My daughter, when she was five or six, begged me every day for a new bicycle. She was a cute little blonde girl and I remembered when my brother and I learned how to ride bikes!! After many bumps and bruises we learned how. I didn't want my little girl to go through that. One of her little friends came over to play with her. I went out to check on them after five minutes to see my daughter on her friend's bike. Just as I opened my mouth to scream my daughter just went on her way peddling like a champ!!

             EEK!                  WOW! Good for him. The next Jeremy McGraff!

Remember the original "On Any Sunday"? The beginning of the movie has a little guy, five or six?, doing a wheelie all the way down a street. That was Jeff Ward!

The kid has an unfair advantage. He obviously has a head start over most other kids because of motorcycle skill genetics.   Bigok

Maybe. Mom, Dad, both grandfathers, and a bunch of uncles all were motocross and off-road racers. He's a fairly timid kid for now, so it may not be the best sport for him. I've also talked to his dad (my son-in-law) about maybe getting him in a quarter-midget. I did that for a few years as a kid. I also know the president of the local quarter-midget club well. They have a loaner/beginner program with two cars available. He said my grandson could have one of those spots, if we wanted to give it a try.

When they're younger they bounce good. Good learning experience and it will make him tougher.

My daughter Kendall sent me a video today. They've got my three year-old grandson riding the four-wheeler now. My son-in-law is working from home now. This is what happens... Wink

Saturday I was out on my WR. Had to pull some broken twigs and leaves out of the handguards cause I was looking at the branches sticking out next to the trail instead of where I needed to go.  

Bet your grandson is very soon a better trail rider than me, maybe already.   Lol
