Having a son has really made me see the father son bond in a new light. I came across this photo of MotoGP superstar Vallentino Rossi with his dad back in 1988 and thought it was really sweet as his dad was obviously such a massive influence and motivating force in his life. Judging by the background they are already at a racetrack somewhere.
My old man bought me my first motorcycle for my 4th birthday and took me skiing in the same year, both of which in many ways set the course of my life. Even though he has grown more and more distant over the years, (3 months after the birth, he has yet to make any plans to see his grandson) I am really grateful to him for introducing me to 2 of the loves of my life.
