FORT MYERS, Fla. - A grandfather bought 2 motorcycles when his grandchildren were born, now after nearly 2 decades the teens got to open their gift.
19 year old Kyle Knight and his brother, 18 year old Brett, have waited their entire lives to open a pair of boxes purchased in the early 90's.
"I've been looking forward to it forever all I've been able to see is the front of it and a little bit of the color," said Kyle.
Their grandfather, Richard Knight, bought a Harley Davidson 883 Sportster for his then infant grandson, Kyle.
Two years later when Brett was born he bought another, a new 1994 model, each costing nearly $7,000.
But to enhance the anticipation, Richard locked the boxes away - leaving only a peep hole for the boys to look through as they grew up.
"Once motorcycling gets in your blood it never goes away, and I just wanted to experience it with my grandsons and my sons together," said Richard.
The teens attend Florida Gulfcoast University and both have their licences to ride.
The group has planned a 3-day ride in the North Carolina mountains in October.
