My 2 Year Olds Brake Control Video

I've been working with my son on his PW50 and he is really advancing. We started working on brake control and I surprised how fast he picked it up! Is it normal for a 2 1/2 year old to grasp these critical concepts so early, or is he living up to his name, Hayden, and destined for greatness? You decide.
Love ya buddy!

PS. He has a full face helmet, just wasnt wearing it at the moment.

I'm so glad I bought him the 50 at 2 even though everyone said he was to young, he loves it more then anything and when asked what he wants to do, he always says
"Ride my YAAMAAHA"!

Did I mention he is also a stuntman?

He is 19 now, but I started my son at 3 years old. In his language, he started on a "Kasa-waki". We still tease him on that, to this day.

awesome! i can't wait to get a similar setup. We are almost to 17 months right now. Right now he's got the idea of grasping the bars.

EDIT: vid just to share...
...and his helmet needs to find its way to his head. It was an impromptu ride/vid.

Thanks guys, the fact that after only a few instructions he could grab the brake and bring it to a complete stop just blows my mind!

I got my son a pedal bike when he was 18 months old. No training wheels. By 18.0001 months old he had it mastered.

Z-50 when he was 4. By 4.0001 he was riding it solo.

At 15 he's edging in on the podium in CMRA, and beating his old man by 2-3 seconds a lap.

It's good stuff when your kids like to do what you do, and they are good at it. I never pushed it on him, just give him the right tools and see what happens. My other two kid's bikes just sit in the garage....

Nice. I bought my 5 yo daughter an XR50. She never even let me take the training wheels off of it. I sold it when she lost interest. My son is 4. I wish I had kept it. I need another one

Truly inspiring right there, thanks for sharing dude. My son loves his strider (balance bike) and does wheelies and stoppies on it all the time. He leans it more in turns then I see most adults do on a sportbike!
Any chance you have an XR80 head in your shed?

My wife freaks when he corners fast on it and the training wheel comes off the ground.
