no. its not the Bergenfield bike. I called and spoke with that guy and decided not to buy the bike from him. someone else told me about this one and I jumped on it.

both kids rode it today and the first time they were a little scared and intimidated. that session lasted only a few minutes with each kid. so they both went inside and a few hours later, I asked if they wanted to ride and outside we went. my daughter is very apprehensive in starting anything new but she is my athlete and picks things up fast. I told her to trust me and within the first minute, she was standing and riding with confidence. my son stood up a few time but is more comfortable sitting right now. i'll see if I can get the videos off my phone but I'm proud of how they both did today.
I'm sure they both will be riding better than me sooner than later!!!

yeah I bet. I seriously didn't think they were going to get back on the bikes after the first session. they are real excited to ride again. I've created 2 monsters. and a third one coming.

Awesome!!!! I think you are going to have to buy another one.

My son is now dying to take over his sisters ttr90 but to be honest I am a little apprehensive to let him on it as it has no throttle limiter & he has no fear.

I already bought my Daughter a xr100 but need to teach her to use the clutch & am not looking forward to that

yeah I am going to hold off as long as I can. they both have short attention spans so I think i'll be safe for a while with one. maybe i'll have to buy a second set of batteries when they are riding it longer than 10 minutes at a time.

I just realized that this is the 36volt not the 24volt.
