I Ride: God gave us eyes to look at beautiful women, eyelids so we don't have to look at the ugly ones!!!
World Champion in the Making (Dad hopes)

This is my daughter Edie-Eloise (2 1/2 years old) who is motorbike mad. She has been able to say DUCATI from 1 1/2 years old, can point out all the different parts on a motorbike, she now points out a Panigale and says it. Turns a few heads at the local Ducati agents.

This is a pic of her on dads bike at our recent BEARS Sound of Thunder meeting where we had a field of 74. Best placing I managed was a 6th place in the wet, which was awesome!!!!! I had a 17 year gap from racing, struggled with my (no rebound base forks all weekend), but had a blast.

Great picture Digger!

You're lucky to get the little one anywhere near it, great smile

I can remember when my boy was about that age I started up my race prepped R1 in the garage, he nearly shit himself and ran away.
