Great stuff! So good to see 'em doing something besides video games. Started my oldest at 9 and he'll be 33 in a week. Still rides. Second son started a little later - mid 20's - but now rides every day.

Good on ya for getting them out there. Some great memories to be had along the way.

I might have to make this my new avatar! ...or change my signature to reflect.

It's way better than the HusaSaki.

It's hard to keep 'em geared up because they keep outgrowing it! TeamTaz just gave us some of his kids used gear so we are all current again except for some boots for the 8 year old. (Thanks again Bob!)

A little story behind that... I told him to stay on the road because his Grandpa didn't want us mashing the grass that the cows eat. He stayed on the road... even when there was a cow in the way!!!!

I tried to get them enthused with this several years ago and it just didn't take. They both had to reach an age and a size where they felt confident on the bikes I had to offer. Then they found the addiction to it! My 11 year old told me, "Dad, you know that movie Why We Ride? I get it now."

Good on you for teaching them. Good on them for learning well. Watching kids learn to ride warms my heart.

My 8 year old does not have enough strength to lift the shifter so I've got to figure out how to get him to use his whole leg to shift up.

Only for the Factory riders! I bet it runs a lot better in 'Berg trim. Check out that end pipe, that looks to be the real deal.

I do like them wheels though, maybe DK can score a set for his buddy's?

Next time we ride together DK, you gotta try out the 'Berg, it will make you

More video's please.

I'm afraid to ride your Berg... it would probably cost me thousands.
