you will probally find most will read this and mumble something about noisy quads and bikes but i only wish i could take my kids out to something like this, it teaches then a lot about being responsible and embeds in them very good driving skills.... those smiles on the kids say it all, well done ......
CR 50-70 to an 800cc ??? well of course ya blown away LOL
Cheers

I have only taken the kids Quad and bike riding a dozen or so times and I can see a level of responsibility coming out of them , With the starting and switching off and the safety equipment helmets gloves e.t.c they know they aren't allowed to ride with out them.
I still have to remind the boys to slow up in the corners.
It was a bit cool in the mornings but all three of my kids were up before 6:30am putting body armour, knee pads, boots, helmets waiting till every one else woke so they could start riding.
That riding gear nearly walked on its own to the laundry by the time we got back.

Good onya Michael for ensuring the kids have all the right gear too.

We used to go our riding at least once a month a while back. The boy has a TTR 90 and the daughter a cheapie quad. I used to have a TTR250.

I had a bad accident on the bike and since then , even the kids have lost interest in riding. My own stupid fault. Was riding along a fence track only wearing steel cap boots and somehow managed to stick a fallen tree branch straight through my foot.

Have seen many examples though of parents letting their kids ride in shorts, no helmets, thongs etc.

Lucky for them....it'll NEVER happen to them *rolls eyes*

Hi Michael,

Its good to see your kids loving the great outdoors, Its the best way to raise them, a lot better then playing video games.

Those Outlanders have got some stick, Em thinking about getting one myself.

Cheers Wilko
