If they can ride a bicycle then get a Honda XR 70. Stop the quad madness.
Auto clutch so does not get much easier.
Quad teaches nothing but push the gas and go fast with no fear then comes a bank and things go wrong fast.
Sorry, I have pulled more than one quad out of the pond and lifted them off kids pinned under them. If you want a quad then get something big enough to do utility work around your property, snow plow for your drive...pull a wagon to give rides around your land...pull sleds. Once a kid learns some respect by falling over a few times on 2 wheels then they might have some respect for actions and can be trusted to use a adult sized quad.
Ava would probably be fine. Zac ... well :shrug: :angel:

Sounds like I need to borrow someone's small bike and let them try before deciding.

done. will let you know what weekend next spring I'll need it.

I'm going to borrow a bike, an ATV; and then get Bucho to bring Caleb over with his Oset. Let them try each and have Caleb show them how it's done.

Most ATVs I've seen on trails are so slow I can't possibly see them injuring themselves. Except maybe a whisky throttle case :lol2:

I bet most of us on here know at least one person who has been hurt or worse on a four wheeler. I believe that they are the most dangerous toys you could get. Motorcycles aren’t perfect but at least if you wreck they don’t chase you down and pound you into the dirt most of the time. Just saying!!

and ... ATVs/4-wheelers do more damage to trails than bikes. It makes getting trails a hard sell.
