    A few years ago with my youngest son at Ezell's Original Fish Camp on the Tombigbee River:

    Spring of 2014 with both of my sons, while returning from another ride to Ezell's we took a side trip to the historic Old Cahawba site:

    Very cool! This is my dad, and my two sons at our hunting land. Scoutdad, what jacket and pants are your boys wearing in the above picture?

    The red and Hi-viz jackets?

    The jackets are First Gear Jaunt jackets, last year's model (2013).
    IMO, great bang for the buck in a jacket!

    The pants are Moose, I think the Expedition model, also 2013.

    Found them on closeout at a couple of online places over the winter.

    BTW, very cool to be taking your boys to hunt and having gramps involved too!

    Are his fire boots his motorcycle boots? One of the guys at our firehouse can't get his kid to wear anything other than his fire boots most of the time.

    Awesome thread. Makes me wish my dad and I rode more together when we were in close proximity. The 3000 mile separation makes it tough.

    Excellent!

    Is that a local course to you ? As I am a recent dirt bike convert it sounds like a good thing.

    :dunno

    It's a required by law for anyone to operate an OHV to take the course. I have to take it to Supervise. I don't know what is offered in other jurisdictions. Sorry.

    Absolutely Awesome!! I wish my son (and daughter too) and I could have started that young. Got him going at 13.

    Heck for that matter I wish I could have rode with Dad. But last bike he had was a 62 FLH that he got the same year I was born. Had some good times a straddle the tank with him on that ole Hog, Sold it when brother got his license and Dad knew he would want to ride it and he was affraid he would get hurt on it.... So down the road it went.


    Good on you!!

    Edit: Guess I should throw this up. Son and I on our first high altitude ride together last July

    Thanks.

    Must be a provincial thing where-ever you are located. Not required here in Alberta. Sounds like it would be a great thing.

    Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) courses are offered all over in the US - and can be found at Motorcycle Safety Foundation (usa)

    For Canada, I see Rider Training- but it doesn't look like they offer dirt classes at all. If you live close to the border, you might check on MSF classes in Montana? Just need a zip code to check availablity from MSF.

    I took the riders course but never heard of a dirt bike one nor one where kids could learn, so my interest was piqued.
