Here are a couple of photos of my Dad and I in Southern California, on my first motorcycle. I could be wrong, but I don't think my hand-knitted beanie was DOT approved. That's mom in the background, oblivious to Dad's motorbike shenanigans. See the lights on the house? That's really the only evidence that it's Christmas because, well it's California.
Also, I'm quite sure that if I tried this with my 2 year old, my wife would be calling the police!
Thanks for these experiences and all the love Dad.
