New bike suggestions - April 6, 2009, 01:21 PM

Not what you think. I am not a noob asking if I should get a 1000 or a 1300 for my first bike. Also, I am not coming out of retirement.....yet. My question is what's your opinion for a good first bike to get a kid. I learned on a 50 waaayyyy back in the days so I'm thinking along those lines.

I am planning now for when the little monster turns 6, so I have some time to plan this the right way. Ok...let's hear it.

Men are qualified for civil liberties in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites: in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity...Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. ~Edmund Burke, Political Theorist and Philosopher

The first bike I ever operated was an early '70s Hodaka Wombat 125cc 2-stroke dirt only. Man I wish I had kept that bike because it would be so sweet to have it now. The thing with that was that there was no explosive power band like with the 2-strokes that came a little later so I didn't get in any trouble while learning. Just a ton of sane, level-headed dirt and gravel road riding in rural NE Kansas where the cops, on the very rare occasions you actually came across one, would not bat an eye at you on a dirt bike with no lights or registration. Oh yeah, and there was hayfield terrace jumping after I got comfortable with it.

Small dirt bikes 125cc or less are the way to start 'em, in my opinion. If you can find an older dirt or enduro that is NOT ready for MX racing, all the better. A bike that is not suitable for MX racing will instill an appreciation for the charm and adventure of 2 wheeling rather than feed the inner go-fast beast lurking in most boys.

Started my son on a Suzuki JR50. They're short, and he had the training wheels off just before his 4th birthday. He's on a CRF50 right now, and will hopefully be able to fit on the 70 soon.

Pshhh... You need to loose love to learn how to appreciate love, you need to get lost in order to find your self, you need to crash to learn how to avoid it.

When your six, your body is practically made of nails, and if one of those nails happen to snap, their youthful regenerative abilities will come in handy.


Nudist: What kind of power we talking about here...? I've never tried or had an opportunity to try one of those bad ass little bikes.
