Tima Kuleshov was less than two when he got started riding bicycles. Shortly thereafter he moved up to a powered motorcycle and started riding competitively.

At age 4, Tima started competing and not just in one type of competition. He is a roadracing, motocross, and stunt ride competitor. At 4 years of age, his fastest bike could reach speeds of up to 45 MPH.

Tima seems to enjoy the competition and perhaps the attention that he gets by competing, but is it a good idea to start a 4-year-old in competitive motorcycle events?

Some may question a parent’s decision to do so since they say the risk of injury or death is higher. Other’s think that giving a child that age a motorcycle is perfectly acceptable and grows the child’s physical and mental abilities.

So what do you think? At what age would you start your child on a powered motorcycle? Should there be a minimum age for a child to enter motorcycle competitions?
