    A good ride ends with fries and a root beer!!!!

    We covered around 25 miles of fire roads, he hit 3rd gear and a top speed around 30mph and cruised around between 20-25 mph. He even led the way back to the truck when done without looking at the GPS I had him carry. It was only his second time on a bike with a clutch!!!! I'm very proud of him!!!!!!! Looks to be the first of many more rides!!! :ricky

    I would love to do the same with my boy, but over here in France if the cops catch him/us (no license or insurance) they can and would seize his bike and I'd get a world of problems too.

    Well done possibly one of the few ways to lure them away from computer games.

    We are very lucky!!! The area we were ridding is extremly remote and they care more about if you have paid for your land access permit :deal

    Here in Oklahoma the kids can get there motorcycle license for 250 cc or less when they turn 14

    I have ridden a few places that were great,and have rode with some great people. But my greatest rides are the ones taken with my son.
    He started riding at 6 and is 13 now we don't get to ride as much as I would like but he has other things going on,right now it's football season he's plays wide reciever and also plays a very good cornerback on defense.

    He talks about us doing some dual sport rides when he gets his license,I hope he still feels that way when the day comes that we can. He likes hearing about my rides and wants to enjoy them with me,which makes me feel pretty good.

    No, it's 16 and so many months before you can take the permit test.

    I remember back in maybe 87 or 88 we took a vacation to visit family in TX and stopped at my mom's cousin place in OK. I remember her son had a Honda 185 that he rode to school and thought how cool that was. I am surprised with all the goofy law changes that one is still in play.

    Good for OK:clap

    Nice ride. If he's like my son, the most memorable part of the would be the lunch and a root beer.
    Riding with him are some of the best experiences/memories.
    Can't wait until he gets his permit in a few years so we can really take off.
