Dude got a riding education today

Post  smokey2255 on Sun May 20, 2012 7:33 pm

I let my 16 yr old son ride my wing to work this morning. When he was leaving the parking lot a little blue haired lady pulled right out in front of him. He did what any of us would do and grabbed a handful of brake. When he did the front wheel washed out and the bike started the trek to the pavement. He performed perfectly under these conditions and just stepped off of it and let it lay down. As he was picking it back up the elderly gentleman that was in the car was extremely shaken and apologetic. The son just calmly told the ole boy that this is just a hazard of riding and to not even worry about it. He then climbed on and wished the elderly couple a good day and rode on home in the sprinkling rain.
I am proud of him and the way he handled the entire situation. Sure I could tear apart the braking technique, yada yada .... but no need. He handled it and that's what it is all about.

See you out there
Smokey
