Yes, I blame my parents...

    It would be interesting to know how much we really learn & pick up from
    our parents, cognizant or not.

    Recently my mom and I were talking about how fun she had riding pillion on
    my dad's NSU-250 before they were married. It then struck me that my dad,
    who was really into motorcycles as a youngster (Norton and NSU) later
    became reluctant to talk about this when I grew up. Although he was never
    actually opposed to me having a bike, he didn't encouraging it either,
    (and perhaps that cool poise gave me enough fuel to initiate this
    incendiary interest for moto-bikes... who knows?).

    Whenever my mother starts talking about their exploits in life, I feel
    like telling her how grateful I am for having her and my dad as my
    parents... but I somehow never really do so. So this time I told her that
    if she sends me some pictures of them riding the NSU bike, I'll promise to
    put them on the web and write a piece about how grateful I am for having
    them as my parents.

    For most of you who don't really know me (or my parents), I'm sure all
    this must be dreadful boring stuff, so just hit delete now... or perhaps
    you should first look at the pictures -- they are kind of cute;

    Enjoyed your article & pictures - thanks for sharing & welcome to reality,
    Your parents make a cute and good looking couple - what
    memories i'm sure they'd like to share with you. Time to break
    out that video camera.

    The older I get, the more I see my dad & mom in me too. It's
    amazing how that happens. And it's not a bad thing; carries on
    their legacy. I see my own two kids experiencing the same thing.
    They have kids of their own now, and when at our house, i'll
    catch them arguing with themselves about how they're sounding
    just like dad / mom over something dealing with their own kids.
    LOL, Pay backs - aren't they great?
    My daughter, being the first born, never came with a manual; though
    in vain, I searched for one. When I look back, i can see many mistakes
    and decisions I've made that I wish could be taken back - but I can't.
    BUT - I also know I've done far more 'good' for them, than I'll probably
    ever know. Lifes valley's and mountain tops, make us who we are too.
    But it's what our parents taught us; ingrained in us, that make us shine
    through it all.

    They are. Your parents seem to have been a cute couple, and while they
    may not have been a lot of fun as parents, they were obviously able to
    enjoy life...

    Cool parents. I never got along with my mom and my dad was off fighting
    in wars. Sad really, I never got to know them very well.
