My 7 year old son went to the MSF Dirtbike School in Alpharetta this Saturday. He was so excited because he has waited a long time for this! This is him looking at the training area when we first arrived...
Image

He was thrilled just to see himself in all the gear :)
Image

He was in a class with 3 other kids his age and Coach Drew, who was very good at teaching the skills one step at a time with lots of patience and humor. :D
Image

It was amazing to see the progress from the beginning of the class just learning to control the throttle with legs out not on footpegs... to the end when they were crossing logs and weaving between cones and practicing standing. For 3 out of the 4 children (including my son) this was their first time on a motorcycle so they accomplished so much! ::applause:: ::applause:: Prior to this class I had heard a lot of good comments about the MSF courses. I truly was impressed with Coach Drew and what he was able to do with the kids in one days time. Everything was so organized and structured great for little ones. My son barely wanted to take a lunch or water break he was so anxious to go back and ride! If you are considering this for children or adults I highly recommend it. ::up::

Image

When class was over the first thing he said was, "Can I come back tomorrow?" Later when I asked if he wanted a motorcycle now he said "YES!" I asked how bad did he want one? He said "100% bad!" :)
