    Great thread. You guys got me all choked up talking about "lasts" We're still in the stage of "firsts" - I'm not ready to think about the other side.

    Electric is the wave of the future :) Maybe. My girls (Age 6 1/2) share an Oset 20R.

    But they'll still help out when dad needs to fix his old fashioned gas bikes :) Best clutch replacement ever. Short of doing the final torquing of the bolts, I never touched a tool.

    Did you seriously teach your 8 year old girl to flip the bird? Why would any dad do that?

    She knows it's not the right thing to do.
    I said it was just for the picture.

    Have you guys given any though to the fact that this was a staged photo and we were not out for a ride?

    Back down with the judgements for a second. It's mighty brave to critique my parenting with a keyboard but ask yourself if you live in a glass house before you cast a stone.

    Yes we rode up and down our residential street that has little to no traffic 3 times in first gear (doubt 10mph was attained). Yes both of the parents are in the photo with the kids and evaluated the risks involved. The likely hood of an injury happening was about as likely as falling down while walking in your living room. When was the last time you had a helmet on for that?

    Slow down a little.... I was hoping that would be your reply. I just hate to see a pic of a bike in motion with no helmets. As someone else said.... makes me cringe.

    I had a front pouch with my week old daughter in it on facebooks and everyone gave me grief. Slight dirt track for .5 miles to bros house and everyone is a professional crash statistician. I'll try to find the pic. Ride on peeps!

    Here is a picture of my daughter Heather and grand daughter. Heather made many weekend trips with me. Started her at 7yrs old. We have many miles together in all weather.

    Here's my daughter back when she used to race ATVs. At one time she was racing the ATVA Nationals in the 70cc modified and the 50cc stock classes and sponsored by MSR, Elka suspension, SixSixOne and WRH Racing.

    Today, she's a Sophomore in college working on a BS in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech on a Full Ride Air Force ROTC Scholarship. A few weeks ago, she passed the MSF BRC and we got her a Suzuki TU250x.

    Looks like it's starting. My daughter asked if she could go for a ride on my Reflex. There's no back pegs, so I put her on the front - like always. That's when she asked if she could drive!


    She's got a little electric scooter - but is asking for her own dirtbike now.
