Please meet Killian. He is the next generation of rider in our family. We are trying to steer him towards a KZ or GS.
Please excuse his Dad who is a .... ahem... Harley guy.

Good to see a young 'un on a bike.  Don't worry about a country of origin choice.    These days it's OK to go both ways.  The main thing is to lean towards gasoline.

My grandson is 3 1/2. He has sat on Opa's '80 XS 650 and he liked it. Even though nothing happened as in engine starts or ride.In time he will also be corrupted ,errr ahh, introduced to Opa's KZ's also. If the "plan" happens, he will take over the care and feeding of the herd when it's time for me to hang up the helmet. Yah gotta start 'em young!

BTW, Nice GPz and H-D Shovelhead.
I don't have a plan and I'm sticken' to it! '77 KZ 650 / 750 GPz custom project in progress

The Grandson took to it much better that the nephew years ago who had the opportunity to sit on Chuck Graves' Championship winning, Number 1 plated Superbike. The nephew wanted nothing to do with it.         (makes sense... he is my wife's side of the family!

This is the place guys. Post up your Next Gen pics

Killian's big brother, Theodore, got an XR/CRF 50 last year on loan. Looks like we might have another racer in the family

Riding and wrenching your ride! Few things are better in life. It warms me to see younger folk (male and female) take it up. Especially on older iron. Except when they hardtail them. Then I think "Hey, it's not my bike. Rock on."

Hi, this is Ruben the youngest of my three grandsons. I have had to give the young pup a lesson in domestic politics as he keeps asking "when are you going to fix it". I have explained that to maintain good garage karma I need to finish the bedroom furniture I promised his Grandmother first (should be a couple of weeks)
