        1st gen, but in after gf
        "In all the human societies we have ever reviewed, in every age and in every state, there has seldom if ever been a shortage of eager young males prepared to kill and die to preserve the security, comfort and prejudices of their elders, and what you call heroism is just an expression of this fact; there is never a scarcity of idiots." -The Culture

          Hmm possibly 3rd gen. My Dad rode, my bro rides but my Granma and Granpa used to be into motocross - back in the day when it was called "scrambles" and there was the scramble track at Mosman Park in the 1930's apparently.

              Both gandfathers and one grandmother rode during the war.
              Mum and Dad both rode but gave up when they "grew up".
              3rd generation?

              Thanks to our IT department, I can't see the picture.

                  3rd Gen, The old man taught me to ride as soon as i could touch the ground on his old 125. Bugger that reminds me, Ive got to dig up some old photos of the old man for his birthday.

                        3rd Gen hoolagin Tho, I had never seen any of the bikes as they were all sold way before I was born and mum has spent my entire life trying to convince me that I was unable to ride anything with 2 wheels (inculding a pushy), but having said that, she is doesnt bug me too much about it now, she was most pleased when I sold the gpx and brought the 750 (she hates 250s). She is even happier now the 750 is gone and Im riding a 1000.

                        Gramps had a few stories: apparently, it was common place for him to get grandma to drop her cardigan down to cover the licence plate on the side car whenever cops were about.

                        There was another story about him crashing his bike and side car into a farmer's veggie patch late one night whilst on the way to visit my gran. After pulling the bike out of the field and getting it back onto the road, he decided to fill his side car with veggies before he took off. Sneeky bugger!

                        Dad, well, he wasnt as cleaver as his old man, he'd give the cops a run for his money, but they would catch up with him in the next town.

                        Disclaimer: I dont do any of the nordy stuff that dad and his old man did.

                        Edit: Not sure if it goes back any further, our family history died with my grandparents.

                          3rd Generation.

                          Grandfather still talks about his pre-war bikes with no suspension and 400 2 strokes, Dad's favorite was his Triumph Bonneville, uncles both rode Ducati.
