Don't Forget Me!

My uncle (pictured), his faithful dog , and I were on a cross-country road trip from Oregon to Texas with stops along and out of the way to visit family that he hadn't seen in decades. Part of the trip entailed stopping at a small ranch outside of Kansas City, Missouri where a collector of Moto Guzzi Motorcycles lived. My uncle wanted to trade his larger bike for a smaller, more manageable bike. He was taking the new bike for a test ride when I snapped this pic of him and his faithful companion, Yo-Dee, doing his best to keep up with his master. There's nothing more American than a family road trip!
