Dad’s and Dude’s Turn The Tables At MotoAmerica

Hey Cuties,

I shared my epic Mommy-Daughter Day with LittleCuteLips.  The boys went out of town to MotoAmerica Motorcycle Races in New Jersey and I couldn’t let them come home with fun stories and we didn’t have any of our own.  Their trip prompted our day, they had a great time and so did I.

MotoAmerica is the home of the AMA Superbike Series that tours across multiple cities. They have five classes of road racing that includes 9 rounds and 18 races.  They 2017 MotoAmerica series started in Austin, TX and now Round 9 in Millville, New Jersey.

The boys went up Saturday morning and met up with the rest of the crew.  They checked into their hotel and headed out to the races.  Babe has been riding for about 12 years now, he rides a Yamaha R600 and R1,000. He and the Street Team (his crew) check out a lot of races but this time they decided to bring their little dudes along for some fun.

They had great views along the track and tried to snap pictures as the motorcycles zoomed by at speeds of 180+ miles per hour.

The ManChild

Jelly Bean had a cool bike that captured the attention of the kids.  The ManChild said they were giving our jelly beans as well.  That easily wins over the kids.

The Street Team + Monster Racer JD Beach

They met Monster Racer JD Beach, that was really cool for the kids. This really sealed their experience. I bet they all want to be little bikers now.

The sports bike motorcycle community gets a bad rap. This is not up for debate.  The Street Team is a crew of solid riders, they are not a motorcycle club. Make no mistake they are a family, and they are our family. They are mostly guys but have a few gals as well. We travel together (Couples Trip), we attend one another’s weddings, baby showers, birthday parties and more. They are a very solid part of our village.

They are husbands, fathers, uncles and brothers. They take care of their families and are active in the community. They are so much more than the “crotch rockets” they ride on.

Babe sent me this picture and I loved it. I think I’ve been on the back of his motorcycle twice in all these years. It isn’t my cup of tea, but this I would do.

Between the races, they had BMX Stunt Shows, Suzuki Demo Rides, Autograph Sessions, and more.

Even the littlest fans had a chance to get on bikes.

Selfie fun on the track

They had a great time, the ManChild came home with a renewed interest in riding dirt bikes. He said they had kids as young as 7 doing demonstrations. They were so good they were “dragging knee” it is just what it sounds like.

    That sounds so cool. My teenage son would have a blast at something like that. He would seriously be in his glory there.

  2. Jeanette

    That is something that my husband and my kiddo would love to do! It looks like they had such a blast in my kiddo love stuff like this. It’s nice that they get to have a weekend with just the boys. We do that here also. They need that time with their dad too!

  3. Kita

    I am going to get my son’s godfather to take him to the raceway here. They have fun things like this that I know he will love. I am sure your son had a blast.

  4. Tomi C

    Looks like you and the family had a lot of fun. I love that Jelly Belly bike. Confession, I’ve only been on a bike once in my entire life and had no idea they could go so fast. 180 mph. WOW! Talk about a need for speed.

  5. Ty

    Looks like the boys had a ball. What a fun event. I’m afraid of motorcycles. I won’t even sit on them. LOL! One day maybe I’ll get over that!

  6. candy

    I have absolutely no knowledge about super bike sports. Must say they are some great looking and fancy bikes. Nothing I have ever ridden that is for sure.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Hahhaha Candy. I used to be like you, and then I learned about his hobby. I know way more about motorcycle stuff and parts than some men. lol

  7. Amber Myers

    This is so cool! Sounds like a fun time. I’ve always wanted to try out a motorcycle.

  8. Teresa

    I grew up in a rural area ad we all had min bikes, dirt bikes, three wheelers, ATV and Razrs, now i live in an urban area ad this is just not allowed. Whenever we go visit my family, my kids LOVE to play on all these toys! There is freedom in fun toys!

  9. Sarah Bailey

    What an absolutely amazing sounding day out, this sounds like something my Dad would really enjoy himself as well as he loves racing.

  10. Nanekia Ansari

    I am sure the kids had an amazing time. What an adventure?! I’m always looking for things to do with my only son and I think he would love this. Thanks for sharing.

  11. erinlivelovelaugh

    Lol @ dragging knee being just what it sounds like. I would have crashed that trip though and participated on one of the demo rides. I always wondered what it feels like to be behind the wheels of a bike.

  12. rebekah

    HOW FUN! This looks like a blast!

  13. Miriam T.

    Looks like the fellas had a great time! I’m not the hugest fan of bikes, but since picking up an ATV, I’ve been braver. I told Gil he can get a motorcycle and I’ll get one of those cute little Vespas. Vroom vroom.

  14. Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    My husband and youngest daughter would love this! Totally not my thing, but they would love it!

  15. Tonia

    What a fun day for the boys. I love motorbikes. I can’r wait till my lil fella is old enough to ride and enjoy them.

  16. Ashleigh Owens

    Looks like they had a great time! I love that you all do mommy-daughter, father-son days!

  17. Lisa

    It looks like the boys had a great time. I love the look of the older Harley.

  18. Liz Mays

    Seeing the races must have been awesome. It’s really cool that your husband’s team brought everyone out to have some fun!

  19. Sapphire Kharyzma

    What a great idea! This looks like it was so much fun! I enjoyed reading this, thanks for sharing!

  20. Erlene

    I’ve never been to anything like this, but it looks like a lot of fun for the entire family. I’m sure my hubby would enjoy this since he wants to get on a motorcycle again.

  21. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    That sounds like a great time. I know a few people into bikes that love to go to events like this when they’re in the ara.

  22. sara

    What a perfect Dad-Son activity! I know my boys would love to go to motorcycle races one day. NJ is not too far either. Looks like your boys had a fabulous time.

  23. liz Cleland

    My son would just love this. We are avid riding four wheel family.

  24. Kita Bryant

    Now I would have LOVED to go to this. It looks like everyone had quite the blast!

  25. Kim

    This sounds fun, and I like that the kids are included. I have only been on the back of a motorcycle once and it was with my cousin. My husband wants a bike so bad, but I don’t believe in them.

  26. ShaBree Henry

    This looked so fun!Perfect for dads and sons. Shoot I would have loved to attend. lol

  27. Candice Straughter

    This looks like a great bonding experience for the guys. I’m all for anything positive that keeps kids active and teaches them life skills. I’ve only been on 1 motorcycle in my life. I think I’ve seen way too many of those blooper or crash shows to ever ride again. But who knows. I might get brave enough some day.

  28. Chubskulit Rose

    What a cool event for the men in your life. Im scared of driving a car but I used to ride a motorcycle back home lol.

  29. Angie

    That looks like such a fun event for the guys!

  30. Kristin Kimble

    This looks like a lot of fun! Definitely a dudes weekend! Love it!

  31. Tiffany H.

    I’m with you, I think i have been on a motor cycle once. They seem “cool” but are scary and can be dangerous, so im glad to hear that he has been riding for years and thankfully is alive. I digress but I love to see that they have father/son event to attend. Sad to say but there are so many missing fathers that I have to give Kudos to those that are around and active.

  32. Eva

    This sounds like something that my husband and the boys would love to do. They just went out on a dad-son day last weekend to play golf and they had such a good time. I bet they’ll be doing more hanging out soon.
