That's something the kids will remember for the rest of their lives. And so will you! Good job!

Did a kids ride for my church “Touch a Truck” last month for about 100 kids, loved every minute of it!

When I was picking up the GearUp, at UralNE, they asked why I was in such a hurry to get back. I was standing next to their wall with all the RFK plaques, with the 2009 shirt on (the one with the not a Honda sidecar on it) and just pointed. They got it and had me out the door and on the road before Dmitri even had a chance to stop by to say hi and thank you. Not sure how many RFKs I've done, when they go through the "stand if" portion I keep trying to sit down and folks say, "keep standing I was with you back then"...but that was the 22nd with a sidecar... This, the MDA ride, Love Runs and anything that involves taking someone seriously ill for a ride, to take the mind off that reality even for just a few minutes is the very least we can do as sidecarists.
I salute everybody who does this sort of thing!

I agree totally, seeing a kid or adult for that matter on their first sidecar ride is addicting! took an elderly gent out for his 80th birthday last year ..... lots of satisfaction
