Sportbike Ride Heading Home Early
This video is on a 04 black Kawasaki zx10r as I head home after riding with my son. My son will usually do 250 to 300 miles riding the twisty roads on a Saturday or Sunday. Many weekends he does more than 500 miles in 2 days. This is a bit much for old Dad so I break off early and head home alone. I let the young ones play all day as they wish. I have gotten a call to bring my silverado truck to pickup a downed rider late in the afternoon. Please enjoy this video of old Dad heading back home.
We have helped many of the meetup groups riders by picking them up when they crashed or broken down. Most of the time my son repairs what is wrong with their bike and they can pick it up running from our house. My son earned all his spending money through college by wrenching on friends bikes. He was charging them about 50% of what a shop would. It was win-win for both sides. I taught him how to do most of the tasks but very quickly he was way better than me at all the tasks. Sportbikes need a valve adjust every 15,000 miles and costs $500 to $600. My son did them for $300 and was a main source of his income. He spent all his wrenching income on helmets, new leathers, bike upgrades. He worked for all the nice gear he has. As always, enjoy the ride!
