If You Ride Dirt Bike


It is important to wear the right equipment.
All. The. Time.


Because if you don't, bad stuff will happen. Fun was merely kick starting his bike when the kickstand got him in the shin. Pair of boots would have fixed that.


Beneath the pressure bandage is a six inch gash which probably should have been stitched up, but that's another story.


And this one. Buff.
This is what happens when one skids out on hardpack wearing only bike boots, helmet and a pair of gym shorts. Yes. I yelled at him. And I yelled at the other one too.

Ouch!!!! Boys!!!!!

Did I tell you about the time that Nick broke both of his arms taking the test to get his motorcycle license? Taking the test. In a church parking lot. And he drove himself home. With his thumbs turning the steering wheel.

They do keep us on our knees, don't they?

Good grief. Boys and their toys. And their foolhardiness. Glad they are in one piece....

It's not just boys though.

I'm a mom of 3 girls and I love riding 2 wheels down! Hubby bought me a 150cc scoot. I may look silly wearing the boots, leather riding jacket, gloves, goggles, and helmet but at least I know I am attempting to ride safely.

My 1 date with gravel was not a fun experience and I wasn't going at a crazy speed (5km pulling into my mother's trailer park with groceries) but my ribs hurt for a couple weeks after. Believe it that the eggs that I happened to been transporting didn't break or crack at all!
