Looks good :) Besides the occasional idiot move, people below the age of 16 really dont have much of a problem learning how to ride, and doing a good job of it. I learned when I was 7 (on my 50cc) and only hit a tree once! :laugh:

I wish I was a rich uncle and could buy him one. Maybe if a dirt cheap fixer upper comes along I may get it for him. His parents allready bought him my old 2001 Blazer Extreme for him when he turns 16. My brother in law uses it as commuter for now. Hes closer to 15 so it wont be long.

great! do you take him to other areas to ride? i taught my 13 year old son to ride my 400ex. it is a big machine to start learning on. now he wants to show his friends, that he can ride. the problem is that i only have one machine for now. you are a good uncle, it is not easy to teach a teen!!!

Ya, I let him take it up and down the road in Wisc.(very deselect sand gravel rd.) when we go up there w/ the family. He usually gets to ride next to me on the honda 200 3 wheeler we have up there. There is a big open field at the cabin we ride in and lots of woods snowmobile trails around the house and cabin. If he rides mine, I tell him just take a short ride and come back. I really dont trust him off on his own with it just yet.
