If your child or grandchild is ready to swing a leg over a bike there’s a good chance it’s going to be on a Yamaha PW50 or something very similar. Probably not much different mechanically to the bike you learned to ride on. When they do, the smell of that simple two-stroke is likely to bring back memories that were hidden behind the epic road trips, the far away races and the muddy adventures. Be prepared, because the smile it will bring to your face is as strong as any smile you’ve had from the seat of a bike. Watching them place their tiny feet on those foot pegs and dash off through the summer weeds will stir up emotions that remind you why motorcycles are so important to you. Snap out of it though, whiskey throttle must be tamed early and trees are as hard as they were when you first started running into them.
Adventures come in all shapes and sizes. Here’s to the ones you’ve been on, dream on and inspire in others.
