Took my Dad out for a couple of hours & stopped at a bakery of course. Glorious day!

What a great photo. I asked my Dad whether he would like to ride on the back (he was an ex-biker) he declined feleing he was too old.

Love that! Took my dad for a spin on my Rocket III once and had to have his hands surgically removed from my shoulders. He won't get on the Trophy despite the top box.... LOL Well... He is 90 now. Glad your dad enjoyed the ride.  :172:

Good for you...and him. Once took my Dad for aride when he was nearly 80. Was the last time he was on a bike. Wish he were still with me to take another ride.

You Good Boy Simons Trophy, I'm sure my Old Man would love to do the same, unfortunately his ailing health does not allow it anymore, but through you it's a little bit of all of us who did it :047:
An old biker must be a good rider
