Default 3 generations of bikers.

This last weekend I went to my Fathers ranch to celebrate his 70'th birthday. The neighbor came by on a crazy off road mini bike. My son, who recently got his motorcycle learners permit, want to take it out and the the owner saisd it was fine. pretty soon all of us were taking turns on this thing. We were having so much fun that the neighbor left it with us and took my Dads truck back home. Anyway even my Dad who had not ridden a motorcycle since the 70's took a lap or two around the place. It was great fun. My Dad said that he had not felt so young on a birthday in years. The picture is of me riding the bike.

Now, I would have been very impressed if that was a pic of your Dad!

It might be easier to upload the video to youtube and link it from there.

It had a pull start Briggs & Stratton, a cetrifugal clutch and chain drive. It was a blast to ride. Just bouncing over the prairie on those baloon tires.

It looks like it has flowers on the front in the one picture where a headlight might be.

The neighbor who loaned it to us was a lady, and she wanted to girlie the bike up a bit. The flowers were unfortunately lost at some point in the day.

Very possibly could be. The lady who owned the thing said that it had a fake gas tank on it that they had removed.
