zxrider is a new Daddy!

Daughter, Danielle, 8.0 lbs, born on Sunday morning, 5/23.

Baby and Mom are doing well and recovering nicely.

So, Mom and Dad are already debating- What is the appropriate age for kiddo to get into motorcycling? I say 4, she says not until 5. Either way, we definitely have another future rider to add to our ranks!

Many congrats. Its a wild, but fun ride.

My wife and I discussed the riding aspect as well. 5 was our concensus, after polling members at a few different sites, so that's our target. But we've started by giving him a battery-operated go cart for his first Christmas, which he loves to sit in and play with the horn, starter, and accelerator

i say right after he gets bicycling down good, go for it (even if you have to wait until he's 5).

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

And congrats to the new Daddy.

4, 5, 6, whatever. I think it great that you and the wifey are good with even the idea of the kid and motorcycles.

Outside of... well, me, my entire family is pretty much against the whole 2 wheels idea. So I got a late start.

Again, Congrats.
