Future Rider Perhaps

Last weekend we experienced gorgeous temperatures.  Our highs were around 69˚F (20.5˚C). Clear blue skies and abundant sunshine - perfect for riding on two wheels.

Alas, the riding gods gave us the middle finger and there would be no riding for us.  My sister-in-law was attending a veterinary conference here in Corvallis so she, my brother, and little Max (one year old this month) stayed with us for three nights.

While we didn't get to do any riding we did find a pretty cool scooter toy at the park on Saturday.

(I'll take this one)

(Look at that head turn)
Since my brother worked for Harley for over 20 years, I am pretty sure riding is in Max's future.

I hope everyone else is getting out and enjoying a ride on two wheels.  90% chance of rain for us Saturday, but tomorrow looks promising for a ride if I don't have to work.

    1. He is still little so he hasn't hit the 'Mad Max' stage yet. We'll wait until he gets to the terrible twos for that.

    1. We've already planned on getting him a Strider bike for his 2nd birthday to get that balance on two wheels going.

      It was nice to be out in the sun!

    1. I was looking at those forward controls too.

      It was a nice day. We are supposed to have a high of 70 today before the rains come tonight and I scored the day off, yeah!

    1. He is pretty smart, but I need a picture of my Gladius Max and Little Max together.

      They live about 2.5 hours southwest of here on the Oregon coast. A nice excuse for a ride through the twisties I'm thinking.

  7. Yep, I can see a Harley in that boy's future....now see, occasions like this, having a sidecar rig would have resulted in the boy getting a nice little ride in it! Just food for thought.

    1. Even if his dad gave us the thumbs up it would be hard to find a helmet that small I think. We must be patient.

    1. My brother sold his bike a few years ago so he has to get the two wheeled influence somewhere.

  11. It won't take very long before Max knows where to sit and what to reach for....make sure you all know where the keys are. :)

    1. How true.

      When he was here the bikes were pretty crammed in the garage so I didn't have a chance to put him up on my tank. Would have been a cute pic though.

    1. He is a cute little stink bug. Not bad for a snot nosed sammich grabbing petri dish. He'll turn 1 tomorrow.
