    Some great bonding time with my grandson

    Here's how my grandson and I spent our day together yesterday.

    Well done Dan, time spent with grandchildren is the best investment you could make. Teach them the mechanical skills they need now and also bond with them. Nice video work too.

    GREAT!

    15 years ago I took a grandson with me to do tech service on a week long ride. I wondered at the time if he thought it was fun, but he still talks about it now and then. Now I'm looking forward to doing bike repairs with his sons.

    Beautiful Dan. I have fond memories of my grandfathers. The skills learned and sense of accomplishment is important. Equally important is the bonding within a family and the sense of continuity between generations. Many other things are also passed on that are more difficult to name.
