No matter what, I'd definitely keep them on the bicycle parallel to that. Keeps up their skills and kids need exercise to grow strong bones, don't let them get lazy.

They say that even professional racers often ride bicycles more than they actually ride motorcycles.

I rode my sons bike to show him how to jump and do wheelies. The next day I was soo sore!! Yikes , I am outta shape.
But yes, they ride their bikes more than they do the motorcycles.

The 6 yr. old wants to go check out the stunters and he is trying to do stunts on his bicycle.hehehehe

My X-girlfriends son had and electric and he was 3 when he started riding and he didnt even know how to ride a bicycle yet. id take him on spins around the neighborhood on my bike. he loved it. So id have to say it just depends on the kid.

each kid is different. Our first could swim out to a sailboat 100 yards off shore before he could talk. When we bought him his first bicycle when he was 5 his little brother who was two jumped on it and rode it around before the older kid could do it.

always make sure they ride bicycles well before motorcycles.

if you want fat kids get them 4 wheelers.

Every kid is different. I started both kids on the PW50. My daughter started at 7 years old and picked it up pretty quick then moved on to the XR70. She laid it down 3-4 times and doesn't really care to ride anymore.

At first my son, who is 5, wouldn't even go near the PW50 while it was running. I had to take it real slow with him - now I can't keep him off of it. He brags to his friends after a lay-down. Could be the age difference but I've seen the same behavior with kids of the same age.
