Kids riding dirt bikes?

I'd like to purchase a fun dirt bike for my 9 year old daughter (PW 80, TTR90, etc) in which she can learn and play. We live inner loop and as a single working mom, I know taking her out to a track just won't be a daily adventure.

Can anyone give me some ideas as to where I can take her to ride that's nearby and easy for a quick jaunt on a weekday without a haul?

Any and all advice is much appreciated!

Thanks,
Jennifer

Rio is going to be closer than three palms.. Shoot, give her an open field somewhere to learn to ride it first, that's what I'd do..

My only advice is to cover the little rider in gear, head to toe if possible. Helmet, boots and gloves at a minimum...I can imagine smiling kids just thinking about it!

How big is she? Asking because I have some new Thor gear that my son grew out of before he ever got a chance to use it. Adult xs gloves adult size 28 pants and small jersey. You can have it if she can use it.

Welcome.... we used to ride behind the house growing up in a empty field and never had any issues.

I have a few PW80s I'm getting ready to sell, one pink, one blue. Both run well. I agree with the gear, my boy has been on one since he was two and it has saved him many a time.

This is all so awesome! Thanks!

Any ideas on where some open fields to ride might be?

There is a retention pond/field at S. Post Oak and 610 just inside the loop. There are two entrances to it off the feeder road. There is an easy trail that circles the whole thing and also some hills and stuff to challenge them a bit. I've ridden off road there a million times and never been bothered. There is a member with the screen name Grindio. He has a PW50 and a bunch of youth gear he is trying to get rid of for a good price.
