at Splendora but every time I ride that track, I get the same feeling......like someone is riding with me but when I turn around there is no one there. I see the same dirt and the same corners here in this video and now I know why.

SMOOOOTH. His riding style was smooth.

I agree James, every time I'm on the track at Splendora there are two people on my bike with me.

Love ya MB.

Just watched that video again (about 100 times now). Brings a tear to my eye every time....
I would like to propose a question to all those who have children that ride, especially you Mr Berg. How do I get my wife to accept the risk/reward side of riding motorcycles? I grew up around motorcycles. Mom and Dad both raced Motocross, Desert and Trials in SoCal every weekend. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood were spent at Indian Dunes or out in the desert near Barstow.My brother and I both have riden for years and can't imagine a life without bikes in it. I have had my injuries, as all who ride understand but, the shear joy of riding is well worth the risk to me. Being a father now and having two boys (6 and 9) who are showing a STRONG interest in riding, I, of course, want them to be able to experience this BUG that has bitten me so hard throughout my life.
My wife on thje other hand, wants them to have NO part of it. She is affraid of them being hurt which, I understand to a point however, I don't want them to live in a bubble either. Her last comment was that they could have bikes when they can get a job and pay for it themselves.... Bummer. I'm at a loss as to how to approach this in a different way so she would not be so fearful and just enjoy the excitement and happiness I know they would get out of it.
Both of my parents are gone now (far too soon) but I know they would have a huge smile on there faces if these boys could experience this.
Any legitimate suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated....

Dang... 8 years ago. I still remember reading about it right after it happened and being in disbelief.

Mr. Berg my thoughts are with you folks today. God Speed Garrett!

Ekholm;

I too was like you I grew up riding and racing from the time I was 8 years old, as I got older I loved it even more. I now have 3 boys of my own 2 12 year olds (not twins) a set of his and hers, and a 17 year old.

I continually find myself defending the fact that I not only let them ride but provide every opportunity to do so. I agree with you that they should not and can not be kept in a bubble and protected 100% of the time. I spent a substantial amount of time in the hospital in both 2004 and 2005 because of motorcycle injury, and my dad even went as far to tell people in the family that he had wished that he never taught me to ride. This was so devastating to me, because in my youth it was the riding and racing that are my most fond memories.

My biological kids both started riding at about 4 on a PW50, my wife at the time didn't want them riding. I pointed out the injury rate for baseball, football and other sports and asked would you let them play those sports? To which her answer was OF COURSE, but you won't let them ride? I finally won that battle but was separated and divorced not even a year later. So that may not be the best example but some insight to it.

I have been re-married now for about 6 years and in doing so I acquired another 12 year old (then was 8) I started including him in the riding, the best thing to do is to allow your wife to participate. I took my wife riding with me and she rode on my bike and then I got her on her own bike. Now there is no stopping her. Allowing my boys to race is a bridge I have not yet had to cross, and I don't know that I want to, my various injuries usually happened practicing for that BIG race, so not too hip on that idea, however my boys all ride so does my wife and it's great.

Look up some statistic's about child injuries you may be shocked to find that cheer leading is actually the most dangerous activity of all high school sports / activities. Look at the number of kids killed walking across the street or on bicycles.

Then take them all out riding with you at some point and take them for a ride or rides. Lead by example and show them how it can be safe and enjoyable.

Thanks
Scott

Me too John, me too! It has been 443 weeks and 6 days. I remember it as if it was today. Sometimes life is difficult - we must move forward and we do.

I visited his grave on New Years day. It was one of those brutal emotional times. He was a GREAT son and "may he rest in peace."
