Default Off-road Riding is Like Fishing

I would like to express my thanks to this forum and everyone in it. For those of us "old-timers" (30 and above) who are returning to the love of something we enjoyed so much in our early (and more dangerous) years, this forum confirms to me that regardless of age or background, we all share one common bond--the simple fun of moving two wheels through and over dirt. It makes you feel so alive again! Just like fishing in one's youth, this is a pleasure that we must steward and pass on to the next generation.

Nothing like the wind on your face and the dirt in your teeth to make you feel young again.

And now I do it with my to kids.... Priceless

I third it. Dirt in the teeth is what it's all about. You know you've been having fun when you have dirt on your teeth in the shape of a smile.

Yep,this has brought me and my son closer in a differant level.
Although we both love to fish, it just seems the riding has taken
on a whole new life for both of us.

Agreed 100%...I rode from the time I was 6 till I was 18...gave it up to start my life and missed it for many years....Always told my kids the great times of my life when I rode. Finally I got tired of moving around, settled down and got to the point where I could get me and the boys bikes....Nothing fills my heart more when they ask whens the next time we goin riden dad? Awesome feeling.
