I dont understand why you'd wait for them to be 11 yrs old before putting them on a quad. But that said we'd need to know size of child, as some 11 yr olds are barely 4ft tall and 65 lbs, while others can be well over 5ft tall and well over 100 lbs.Can anyone tell me what things are necessary to look when buying atv for a 11 year old kid?
prob cuz most atv's say NO ONE ALLOWED UNDER 16 on them ?..lol. yes, we've had this topic plastered to death on here !..lol, I dont have kids ( that I know of ?..lol ) but if I did ?, i'd would judge the kid's ability to ride what ever certain size atv fit his/her build ?, sooo..thats that !..lol.I dont understand why you'd wait for them to be 11 yrs old before putting them on a quad.

i was 12 or 13 when my dad bought me a used honda sl70 back then, 3rd gear was gone in it, but still, that was a fun motorcycle !..lol.I didn't ride till I was 13 , but the second day I had that CT70 , which was my 14th birthday , I was getting a drivers license motorcycle permit , cause you use to get one at 14 in La. back then , got a brake tag the next day and rode to High School on it
you do know, your wasting your breath on this...right ?..lol. I do agree with what your saying ^^^^, but you know as well as I do, parents are gonna do what they want, not whats best for their kids.IMO< safety gear would be top of list before getting a kid on anything with a motor, next will be good proper lessons and training and I don't think I would just go by a kids age or size
a lot has to do with how well developed the kid is between there ears IMO
do they listen well, follow instruction,, under stand the concepts of what BAD can happen if things go bad
how much experience do they have on other things like petal bikes
Maybe I am just old now, but I know for a fact my gen and a few after me, all learned a LOT of things on NON motorized things before graduating to things with motors and that also made us better riders as we already had skills , in off road like, jumping, climbing, and FALLING, there is a right and a wrong way to fall!
this transition IMO is missing in a LOT of spoiled kids these days IMO
where, folks look back and think CRAP I WISH I had this or that when I was a kid, and are now in a financial position they can just SKIP them steps and get it for there kid, grand kid or??
without all that NON motorized experiences, so many of us older folks, have, I doubt, we would be what we are today!
learning how to ride anything, is about steps, start small,. and learn and advance as your SKILLS say so, NOT just sizes or ages!
a full grown adult has NO real right to LEARN how to ride on a 1000cc ATV, just cause they have the means to buy it or age or size
there is just more to it
for the safety side of things,a s long as a kid FITS on an atv, staring smaller is IMO way safer than starting on a bigger cc one
not a lot of take backs or do overs in crashes!
Honda Recon ES I’ve had nothing but good experience with it and I just beat the living hell out of it such redlining in 5th and some jumps and wheelies, I would get your son a nice helmet with some gloves, goggles and maybe a chest protector depending on how fast he’ll be goingCan anyone tell me what things are necessary to look when buying atv for a 11 year old kid?
