Most memorable riding experience or moment?

What is one of your most memorable riding experiences or moments? Just something specific that stands out as really special that made you want to continue riding or racing? Doesn't have to be outstanding, just something that you remember as being important.

No one? Ok I'll go first. Here are a few of mine.

First time turning a wheel on a race track with WMRRA "taste of racing". I just KNEW I had to race after that.

First time coaching with CSS, I thought "I can't believe I got my dream job!"

First AMA race sitting on the grid after making qualifying- the most exhilarating feeling ever.

Recently riding through the Alps and seeing some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

The first few corners at Sachsenring circuit in Germany.

Riding with a group of CSS coaches and students at a dirt bike school in the mud and bashing bars and laughing out loud with mud in my eye.

AND, the first time I was able to ride with my 6 year old son on track and give him a few pointers and lead him around. So proud

My first bike was a Lambretta scooter, then a Honda CL305, then a beat up BSA 250. But when I pulled away from Fred Deeley's dealership in Vancouver, BC in May,1970 on my brand new Triumph Tiger 650 - that was a truly great moment. The love affair with Triumph has never ended (although there has been an assortment of of makes over the years). I was 19 at the time.

For me it was the first time i rode with my dad and my dads best friend. We would hit a trail about an hour from home. The trail included some small water crossings and a water fall after the snow would melt or during the monsoon. The other is when my grandpa and I would ride out in the desert, i had a mid 70's Yamaha 2stroke and he had a 74 Honda 250 4 stroke. We would Cruz around for hours. Now I own that bike he had bought brand new in 74. Some of the best times. Now me and my oldest son hit the road and carve some corners. The best times I've had were on a bike.

I'd like to add that bike was a 1976 LTD model. Collectable bike these days.
