Our family rule was no motorcycle riding until riding a bicycle with no training wheels. The biggest issue with the transition from peddles to throttles is the chassis weight. Throttle stops and remote kill switches makes it quite easy, actually. Getting them to pick it up and start it on their own is a whole new game.
Our rule when I was 5. Helmet mandatory. Also, if you can't start it you can't ride it. Had a yzinger 80 when I was 5. Got a yz60 when I was 6.5. We rode desert most big holiday weekends and us kids always had the kiddy track laid out. The kill switch was on the handlebar, not in dads hand. Lol also I remember I wasn't allowed outta first gear on the pw! Wow good memories
