Looking at all your pictures, I think you and my daughter (in Australia) would get along well. She's into bikes, too. I do love them myself. Never owned or drove one, but always enjoyed riding on them. In fact, my whole family has always love them. I remember as a very young child watching my father jump one through a hoop of fire, and being scared silly for him. I was just about screaming! They go back a long way in my family.
