    Slightly off topic but I felt the need to brag. I took my 8 year old for his first ride on the Tigger today. We did about 50 miles and he had a great time. Next time I'll take pix. :deal

    Here is one of Colter (7) on his ATV yesterday. It was closing day for Telluride, so we skied in the morning, then went to a nearby ranch for ATV's and fishing. Good day in Colorado!

    Spring Break in Moab last week. My daughter Skyler (5) officially became a "Two wheeler" on her motorbike. 2-3 clothes changes a day...bit different than her Brother who would sleep in his gear if I let him!:D

    Course Moab and the sand is not always the friendliest of environs for new riders. It was a teaching moment...your riding buddies (even Dad) will always take pictures first and help second!

    My best friends kids and mine (the two in the middle), growing up riding. Kids LOVED it!

    He just sent his off last week, too much procrastinating (gets it from his mom :rofl). But they said he should be able to get on no problem. We have several boys from our Troop working PV this year, including a former member coming back from Florida! Should be fun for them. What is your son's name (my son's name is Tristan Sauer), and I will have him keep an ear/eye out for him? We are holding his Eagle Court of Honor :clap this Sunday, so now he can focus on having a fun summer!

    Just thought i would post this answer from George with "stay on the trial" org relating to age restrictions.
    Essentialy saying on BLM/Forest service rds no age restriction
    County property/rds..... make there own rules , so you need to check


    Following are the Colorado regulations pertaining to your question:

    #504 – OPERATION OF OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLES

    a. Where the State, the United States, or any agency thereof, has designated any public street, road, or highway of this state open to off-highway vehicles or where local political subdivisions have authorized by ordinance or resolution the establishment of off-highway vehicle routes to permit the operation of off-highway vehicles on city streets or county roads pursuant to the authority granted in C.R.S. 33-14.5-108(1), or upon public land in this state, no person shall operate an off-highway vehicle while carrying any person or riding in any position that will interfere with the operation or control of an off-highway vehicle or the view of the operator.

    b. Where the State, the United States, or any agency thereof, has designated any public street, road, or highway of this state open to off-highway vehicles or where local political subdivisions have authorized by ordinance or resolution the establishment of off-highway vehicle routes to permit the operation of off-highway vehicles on city streets or county roads pursuant to the authority granted in C.R.S. 33-14.5-108(1), no person under the age of ten years may operate an off-highway vehicle on such public street, road, or highway of this state or on such city street or county road. No person ten years of age or older may operate an off-highway vehicle on such public street, road, or highway of this state or on such city street or county road unless:

    1. The person has in his possession a valid driver’s license issued by the State of Colorado or another state; or

    2. The person is accompanied by and under the immediate supervision of a person who has in his possession a valid driver’s license issued by the State of Colorado or another state. The phrase “under immediate supervision” shall mean that, at a minimum, the unlicensed operator is within direct visual contact of the licensed supervisor.


    These regulations pertain to any "public street, road, or highway open to off-highway vehicles." What is important to realize is that all state highways, and most county roads, are closed to OHVs that are not licensed. ATVs and Side-By-Sides can't be licensed in Colorado at this time. There are a few counties and towns that allow ATVs and Side-By-Sides on some of their roads. You have to check with each jurisdiction. You can't assume that there is adequate signage in the field. BLM and Forest Service primitive roads do not have have the same restrictions as the "public" roads. You would be able to let you child ride on those roads and not be ticketed. Remember, though, that every OHV operating on designated motorized routes on public lands must have a state OHV registration or non-resident OHV permit for each vehicle. Also, with apologies for stating the obvious, we always highly recommend that everyone operating an OHV, but especially children, wear helmets, over-the-ankle boots, and other protective gear. We also discourage having passengers on ATVs unless specifically designed for "two up" riding. It can result in very unsafe situations.

    I hope this gives you a clear answer to your question. Thanks for checking in with the web site.

    Well, its official. My daughter Aven (5) will be the first person in my family to own brand spanking new motorcycle. Just arrived today, an OSET!!! The wife and girls have been out of town for a week. They get home tonight and I'm going to have it sitting in her room for a mega surprise. She has no idea!!!
    Stay tuned for pics of the happiest 5 year old in Placerville!!!

    So we got the OSET all charged up and snuck in a ride this morning before the snow came. I ziptied the foot pegs up to start. She is used to that form from the Strider. Aven cant flat foot both sides on the OSET so its just barely small enough for her. I figured it would be later in the summer before she was really ready but we went over to the park and hit the grass right away. She was timid at first and the bumpy grass was causing issues so we moved onto the pavement, after about five minutes she could balance and hold her feet up as long as she wanted. I then dropped the pegs and she put her feet right up there and that was that. This vid is about twenty to thirty minutes into her first dirt bike!! She's pretty amped up. see what I did there?

    I just picked up a KDX 50 and it has a training wheel setup which is from Haul Master. It is a single axle with two mounting bars at right angles which appear would attach to the foot peg bars but it did not have any other hardware. Before I start to re invent the wheel I am asking for any suggestions on the best way to attach this. Thanks

    You've got it right, they usually attach to the foot peg brackets and nothing else.
