Sat. 8/10...Couples, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sons and daughters ride along..

My 2 grandaughters are coming to stay with us for the weekend and want to ride with Karen and i on sat. 8/10.

Anyone wanting to bring there kids or nieces or nephews are welcome.

All 2 up’s of any relation or not related are encouraged to attend.

This is going to be a slow paced fun ride for all skill levels except maybe the spirited pace riders...lol

Start time will be 8:30 am. Meet on the left side of the Waller Bucees at Hwy 290 and FM 362.

If we have enough interest from the younger generation we may stop and have lunch at an arcade type place for the kids to enjoy.

My grandaughters are 13 and 11 just to give you an idea of age.

Everyone is welcome.

Please post if your interested and who would be with you.

This would have been a fun ride. I have 11 year-old twins; boy and a girl. Could have taken one of them. But for us divorced fathers in Texas, the Standard Possession Order that gets forced on us, results in not having the kids with us on the 2nd or 4th Weekends of every month (or for most of the week for two weeks at a time).

Just a reminder this is a slow paced ride. There will only be 1 group. If your a fast rider this wont be the ride for you.

Hey! Great idea. My son loves to go on rides with me although as he is very new and pretty young(7) I wonder if it may be too much. Those of you that ride with your kids, I get concerned because I can feel when we are riding he gets very relaxed and I just have this fear that he is falling asleep or going to slip off. I know it's likely me being overly worrisome, but how did you all get your kids into that seriousness mindset that is necessary to ride as a passenger? At this point even without my personal doubts, think that my spouse would be a giant " no", but I am considering and would love the hear people's takes on this. If he stays home (he would be pretty unhappy no doubt), I may come out anyway as my cruiser and myself are built perfectly for relaxing rides such as this and honestly I miss riding with anyone.

at first read I was picturing you standing with your right foot on one bike, left on another and some sort of lead rope attached to the front bike.. thinking.. man, i gotta see this.
