Dirt Biking In The TN Hills with my boys! Chaos!
čas přidán 6. 11. 2022
A guy finally got a few minutes "Free" from @ViceGripGarage so I took my boys out timber riding in the hills of Tennessee. Unfortunately, we went on a muddy day and got caught in a storm. And of course, breakage.

My step dad was a square body driving jack of all trades as well. This entire episode reminded me of all the days like this we had. He passed when I was 13. I can still see his face in detail covered in mud laughing at me as I floated a Honda 200 across a pond at 9 years old (i think)... I'm 48 years old this year..... that's the kind of memories you are making. The forever kind. Thanks for sharing this.
@Clark Griswald my 14 year old daughter diagnosed a loose wheel, while her and my wife were driving, one day, told my wife to pull over and fixed it for her. My wife was 🤏 impressed.
Hi Der first time text great channel/ 2 stroke on dirt bikes late 70s loved it
My old man was the same he took me riding fishing hunting and he took martial arts with me. Some of the best memories of my life. He passed eight years ago at sixty one. He was riding with me and my daughter when he had the died. We still ever chance we get. He would have wanted it that way
wow great story.... You should write a book.
We need more fathers like you. Boy falls (or girl) and you don't rush over to help and brush off the dirt. Just the encouragement & instruction so they can accomplish something themselves. Great parenting!
Such a great dad.. my dad taught me so much and this reminds me of him. He died in 2006 at 95. Your boys will look back and remember all these great times.
I think the most impressive part of the whole deal is that Bailey fought through all of that muck in a pit bike. He's a trooper.
Darn right, glad he's breaking out of his shell and embracing how awesome this stuff is.
We’re all reminiscing of our own childhood while watching this video Derek. In this crazy world, it’s wonderful to see there are still families like yours living the dream. Your boys don’t know it yet, but they will look back at this day as a great memory they will cherish forever. You’re doing awesome things Derek. I sure do admire you. Thanks for taking me back in time and remembering how my Dad did his best to be a good father. ❤️
Thanks Derek,love how willing you are, as a dad,to take the time for man time with the boys, they will never forget that you took this time with them.
Maybe the guys from bikes and beards can help you get that old harley running
Sean and Derek colab would be awesome!
@Raymond F. Pittam hey bud fellow July 17ther here. All the great ones were born on this day. I'm just a few years younger than you. 1971 was my year.
That would be a great collaboration
I am a real Harley Rider and when I rode we felt why pay attention to Punks younger that we were and rode anyhow in Missouri. I did the 4 Corner's U. S. Hard Ass run on Honda Gold Wing at 75 years. I used to ide with Nancy Wright the Harley Hall of Famer that rode in Russia on her 80 th Birthday.
I seen your post to Vice Grip Garage and was wondering. I am 83 years old born July 17, 1939 and was a Harley rider long before most today were even born. My very first was a 1950 , 125 CC. I rode all over the country following the wheat Harvest. It broke down in Yankton, S. D. where there was no Harley Dealers or even a shop. They had Cushman's and an Sears and Apex Shop. But there was a Lawn Moser Shop and the mechanic worked the engine and installed a double Ringed B. S. Piston in it and that gave the Harley a lot more Gump. I drobe that bike for more than five years till I bought my First 1965 74 CC. I have owned over the years many different bikes. But now at my age I can't get a Bike endorsement in California where I live. BUT! If I could fine a really good 125 or 165 CC Harley I would consider mounting one and shaking the hell out of it and telling it I am still man enough to mixt the gas and would ride it and Piss on the DMV.
Bringing fond memories of dad in the garage. We lost him this year. Thanks for the show. Really needed and loved it.
God bless you Derek, these memories you're making with your boys are absolutely priceless. Love from the UK.
Please do more Harley videos!!! Love all the shows and really enjoy when you and the boys do things together.
Love the way you praise both boys. Nothing like dad showing interest in their sons!
A guy can’t express enough how much he loved watching this! Reminds me of my dad and myself back when. You’re a great dad to your little humans!
@Vice Grip Lodge Hey and watch those knees! I was riding in the woods of Costa Rica on a newer 250 KTM 2stroke and trying to keep up with 20 somethings and blew out my knee for the third time! Be careful! I’m also 56 so, you know.
How old is Derrick? Your kids are going to wear you out. That's a good thing. One of these days you'll be eating nothing but dirt and rocks when they come ripping right by doing wheelies and you will never catch em.
@Vice Grip Lodge you’re welcome! Can’t wait to see y’all down in Florida again at cleetus and cars in a few weeks. Coming down from Buffalo NY
Leave that pit bike for practicing around the house! Your a good dad!
I grew up on 2 stroke. I had all my best memories on a 2 stroke. Derek and Jessica it's always great to watch you and the family spending quality time together. I my respect you have it by showing your boys true values in life and what they do.
The time spent with the Boys is priceless.
I wish I had been a more involved father than I was, as you are a testimony to positive fatherhood. Very engaging video, love to watch the three (or four) of you as a family. God bless!
this was really nice and wholesome to watch, your kids are lucky to have you. sadly i didn’t have my dad around when i was younger to make memories like these, granted i’m still 16 almost 17, either way, your a great father. keep it up!
👍👍👍 way to go dad, created some incredible memories, your boys will cherish for a long time coming. That's the good stuff. 👍👍👍
Need more Dads like this.
Aw man that looked fun as hell! Took me back to the days me and my buddies would ride our dirt bikes to the sand pits by our house. That looked like a whole bunch of fun. Thanks for bringing us along.
Big thumbs up to Bailey. It's no small feat to handle an under powered bike in that kind of slop.👍
I rode everyday after school! Growing up in a small logging town in the PNW I had free range! Came home many times after dark! Just like you I could never imagine my boys doing that now! Love the video!!
Riding dirtbikes with my two sons are the best times I've ever had!
Your a good dad, Derrick. Your boys will always remember this forever. Dont stop until you cant any longer.
Nothing better than to see a dad spending time with two terrific sons. Enjoy Derek they grow up quick 😊🇺🇸
I lost my dad when I was 19. Riding was something we enjoyed together but didn't get to do a lot of. I'm sitting at my desk at work and I was finished an hour ago. I couldn't stop watching. To you, it's probably just spending time with your boys. To some of us, it was a video full of teary eyed smiling. The high 5 at the top of the hill got me. You absolutely made their week. Seriously, thank you for sharing that experience. You're an awesome guy and an amazing father.
Man this brought back so many great memories! I was born and raised in Memphis TN but lived on my Grandmother’s farm for about 5 years in Silerton TN. She had around 1000 acres the borders the souther part of Chickasaw state park. Started out on a Suzuki 90 when I was around 8 and by the time I hit 12, I was riding a 125. My friend and I would ride for days in the summer! Ride on Grandma’s land and the park, when we got tired we would stop and camp for the night! The only 2 rules was 1. Do not die 2. Come home every couple of days!
Fun with the boys. Nothing better. ❤
Geez that looks like a blast. It brings back memories of my youth when I would hang with the guys and ride the 2-cycles, Yamahas, Hondas and Kawasakis all around the woods on this one fellas parents farm. It was a shock to most of the guys when they saw I could ride as well as they could, we had a blast! Seeing this has really made me nostalgic, Thanks! Your guys are doing great. Seeing the views are a bonus, love Tennessee Fall, beautiful.
Those boys are some pretty damn good dirtbike riders. Specially for how muddy it was there I'm sure at that time you were pretty damn proud of them. I know I sure would of.
Derek, I know I'm not alone when I say this, but we would watch you resurrect a pair of old boots if that's what you switched your content to lol. I absolutely love your wholesomeness, you're a great father, a great role model, and overall and awesome dude. Never give up and never quit. Keep up the good work. We all love you and your family.
Those 44 minutes put a smile on my face and a tear in my eyes too. My dad (passed in 2015 and miss him terribly) hated dirt bikes but gave in to me when I was 14 so that I could buy my first one with my grass cutting money. 1974 Suzuki TS100 for $350 in 1980. I loved riding and kept dirt bikes for almost 40 years (mostly Honda CR250's). When my sons became old enough, we started to ride together and your videos took me back to a cherished time. They are now 27 and 26, have their careers started, girlfriends, truck payments, etc. You're a great dad and it's insanely important to take some time away do this with your sons. Thanks for sharing your day with us just to keep those memories alive.
Those suzuki TS models were great. I sadly sold mine several years ago ( mine was a 1973 ts185) bought it back in the mid 2000s when I was a lot younger for I believe $50. Needed a LOT work then and right up to when I sold it. Ol girl was stubborn sometimes to start but when she finally fired up, she just kept going and going.
Going thru the comments, it’s amazing how similar our upbringings were! I’m a 2-stroke feller for sure! Had a QR50 to start with, then a PW80 and ended up with a DT50. After that it was time to grow up with work and responsibilities. Now I should be able to blame my 40 year-crisis and get me a bike again! ☺️
Just sitting here watching one of your vids, and it just impresses me so much how well mannered and respectful your children are. You and Jessica should be so proud. These days I see so many kids that are just, I'm sorry to say assholes. No respect, no appreciation, congratulations.
So much fun and the memories are what’s going to live in forever!!
They will never forget this day. What a blast.
What a great day with the boys. Thanks for bringing us along, you are THE dad, and it's so cool of you to get the time to just let it rip with the kids. Even with the mud, those look like fantastic trails..
Fantastic video! Having fun and learning with your boys is priceless. I have to say that Bentley is a natural.
Time spent with the boys with bikes is so valuable. Raised one that told me later in life "I just love em Dad!". Makes my heart soar watching this video! Keep em young as long as you can. We raced mx, cross country and a little desert before he went to freestyle. He lived and died motorcylces, makes for some great memories for someone approaching the end of his seventh decade.
Love the videos and warms a guys heart seeing dads (and moms) out mucking about with the kids, like we did back in tbe day. You absolutely have to put that harley on the garage channel. Keep up tbe great work both in the garage and raising those boys.
Thumbs up on the video, and two thumbs up for raising them boys right! Love seeing videos like this.
That is so awesome you are getting to spend this time with the Boys. My dad was a Honda mechanic and raced bike for 9 yes and he gave me the love of bikes but he never did this with me and a friend taught me to ride. Your boys will cherish this for the rest of there lives
Thanks Bailey&Bentley for lettin us go along for the trip. Slimy mud,wet leaf covered rocks, mud holes,and y’all came back with no broken bones or teeth!!!!!!! Good job boys!
Everything your doing with your kids is cool, they are figuring it out on themselves, and your right there.
I grew up on a dr 250. I wasn't big enough to touch the ground (I think my dad bought it for himself ha) so I had to put 2 coolers filled with bricks in the yard, push the bike between the coolers and climb on it- I lost my dad this February so this video really meant a lot to see. Thank you for making this Derek, love all your content sir!
Fixing old, broke stuff aside, this is a great, "how to" channel for raising kids. 🥰
I really can't think of anything to say better than you are a great father Derek. The patience the time and the joy and pride in your eyes as you coach I'm trying your key to be men is exemplary. One of the most valuable thing you can give a child it's your time.
Looks like a hell of a good time. Good job boys!
This was an absolute joy to watch!! You reminded me of how my husband took our 3 little humans(2 boys and 1 girl) out on dirt bikes. Memories they will never forget our lose. Their dad passed away July 26 2019. Thank you so much!! They sat and watched this with and just smiled.
Just smile and keep moving forward Julie 💪
A great video I love it
I'm so very sorry to hear that you lost your husband. May God bless you and your wonderful family. We all love you.💙🙏💙🙏💙🙏💙🙏 The Vise grip family love's ya.
Sorry to hear this. I'm glad those memories are there
I wonder at times what were the better memories. Laying out canvas and sewing the Bakers style tent with my son or the canoe and snowshoe camping trips when we slept in our own remote home. Making custom paddles for my kids to canoe with after many hours chatting and sanding or the quiet trips on Montana rivers and lakes. You are a good Dad and your boys will be fine men also because of these days. Thank You for taking us along! You are in my prayers Hoka Hey
That's awesome... at 59 y/o I still love riding with my son. As a kid I would stay gone for hours riding my xl250
I have disc problems too Derek. I had a lumbar fusion in 2011. L-4, L-5, and S-1. Now L-3 is bulging. I feel your pain man. It’s a hard road but try to take it one day at a time. No-one truly understands unless they have been through it. Sciatica is a nightmare. It’s worse because it doesn’t go away when you wake up. Stay strong bud.
Derek my friend this was quite possibly honestly my favorite video you have ever put out it’s so awesome that you would share this time with your boys with us and well I’m not a man a many word but it looks like y’all had a blast keep doing what you do my friend thanks for an awesome video. Rock on brother rock on 🤘
That tank where it's got the dents in it, looks like you "went farmer"a couple of times, Derek. Your boys are living proof that dirt bike riding can hurt, but still produce the Good vibes whenever you need them....BTW, THANK YOU TOO, JESSICA
I'd like to see the bike on vice grip garage. Never bad to mix things up from time to time.
You know what'd really throw peeps for a loop, lodge fix the bike..can't say I've seen a revival on lodge
Ya with you there
YES! Let's see that "Fraken-Harley" in the shop! Cleaned a bit and brought back so's the tires see some inappropriate wear!🏍️😎
GREAT TO SEE FATHER AND SONS OUT ENJOYING THEM SELF !! it really doesn't happen often enough these days what with long working hours It's times like these that the kids won't ever forger !! RESPECT X
That was great Derek you are great dad with great kids nothing like dirt biking with your kids .
this guy warms my heart
Glad to see youre back into trailriding and exploring the treasures of Tennessee! Keep it up!
This is probably is my favorite video just because of the memories it brought back of me and my brothers riding dirtbikes.
I cannot express how it warms my heart seeing a father and his sons creating memories that will be talked about and remembered for years to come between them.
Looked like you guys had a blast regardless of the weather.
Great experience for you and your kids. Looks like they have a great time with you. Hope for many more for you and yours.
Derek, thanks for that. It reminds me of riding with my boys and wife. We still ride some but not as often. The memories you are making are priceless! I love that KTM. It looks like my '99 250 SX. Great bikes. Keep up the great work.
This brought back so many memories of my 87 Kawasaki KX 250 and trail riding and dirt track racing with my buddies. I can smell the 2 stroke oil burning watching this. Great you can enjoy riding with your boys.
Brings back memories of riding with my dad. I don’t dirt bike anymore. Hurts the body too much.
Derick you truly are an idol. From the time you spend turning wrenches with your boys in the garage to moments like this. It’s the little moments like this mean so much to your boys as they get older. Really tugging on a ol’ boys heart strings. Keep it up buddy
That was awesome what a great exsperiance for your boys . Your a great dad
Glad you moved, your family will prosper in a free state!
Just bought my boy Bryce a 2004 KX65 in October for his tenth birthday. First full clutch ride and he is currently ripping up the lawn! Here in Maine you have to have a 12 hour rider safety course to ride off your own property, gonna get him signed up so in the spring we can head out for the trails! Thank you for sharing this!!
My first bike was a Yamaha JT2 60 (1972). My dad bought it for me but said, you work on it to keep it running....I did. I'm so glad you're teaching your kids to be responsible.
One summer my little brother and I beat the ba-jeezus out of an old Bultaco 125 (?) on our uncle’s farm. We never had these days with our dad (divorced parents) but our uncle did the best he could to keep us entertained. This video brought back those memories for me and the fun me and my brother had. I’m 63 now and my dad is long gone but I can still smell the 2 stroke exhaust and visualize ripping around that farm in NW Iowa. Glad you and your boys are able to build these memories-you’re a good dad Derek, but you don’t need me to tell you that. Peace.
Gotta take some time with them boys on the other fun things too! Thanks Derek, Jess, & Boys for the good times watchin!
I wish my Dad had done these kinds of things but with little education five kids and a small business he ran pretty much alone he just didnt have time. Good to know some kids get adventures like this.
It was good to see Bailey out with ya having fun . I have always enjoyed this channel because it shows the family side of you. Keep up with the great work on all your platforms.
Awesome seeing y’all have a blast making memories!!! I’ve mostly ridden 4 strokes a couple two strokes. Had fun on both.
Looks like a lot of fun, and a great learning experience.
Man this is one of my favorite episodes yet. I've been a bike guy since I was young back in the 70s. I got my son his first bike a Yamaha ttr 50 when he was 6. I've restored a lot of old 70s Japanese bikes, both road and dirt. I know what your saying about the price of dirt bikes lately (crazy!) I have a modern 4 stroke myself WR 450 but I'm going to buy a 2 stroke next. I had a CR 500 for a while and in Utah out in the desert it was a blast! Some of the best times with my son were on the bikes! Please do more motorcycle stories!
My entire life I was set on not having any kids but boy does Derek make a guy rethink that.... So much respect and admiration for what he does and how he does all of it!
After having 2 boys you actually get to relive your youth and see the enjoyment through their eyes 😊. Play with Legos, RC cars, dirt bikes go to movies etc…❤
I've become more of a 2 stroke guy as I've gotten older and started woods racing/riding. Can't beat the sound, the smell, the simplicity and the fun factor.
Great video. A slow slog through mud can be just as satisfying as a going fast in dry dirt.
This video is awesome I myself have been been an of roader most of my life from 5 hp lawn mower mini bikes, dirt bikes, atcs, quads, 4x4 trks, 4x4 jeeps, and now sand rails. With all of that going on I raised with my wife two boys and I can't forget my off road family that grew over the years to. Watching this just brought back dozen of memories of fun times. This is the best video you have made so far that I have watched I normally follow your other channel that I follow from my off road channel. I just found this or it just popped up so here I am glad I found you here. Thanks for sharing and up Keep the great work of being a dad.
Great that you are getting out and about with your boys!That will produce so many precious memories! By the way; have you tried using high tensile bolts on the new bike? In Australia bolts that are nice and shiny are not high tensile. Here HT bolts are dark greyish. Enjoy your channels so much. Even the wife likes VGG as your voice has tonal qualities that she likes. Some of the other CS-tvrs have voices that grate somewhat!
Can't believe you guys are out there riding through the trees with no goggles!!
One of the best ways to spend time with the little humans.
You are a great Dad, Derek. I have never been dirt biking and I am almost 46 years old. SMH.
What a terrific video! I did a lot of trail riding with my dad and really cherish those memories. You and your sons are making lifetime memories here. That Yamaha 80 is very similar to my first bike. It was a 1978 Yamaha GT 80, which was the off-road version. Same bike but no lights or speedo. I put so many hours on that thing! I would love to see a video or even part of a video on you working on that bike. Thanks for stoking some nice memories for me!
Gtmx had no lights
Learned on a Honda XL125 4 stroke wonderful bike. It's so nice to see you and your boys doing things together, priceless.
Definitely a resto on the Harley would be great. VGG episode 8 was fun, time for another one? 👍🏼
Much of my 80s were spent racing 3 wheelers. Late 83 to 87 were on Tecates What an awesome day you all had!
I kept turning my head looking over my shoulder for Bailey and Bentley like I was on the trail with yall. Great job guys. Kinda felt bad for Bailey though, he definitely needed a dirt bike on that trail.
Pit bikes are fun but those 65 sized wheels definitely limit where you can go, especially as a beginner rider. Still it's fun to try as a kid. I never had a pit bike growing up, but I rode plenty of them. They're fun on mini tracks but for trails my XR80 or later on a KLX125 was a lot more fun. I was 10 inches from touching the ground on my RMZ250 so I never rode trails on that thing.
We definitely bit off a LOT that day !
Yeah, I completely agree with you.
Seriously, everything (all of) your content is awesome! I’m upset that my notifications are not working! - Those trails were awesome, beautiful country!!
Ah man, I grew up like you. My brother and I went to school, got off the bus when we got home, and jumped on the dirt bikes and rode til dark every day. My old man had a 1975 Winnebago Brave parked beside the garage and he would take it to town and get it filled a couple times a summer so me and my brother could siphon the gas out for our bikes haha. Good ol days.
Fix it up with your boys would be awesome to learn more new things and it would be an experience!
What a great video man! Me and my brothers grew up on dirt bikes starting with a JR50 then YZ80 then IT400. Made all the memory things happen and put a huge bug eatin grin on my face 😂 How do you tell a rider is having fun? If he has bugs in his teeth😂😂. Thanks for sharing man, GOD bless you and family and all the positive joy y’all spread!
If you think about it. Those days out on trails with a no going back mentality being on your own are no different than jumping into a vehicle and crossing your fingers lol I miss them days so much
Derek, I have to say that this video really pulled on my heartstrings as you said. I lost my father when I was about Bailey‘s age and missed out on a lot of opportunities such as this with him. Seeing you spend quality time with your sons is awesome. I am married now and trying to start a family of my own and hope to enjoy moments just like this. Been watching your channel for a few years now and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. You and your family are an inspiration and it’s awesome to see where you guys are now. Keep up the great work!
Looks like another xr100 is in order so both boys can really attack those trails. Love the world needs more dads like you
The rocks and ruts are very hard on small tires the boys did very good 👍
Derek I loved this video! I rode dirt bikes when I was your boys age and loved every minute of it! It is always great spending fun times with your kids. They will never forget that ride!! My Dad has passed away but I cherish the times we did things together. You seemed to be a great Dad...don't ever stop spending times with your kids!
nice to see you ride different with kids and they get some action in bikes.
