    At the rate these guys will be outgrowing bikes, I don't think I will be getting a new one anytime soon.

    Hey Eric, thanks for the comment. My kids are real jazzed about seeing people's comments on their riding.

    Man, you'll have to let them show you how to ride soon! Looks like motocross in the making! And they like messing with the local livestock. That was funny!

    Fantastic! Where are you guys riding? I usually take my kids out north of hwy 74 on mile marker 4. It's actually tough to find a place in the valley that's not too rocky for the tiny suspension, or too sandy for the tiny tires...
    The area you're in looks more like Prescott.

    Good guess. My parents have 160 acres roughly 33 miles NW of Prescott. That's where I grew up.
    Getting together sounds like fun... we just have to figure out the logistics.

    Great stuff! So good to see 'em doing something besides video games. Started my oldest at 9 and he'll be 33 in a week. Still rides. Second son started a little later - mid 20's - but now rides every day.

    Good on ya for getting them out there. Some great memories to be had along the way. :clap

    It's hard to keep 'em geared up because they keep outgrowing it! TeamTaz just gave us some of his kids used gear so we are all current again except for some boots for the 8 year old. (Thanks again Bob!)

    A little story behind that... I told him to stay on the road because his Grandpa didn't want us mashing the grass that the cows eat. He stayed on the road... even when there was a cow in the way!!!!:clap
    I tried to get them enthused with this several years ago and it just didn't take. They both had to reach an age and a size where they felt confident on the bikes I had to offer. Then they found the addiction to it!:clap My 11 year old told me, "Dad, you know that movie Why We Ride? I get it now.":clap
