Best Moment of My Life!!

The miracle of life is both a blessing and gift, and it changes a person in ways no one can describe. My son has been the best part of life beside my wife, and he has inspired me in so many ways. He just recently turned two on January 1 of this year. He has been riding fiddies with me since he was 10 months old (Always with a Helment) and we decided after attending the flat track races it was time for him to ride. (Thanks to Collin Edwards son). So we picked up a MINT 2005 PW50, with training wheels for $750. The throttle stop and training wheels along with a mellow motor tune make it the best 1st bike in my opinion. We got it home, and he wont get off it.

His turning and throttle control are unbelievable for a 2 year old.
Heres a short clip, expect WAY more videos to come.
I guess I have my answer to this thread now:

I really feel like starting them off young just gives them so much more confidence, and if you teach them the right way, makes it a safer sport. We started off by riding on my CRF50 together, and eventually he picked up the steering and throttle, which obviously helped him ride solo.

I cant stop smiling thinking about it, and how much fun we will have with the sport as we grow older.

that is some cool ... love it...
i remember when my boys were small and their first bikes... the fun times and yes the times they got hurt,,, but it is all part of growing up,,, the part you cherish when you get old...you always remember the things you did together...and it feels good everytime you think of it...
