    Boys and their bikes: Mac masters the motorcycle

    The boasting sharing tales of my grandsons and their bike skills continues. This time, it's all about Mac.

    While Bubby worked on perfecting his bicycling skills, Mac more than mastered the (mini) motorcycle Santa brought him for Christmas.

    Serious skills require serious attention.

    A seriously awesome job by Gramma's little pip-squeak.

    Today's question:

    How would you rate your motorcycle skills?

    My motorcycle skills are terrible. I tried to learn on a bike that was way too bike for me. Mac, though, looks like he is ready for a tattoo and a Harley.

    Your videos are beginning to have a serious impact on my bank account. With no previous 'boy' experience, I keep discovering fun things that I think my Grandson may enjoy. LOL.

    Zero experience on a motorcycle here. My Mom would have killed me, and I was always more afraid of her than a motorcycle :)

    Ha! NO motorcycles for me. No ma'am.

    Mac looks so darned cute! As for my motorcycle skills -- I am very adept at riding on the back. I leave the actual riding to Sandy -- she loves her Harley!

    Ha! My husband bought a scooter several years ago in order to "lower his carbon footprint." I suggested we buy a more energy-efficient refrigerator instead. But I have to say, I love putting on my red helmet and hopping on the back! It's way too much fun--a couple of silver-haired grandparents tooling around town on two-wheels! It always makes me smile.

    My motorcycle talents are absolutely zero although I used to love riding as a passenger with Jerry.

    Mac looks proud of himself, cute.

    I love hearing about the motorcycle-riding grandmas, even if just as a passenger. I'm with the non-riding grandmas, though. Not my cuppa tea—only because I'm a big ol' fraidy cat.

    Somewhere between 0 and terrified! I am still trying to score a few rides in a convertible though so I am way behind the learning curve. :)

    Cute pictures.

    Too chicken for a motorcycle! The happiest day of my life was when my son sold his. Even though many years ago I used to hop on the back of my boyfriend's "motor scooter" with nary a thought. And no helmets in those days.

    I love his expression in the first picture! Ha! Sooo adorable!!
    Rating my motorcycle skills...
    I wrapped my arms around my husband's ARMS, when he took a corner too low!! It was both of our first time on a bike! And our last! Almost our last day on earth too!!
    Need I say more? :)

    I want to snatch him right off that cycle and hug and kiss him....good grief he is so adorable in these pics!!! :)
