    So what's a good age to start your kid learning to ride a motorbike?

    Hi

    Thanks guys. Searched a long time to find that ride for her. AND yes she does enjoy it very much. It is gold to see her enjoy something. Cerebral palsy and can't do anything for herself

    And now we enjoy it together

    FWIW, I started my older two kids at age 6. The third is only two, so he's gonna have to wait a bit! I don't like training wheels for a variety of reasons, wo I waited until they could ride a bike confidently without help.

    Good on you - excellent way to spend time with your daughter!

    My daughters started at 4 and 7 with a small 50 cc quad. They were able to learn gas and brake functions without having to worry about balance as much. It also had a parent safety tether switch similar to a jet ski type kill switch but the parent held the line. If they headed towards the fence of something, just pull the line and kill the motor on them. Once they both could ride their bicycles well, we moved up to bikes.

    My son is now just over 7 months old, planning on doing pretty much the same with him.

    The kids smiles can barely fit into their helmets! Great photo.

    Why isn't the dog smiling I wonder?

    Bodi has major attachment issues and feels compelled to stay between me and the grandkids. So when they piled into the Ural he ran and bounded into it, catching us all by surprise, but then he was sad because my wife was telling him he had to get out.

    But he loves it and smiles big when he gets to ride:

    That pic of her washing your bike is a classic. Way to cute.
