That kid was bad ! Face slap to the parents for no gear. I need to get a YSR 50 because I don't want to wreck the only bike I have. Lol.

Badass kid for sure but he was going faster than 5 mph more like 10, an he DID need gear on. Shame on those parents. He could have gotten seriously hurt from a fall even at 5mph.

I can 100% guarantee you that I can not. And not just because my bike doesn't have enough power to do a wheelie with me on it.

My skills lie more in carving trails where none exist off road and enduring very long trips on two wheels.

I sold an identical bike 2 months ago. 4 cycle. Hydraulic breaks, full street lights, signals, electric start -the whole nine. As far as gear - he probably pulls more dangerous stunts on his bicycle going a lot faster. I suppose for principle sake he should gear up for that too?

nah, kids these days wear helmets and elbow pads and knee pads to ride tricycles and bikes with training wheels.
personally i think bumps and bruises when you are young is important.
on that note i think we need to go back to the days when you go hit with a stick or when you dad took his belt off and beat your . i nice piece of leather taught me respect fairly quick like.

i read most of page 1, only about 1 line of the big blocks of text (i am illiterate when it comes to reading a lot)

if the kid is only playing in a parking lot and only going like 5mph, maybe 10, let the fall. i hope the parents feed him a nutritious diet other than cheetos and happy meals. if he falls and has healthy bones, all he should have from a slow parking lot dump is a big cool scab at school the next day

kid 1: billy, how'd you get that big scab?
kid 2: on my moooooteeercyyycllle (and an implied " yeah")
other than the childhood social benefits it teaches the kid valuable life lessons about limits. getting battle scars now can prevent him from killing himself by doing something really stupid later.

i wear gear, sometimes i have been known to ride like a total , but i know to not get too stupid out there, and i know what too stupid is.
as a kid i flipped over handle bars, fell out of a few trees, swung in wasp nest tire swings, went playing in our neighborhood drainage ditch, hunted for frogs, snakes, fish, you name it. carried a pocketknife... you know, pretty much everything most parents would never let their kid do.
we didnt have parental supervision
we didnt have cellphones
i was half a mile from home

and i turned out just fine

and now this is another huge block of text that wont be read.

also i beleive in agatt.

What you had was a 110 4cycle.


that was a 2 stroke, pull start 49cc mini (pocket bike) with cable brakes.

Nevertheless, its dangerous. Its your kid for crying out loud.

I did dumb on a bicycle as a kid, I jumped ramps and got bruised a lot. I could have seriously injured or killed myself. Why? Lack of proper supervision. Lack of responsible parent.

I think we can all agree that a HELMET is recommended. Bumps, bruises, and broken bones build character. Banging a cranium on concrete has other side effects.
