BORN TO BE WILD

Remember growing up, you or your kids or someone you knew had a rocking horse. Well it is a different day and age. I present to you, The Rocking Motorcycle. Now your child or grandchild can rock away the hours dreaming of riding his or her own Harley. The wide open spaces has been replaced with the asphalt jungle. Roy Rogers has given way to Peter Fonda and  Marlon Brando. All the cool kids have them. Just be sure they wear a helmut.

  1. Great, this is a nice idea! I used to make some wood toys for my kid, but never thought of something like this.

  2. Yes, as a kid, my favourite was a rocking horse! Once, it rocked so fast I injured my toes when it got stuck under the arch.

  7. yes, memories of Easy Rider. And a helmet today is a must. I am glad you enjoyed the crested saguaro on my site today. In answer to your question, I used a NikonD90 with a Nikon 17 to 55 lens. The 17 to 55 lens is a rally nice piece of glass and I can actually see the difference in my photos when I used it versus the Nikon 70 to 200 lens.

  8. I guess I'll have to settle for one of those (not only for kids, ya know!) I have wanted a scooter, preferably a Vespa, for years but my family has talked me out of it based on their fears for my safety. Hmmm! I guess I wouldn't listen if I lived in your area where I could become an easy rider without contending with low temperatures, ice and snow.

    The photo is superb, but my grandkids are a wee bit too old for this wonderful toy.

  10. I know the American consumer (of a certain age with the disposable income) adopted the Harley, but to see it take its place in the children's nursery is another thing altogether. I will suspend judgment until I see newborns wearing red, white and blue Easy Rider-style helmets in their cribs. Then we'll know for sure that the newest parent generation has fully embraced the 60s as lifestyle du jour. (How much did that rocking Harley cost!!??)

  14. We owe it to someone else's achievements in health and thus feel joy, depending on the success of others as if their achievements, and this is the Buddha mind. Always hold the interests of all sentient beings of the heart, we can not leave the joy forever.

  18. I just saw one of these somewhere - can't remember the place. I thought it was very cute. But, as I recall, it was very expensive, too.
