A monster smoky burnout using your dad's bike each year on his birthday might be a fun tradition.  I suspect he would approve!

My condolences to you and your family as well. And yes, I will think of him when I see DOHC.

I'm sorry for your loss DOHC.
You keep your dad in your thoughts and conversations. The pain fades in time but never the memories.

I echo all the replies above. At least you had a dad and an awesome one at that. I was lucky to have a Grandpa and a mentor Carl to teach me about being a man and the latter about construction. Bikes came from friends and learn by doing. Dads like yours always seemed to have time for young guys like me so I know the loss you must feel. He lives on in you and how you interact with others. He did well.

Even though we don't know each other, we have Kawasaki KZ in common, I feel sorry for your loss and Iwould like to send you and your family my sincere condolences.
I have a 1980 Kawasaki KZ750 Ltd. I bought new. I recently managed to get it out of my garage after 28 years and put it on the road again (2010). I feel like a kid all over again. Since I have acquired 3 78 KZ1000 Ltd, 1 1981 KZ1000 Ltd, and another 1980 KZ750 Ltd. Love the LTD's.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.  I appreciate it.

Nessism, I'm certain my dad would approve of monster smoky birthday burnouts.  His birthday is in the summer.  But truth be told I've never done a smoky burnout on any motorcycle.  I guess I'll need to start practicing.  :)
