  • My kids were like 6 months when they got their first ride.
    It wasn't very far or long but they got the feel

  • we pretty much live on 4 wheelers all summer long, love going on nice mountian rides that are nice slow safe rides. Is it crazy to put DS (4 months) in a moby and go for a ride? I personally don't see anything wrong with it because the roads we go on are all old dirt roads no one else is on. opinions??

  • I don't see the problem as long as you are comfortable with / used to the area you will be riding on and you feel safe doing it : )

  • My oldest rode on one (first and only time) when he was like 20 months old. I only allowed it because my uncle was begging me to let him. I'm glad he did because he died a week later. My youngest hasn't been on one yet.

  • My husband has one, and our boys are 3 and 4. My older son is terrified of the noise and I would never force him. My 3 yr old is too young. If I can't find a helmet to fit them, they are not old enough. I have a friend who had her 8 yr old lose his leg rolling one...I am NOT about to go through that kind of thing all for a ride on a dangerous piece of machinery made for an adult.
