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. They were so excited when they came back, that they couldn’t wait to tell me everything that they had learnt about motorbikes throughout the day. But then it came as no surprise when the kids were enthusiastic about wanting to own a motorbike of their own! Maybe one day, but for now, visiting shows like these are a good way to appreciate these vehicles.

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 R6 (600) and R1 (1,000) which I hear many people take Superbike Loans out for to have one of their own. 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.
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.
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.
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.
