    My Best Friend

    Just thought you all would enjoy this picture I took in December. This is my best friend and his daughter who were in town visiting for a few days. He doesn't ride at present but wants a bike real bad just as soon as he's able to afford one. He's got the hots for a Thruxton but also likes the K1200S.

    Uncle Veg will be deeply honoured to give her her first ride when her parents feel that she's ready if her dad doesn't have a bike by then. But then he lives in Colorado, so I think he really should do what he can to get one.

    Ben, best friends are forever, seems like someday you him and his daughter need to make a plan before the good times become past times.

    Hope you are well.

    From the looks of that smile I'd say they should just give up and let her ride.

    Your pal looks like Walter Becker circa 1978.
