Looks like it is going to happen to me this week! Feel like stealing Ness' idea and run with "Grandfather New to Intermediate!" (thanks Ness for the inspiration). I've seen the new baby pillion discussion, nobody has discussed gear, helmets, colours, either pink or blue. Your advice would be appreciated. And, like all posts on this forum, you don't have to be an expert or grandparent to give your expert opinion.
