Cute boy, Critz. You obviously love him because he's putting fingerprints on your tank.

Re: Converting to bladeism

That is too cool. Bring 'em up right. Since I have been taking my daughter riding she has noticed more motorcycles on the road.

Re: Converting to bladeism

Heh, just this morning my oldest (4 yrs) told me he wanted a red, black, and gray motorcycle (the RC) and a red and white motorcycle (the old 929 colors). He got his first bicycle last week for his birthday and has already crashed it numerous times, but has yet to cry about it or not get right back on the thing. The deal with the wife is that if he can ride it by his 5th birthday without training wheels then I can get him a dirt bike.

Re: Converting to bladeism

Definitely the way to go, start a kid on a dirtbike as soon as he's not scared of it and wants to. Never, I repeat never let them learn on a quad. Kids do great on a dirtbike if you give them gear, take them to a grassy field or soft sand pits, they can rail around and fall over to their hearts content and you don't have to really worry about high speed crashes because they'll crash long before they get going that fast. On the other hand, put a kid on a atv and he can hammer it til there's nowhere to go but up the tree in front of him(or her). I actually bought a tiny little 50cc dirtbike for all my nieces/nephews to ride. It was old and cheap but it worked. They all loved coming over and riding it. Their parents weren't thrilled but hey, what are nice uncles for.

Heh, you don't know my oldest son. Before we got the bike he just about refused to ride his tricycle any longer and always wanted to ride his little brothers big-wheel. I asked him why and he told me 'because my tricycle has the slow wheels on it'. I asked him to elaborate so he got on it and pedaled as fast as he could across the sidewalk. Then he came back and said 'See, it has the slow wheels on it! It won't go fast!'

That's great lfg! *Kids are cool, way to go w/ the deal w/ the wife!!

EDIT: Oh yeah, good goin' Critz!! I'm trying to get my one buddy's daughter acquainted just the same. She's only 1 1/2, but she's on her way there. She has a toy rocking police motorcycle that she can stand up on the seat of(didn't learn it from me). Gotta get the stunna blood out of her
