We're putting a few dollars together to get him a full-face with goggles. I like the full-face better as well, for protection.I had a Honda Z50 in 1971 when I was 12 years old and had to figure out what a choke did. And how to keep from killing myself. Learned a lot in a short while. That spark plug would soot up and foul if I forgot to turn the choke off.
Yea, learned a lot and my parents should have forced me to wear a helmet. Nobody else wore a helmet back then so I didn't but I was lucky and nothing bad ever happened. But that does not change anything and I should have worn a helmet and I absolutely do today, a full face style.
