Old Dad still has it!!!!
Just returned from Melbourne Fl to see my 2 sons (& G-son & G-daughter). While there - I saw in older sons garage 2 Roadmasters - rusty, flat tires, etc. Well got them fixed up to be able to ride, and asked sons to ride with me across "Eau Galle Causeway". About a 12 mile round trip from their home. I got stares, "you mean start from Here?????" finally youngest (31) said "OK - but wasn't going to wait for me -big grin" Older son (35) knew ol' dad rode here in KY. So we took off. Needless to say, I let youngest stay with me across the bridge, then on trip back I showed no mercy.
Rest of afternoon was spent talking about poor younger son and wait till next year!!!! Dang it felt good to be riding with sons again. Been 20 years since we did that. BTW- temperature was mid 70's, returned yesterday to 31, snow showers. Dang!!!!!!
