Danny was growing pretty well, so I looked around, then bought a Honda XR75 from Tino (AGAIN - his son had outgrown it!), which Danny took to pretty quickly, as well as some larger riding-gear.
He kept "growing-like-a-weed", so new(er) and bigger gear was required, the 'old' stuff kept for WHEN Joey might start riding....
Joey's problem? He couldn't ride a bicycle yet.
I'd push him up (and DOWN) the drive, let go, running beside him, and as soon as he thought I'd let go of him, he'd panic, then crash. FINALLY one day I told him that THIS would be the LAST time I'd EVER do that, so IF he couldn't ride it - "tough noogies" - and I didn't care.
I pushed for that FINAL time, let go and STOPPED - watching him ride the driveway, then he turned and rode back. TIME to try the JR50, so he 'suited-up'
and a few days later [w/ NEW(ER) riding gear] started showing us how it's DONE!
Check that he's ON the pegs, butt OFF the seat, doing a small jump..., and here he is, LANDING it.
I set-up the kids' bikes like I set-up mine, so check the rear tire (about 6 to 8psi), flattened as he touched down.
Eventually, as they grew, they EACH needed BIGGER bikes, so Danny graduated to a Honda XL100, Joey the XR75 (...and someone ELSE in our enduro club bought the JR50), so he needed to learn about shifting...
and was a LITTLE concerned w/ everything NOW required,
INCLUDING using the clutch to get going
but soon became "Mr Joe Cool" after we moved to Alberta....
Finally a pic taken in the Rockies w/ of Calgary, riding w/ Danny (who's holding MY helmet because it TOO was red - his white one on MY bike).
