THIS...Is how it starts
« on: March 31, 2021, 05:51:21 AM »
My partner Ann’s grand daughter Penelope.
Comes out and says..
“Can I borrow a clean piece of rag please Ziz..? (Name she has always called me..)
“Yeah, what for Pen...?”
“To clean the bike..”
“Which one..?”
“The good one first, then the other one...”  :rolleyes: https://youtu.be/jTTScAZatEo

Make sure your bikes are safe for if she goes there when you aren't around.

Yes..
A long time ago but I remember it. I used to pick my Son Christopher (V85 lover) up, and put him on the bikes, Cars, 4WD’s, Piper Super Cub etc...
Now he could pick me up if he wanted to.... :clock: :clock: :clock:

Funny you say that and your point is extremely valid.
She is parented in the old fashioned way by her Mum and ultimate authority by Granny (Ann), who she is terrified of crossing. The deal is, that she absolutely NEVER...! gets on the bike without asking me first and NEVER...! When I am not there.
She has to ask at the start of the day and then the ok applies only for that day..(I ensure that the bikes are on the centrestand in that case).
My own grand daughter Juliette (Christopher’s daughter), is coming along nicely




There is a Yamaha Pee Wee 50 and a Suzuki DS80 for either of them to ride when they want.

They're BOTH Guzzi's, so aren't they both "good ones"?  :boozing:

I think so, but the Norge (for me) is unbeatable. Young Penelope has her eye on that V85 though. :clock: :clock:

I dunno Huzo, taking advantage of the young like that and paying them a pittance. What's the world coming to. Seriously though, it's nice that's she's interested enough to do it.
