One of the primary themes in the movie, Why We Ride, is the role family plays in motorcycling. So, we shouldn’t be surprised that the producers have put together a collection of excerpts from the film to honor the primary force behind most motorcycling families, Dad. (Although we’d love for the average to swing towards both Dad and Mom.) This clip tells it from the heart for those who learned about motorcycling from their fathers.

A father giving a child tips on motorcycle riding. What could be better?

Happy Father’s Day, Dad.

Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.
