Cross threading here..posted in regional. But Hi!

I live in southern Colorado in the San Luis Valley. I've been buying my kids dirt bikes (PW50, TTR90 & YZ85) so they can mess around in the area. I found my lack of experience on a dirt bike a hindrance to teaching them. I've always wanted a dirt bike myself since I was a kid, and finally at 39 yrs old I found an '87 XT350 in near perfect condition for $900. I want to take a few of the daughters (6, 8, 13) and myself to a decent but speedily efficient riding school to better prepare ourselves. I have several children, but as it is right now, the 3 listed are the interested and 'ridable' ages. So, in the long run, what ever school we choose must realize that I WILL be a return customer ;) .

We usually ride in the chico's and dirt and haven't ridden any mountain trails. I'd like to ride simple dirt road/trails with the kids when we get experience. My immediate concern is safety. I own a one-man heating and air conditioning service company and a simple broken bone could be devastating to our family's income. I realize that accidents are highly likely, thus, until my company grows and I hire another tech(s), I'll limit my riding to simplicity. The temptation is going to suck!

So, I'm here to read about your experiences, suggestions, instruction, etc

I'm looking into a school in Pueblos, since it seems to be the closest:
Company: WENMARK COMPANY
Site: WENMARK COMPANY
Phone: (303) 791-8161
Address: PUEBLO, CO 81006

Does anybody have experience with this company?

Pix? BTW, it just happened that we ended up with Yamahas.... never really went out looking for specifically yamaha. but i'm happy with em!
