My dad got me started on a motorcycle when I was 6. I'll never be able to thank him enough.

**I couldn't help but notice a lot of this was shot at Racetown where I had my last motocross wreck

I got my 6 year old a TTR50E. Was choosing between a PW50, TTR50 or a CRF50. All of them are great bikes. Biggest reason for my choice was that the TTR has electric start and the amount of times she dumps the bike its just easier to have her use an electric start.

Like I said at the track, im looking for some company for her so she can ride with other kids because she has completely lost interest riding alone. So if you are getting your son a bike let me know and we can all head out to hungry valley and putt around .
