He's already crashed twice! No pain no gain. I totally agree with you, we already have so many memories, and its going so fast. Thank for cameras!

The PW50 has a very low 26" seat height. The training wheels make it impossible for them to tip over. Its shaft drive, so no adjusting the chain, or fear of them getting caught in it. You can adjust a screw on the throttle that controls how much it can be opened, essentially giving you complete control of how fast they can go, which is invaluable. The motor tune is very soft for a 2 stroke, so the powerband is mellow and wont sneak up on the kid, They are very easy to ride and very light. I know people that have had 5 kids learn on them for over 10 years, and they NEVER needed a top end. very reliable, and with the proper instruction and riding area quite safe!

Mine are 17 and 19. We paint them together and ride together. I love those boys and I love riding with them. Take lots of video and don't erase ANYTHING. Even the boring stuff will be great to watch later in life. I deeply regret erasing stuff I thought was boring, ya know, just sitting watchin TV, riding their bikes up and down the driveway for hours, eating, sleeping. I promise you, you will wish you never did it and you'll want more.

When my oldest was 15 he couldn't wait for his safety course and he figured out how to shift my bike while I was out of town. Him and his buddy went for a ride. Of course he crased it....... right into a fire hydrant at 45mph. Had on a helmet that was too big and he busted the out of himself very bad and the bike wasn't much more than a hand full of powder. It WAS an 02GSXR1000. Lots of pain, lots of gain for him. He learned and lucked out.

But - now both my boys are licensed and we LOVE to ride together. Those are great pix and video. Take as much as you can. You WON'T regret it.

I didnt start riding till I bought my own bike when I was 19, so I have never had the pleasure of riding with my pops. I bet its a serious bonding experience that you never forget.

Coincidentally my Dad was over this week and we took a group picture of the three generations all sitting on minis, and it was a great shot.

I told my Dad " This is a picture I will have hanging on my wall in 30 years!" I think it made him a little sentimental. The 3 generation ride will have to come soon!

yep, I am an old man... my Dad has been gone a long time... and some of my favorite memories with him revolve around our bikes, the day he died the last thing he did with me was help me pick up a harley I had dropped in his back yard...the last time I saw him he was waving at me as I rode off....as well as the memories I have of when my sons were small and their bikes...
I had to show your clip to my wife and she loved it too...

Get him off the training wheels as soon as you can. He'll progress faster that way.

Here's my daughter about 10 years ago. She loved the training wheels, but then got too used to them. I yanked them off and, after getting her used to two wheels, she and I would ride side by side on my track in the pasture. Eventually the little PW was sold off (but not before I made it much stouter).



Today my daughter regularly rides around the trails by the house and at Colin's place on one of my TTRs when I'm up there. She's never been super competitive so she doesn't burn down everyone with her Superpole times, but she has a lot of fun.

Awesome VIDEO!
I hope to have him off training wheels after 6-8 months, but since he is just barely 2 we will be taking it slow. I am actually going to try getting out to the Texas Tornado boot camp, such an awesome idea. Seeing Colins son at the flat track races is actually what pushed us over the limit and said " Thats it hes getting a fifty."
Thanks for the advice!

Hopefully your son will take to bikes quickly!

Yep, Hayes flies. He's a good kid, too. He's unafraid to mix it up with the big boys, too, of course.
