Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I took my tanaka bike to the city park with my kid trailer and it rode like a dream! Miles of smiles, and my daughter loved it as we pulled around on the paths and grass to the water park. The bike pulls up hill even from 3.5 mph and was a breeze to start anytime we needed a boost. Glad I didn't buy this one first because I might have sold it to buy the happytime. This is more fun because I can use it every day. The joggers and baseball kids smiled and waved. Felt like a million bucks. I am usually the outsider, the stranger, the oddball. On the bike I am the super-dad, the neighbor, and the oddball with a cool machine.

Are you sure that you are not the cool with the oddball machine?

Awww, that was great to read Happy!

Cheers!



Hiker made that smilie for AZbill but fits.

What ever happened to Hiker? Miss him. I gotta write. I kinda got out of the habit of chasing MIA MBers. They always seem to be OK and just got busy or drifted off.

No one can stop coming around with out sayin' good bye or some thing! Or we will send a coupla' guys over (In a Brooklyn accent)

Thumbs up Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

My kid thinks I'm cool.

I tried to get a picture of her trying to pull the starter when she stood up next to the bike, but it didn't come out. Oh well.



When she sees me putting the trailer together she starts cheering.

We don't go fast but we can go a lot farther to all the park features, since I don't get so wore out, and we can carry more toys and snacks.

Here is the "shooting stick" I am using for a kickstand. lol. I found it in my box of camera gear and re-purposed it. I need a Greenfield rubber foot for it now.


Note: Be sure and extend all the legs and lock them, then push the rods in a few times to scrape the paint off, for traction!

I tried using the HT bike with it. It will sure pull it, but is loud and doesn't pull slow very well. It tends to "lurch" or lug, and the joggers hated it. It was a chore to pedal with the 36x18 gear and heavy wheels. The Dax bike has 14-34 x 22/32/42 and 700c wheels.

So dang cool Happy!

"When she sees me putting the trailer together she starts cheering."

To cute for words and God bless.

70 years from now I am sure a very kind woman will be telling stories about her very cool Dad, his crazy motorized bicycle and rides in the park. Then she got to the teen yrs, lol.

Get a vid of the cheering! She will love it later

Somehow, you fit right in here, man.

Good job, Dad. Unsure if your daughter will remember at this young age, so keep doing it until, like you said, she reaches her teens.
