    Great times ahead for the both of you.....he will likely follow you around for some years then when he is about 13-14 he will go by and you will never be able to keep up …

    Hey.... the good news is that when he is about 45 he might want to go for a ride with you on a old man's bike .......

    First there was Joeband,

    then there was Joedad,

    and now there is Joekid .

    Congrats on the new bike and this new chapter in your family. What mods do you have planned for that TTR, maybe a TTR125 engine and a fatter rear tire?

    Have fun,

    Brian

    So Joe, how long to properly teach him good riding skills so he can come out and get properly corrupted by us NorCal Nutjobs?
    Bikerjosh may be back before too long also. Perhaps an easy off-road play day celebrating both new and old can be planned for this spring or summer.

    He looks more like a future WR250 guy than a future TDub guy.
    Did you get other protective gear for him? Those TTR's a fast little suckers.
