  • Great Christmas
  • I hope everyone has a great and very happy Christmas. Here in Montana we still have some snow on the ground, and I will be going to my daughters home for Christmas day. My 11 year old grandson and my 52' 8N are there. He now drives the N very well. Last couple of weeks we have been racing. Me on the N and him on his dirt bike. Yep, I have to give myself at least a 1/4 mile had start, and he Still beats me. Who cares, great fun.

    Have a very Merry Christmas, and look to see everyone Next Year.

  • Re: Great Christmas
  • Grandson and I had a Christmas Day Race. He on his dirtbike, and me on the 52' 8N.
    Yes, it was cold here in Montana. Was 24 degrees when we took off. He had on all his bike riding gear complete with helmet and face shield. I, on the other hand, had on a coat, gloves, and that's about it!
    First run, he gave me about an 1/8 mile head start, and he beat me by about half that distance. Second race, he gave me about a 1/4 mile head start, with me in 4th gear, he still beat me. Flew by me like a blue streak.
    We were cold, miserable, frozen stiff, and,,, and, we were laughing, and had a Great Christmas RACE. What fun.

    Gotta love "N's" matched up to fast Dirt Bikes!!

    Happy New Year to every one!

  • Merry Christmas, Maybe you should let him have the tractor and you take the bike?
    Another 4 months and the snow should be gone. Okay, 8 months.

  • I have thought about trading, however, it is great fun seeing him "Fly by me" and the joy he gets in "beating Granddad". Ha, ha.

    I told him, that I bet he is the only kid in his school that has driven a 1952 8N by himself. He loves that.

    Hope all have a Great Christmas, and a Safe and Happy N Year.
