[V] Taking our friend out on his first motorcycle ride!
« on: September 05, 2021, 07:59:21 pm »
Few weekends ago we took a friend out to Philadelphia for some coffee on the bike. He wants to get a bike and never ridden one before. His wife asked us to surprise them with a bike ride out and to let him ride / teach him to ride.

So we did what any responsible man would do and gave him the bike and said: 1st gear down, rest up. clutch in, throttle and go  :ricky:

I am new to this and even though I won't be doing much touring, I want to record these type of vids for memories for us.
