teaching the kid

Yup stuff like that just happens you cant control it anyway , my son needs to listen to me his riding style is very different legs in and he is getting to big to ride it like that so his turns and lean angles make him feel wobbly we will be working on that this sunday afternoon and hopefully get him up to speed he is not afraid of the bike and how fast it is he just has to turn wide with his riding style and then everyone gets under him . We will have that fixed over the weekend and he will be back at it next weekend

Re: teaching the kid

my son is convinced that my cag is his. He's only 4 so imma give it at least another year before handin the controlls over to him.

i understand where your comin from. I didnt have the luxury of a dad that showed me those things, but i had a mom that was into motorsports. So by the time i was 5 she had me on a honda cr50r. I didnt know how to ride a bicycle and here she was teaching me how to kickstart and shift gears.
woot woot thanks mom.

Anyways...
sr, thats way awesome that you and the kid do stuff like that together. Hopefully, he appreciates it!

some days he does some days he doesnt and i dont make him ride if he doesnt want to yesterday i turned in about 2 hrs of practice time and he watched the whole time learning i guess be he said he didnt want to ride so that was cool with me . no my 5 yr old on the other hand has a pocket quad he loves it and would ride for hrs on end if you would let him . he is one of thos special kids that everything comes natural, he has been racing BMX bikes since he was 3 , riding the quad, he is the only kid on a T ball team in there league that can hit fly balls to the outfield grass and he is pitched to. T ball just doesnt make sense to him as he has never hit off of a T before and everyone is cool with it if he gets pitched to by a coach . My older boy does all the same stuff he just isnt the biggest sporty person but he is trying and having fun

Re: teaching the kid

im hellaz good at any sport you throw at me and im naturally cut (doctor says im genetically gifted because i dont work out and im ripped and when i do work out i gain about 15 pounds of muscle mass in a month). but i have some weird condition in which i get very dry throat and dry larynx so i choke and throw up so i cant play sport to much. thats why i ride and i paintball. my parents never made me do anything, there so cool. my dad and mom didnt go to college but they got lucky with very well set jobs (my dads a manager of like all the macy's stores in like 7 states). they let me drink but i dont, i know i dont because the freedomes they gave me as a child and as of now. let your kids grow alongside you but not in a course you choose for them. you let them grow naturally they are bound to be great

Re: teaching the kid

yea same here, i was really good with baseball, i played since i was 5, and i grew out of it at like 16 1/2 and the i lost the encouragement to keep goin, i had the talent to pitch the best, but all i got was either the bench or the outfield. Then i got a kx125 from my step dads grandpa, oooohhhhhh man was that the junk to learn how to ride on, and then i rode a x15 and i was hooked man, like a bass with a lure... lol.
But yea i was introduced to motorsports until i was 16sh to 17, and i finally got the bike like 3 months ago
