Kids and dirt bikes..

Opinions?

DH is really pushing to get DS (he'll be 4 next week) a dirt bike but I feel so uneasy about it. Does anyone have kids that ride or started riding at a young age?

My son has one. But he was 10. That was his birthday gift.

No but I would've if I could have. I think with the proper training and safety gear it could be a lot of fun.

Our girl's have a go cart and 4 wheeler they are 5 and 7, we are a motor sports family and the kid's have grown up around things like that. They have also the best protection we can buy.

We've got four wheelers. Dh wants to do dirt bikes, but our kids are 5 &2. Four seems a little young for a dirt bike to me. It depends a lot in the kid & the bike I guess though.

She is precious! That's another thing.. He asked that if I absolutely refuse to budge on the dirtbike he wants to buy a 4 wheeler, I'm more comfortable with them than a dirtbike for sure.

Does he love it? I think I'd be nervous about it no matter what age but I think my DS only being 4 plays a big part in me not wanting to get him one.

My ds (5) has a 4 wheeler and wants a dirt bike he will likely get one on the near future my dd (3) will start riding in the next year or so most likely. With the right gear and training It can be safe

In my PERSONAL opinion it is much better to go from 4 wheels to 2. Let them learn the speed and the feel and show responsibility and then move on to dirt bikes:)

That's my way at least.
