    My Old Lady

    I really love my bike it's a 30 year old MZ made in the GDR. It doesn't has much power(12PS), but it's just great to cruise through the fields surrounding my hometown. I can't wait for the spring to begin, fixing the old lady once again and then taking her for a long ride.

    Riding was how me and my Daddy bonded.

    We'd go to the river and ride all day, him on his 93' Honda cr250 and me on my little z50. Sometimes we'd camp and fish as well. I love going places with him and working with him in the shop. I outgrew my z50 a long time ago and I'm now kicking him off his bike and riding around...
