Thanks guys for all the nice comments! :) We are going to have to start shopping for a bike and gear sooner than we thought. And yes Dixie, I think he must have gotten the good riding skills from my genes... ::smirk::

Hope to see you guys soon out at HP. ::up:: :D

Amy, I may have some extra gear Lane's size, so let me know what you need, sizes, and how soon you need them, and I will check.

Michele thanks so much for offering to check for gear. ::up:: That would be awesome! We are thinking about looking for a bike this week because we are off on Spring Break, but he wouldn't really be riding regular for a month or so other than the backyard. His sizes are: pants size 20, shirt youth small, boots size 13. Let me know if you have anything in those sizes and we would gladly pay you for them. :)

I found a few things. 2 pair of boots, one maybe size 13, the other 2's. An older/semi-stained pair of red Answer youth gear, size small shirt, 26 pants. Small knee pads. Can probably scrape up a pair of gloves or so if I can find the matching mate(s). I will pay it forward or accept a donation to the Dream House Foundation. PM me your addy and I will mail them tomorrow. You too can have a child who wants to sleep, eat, and wear all his gear to the grocery store! ::smirk:: Just post pics! ::up::

Amy, I think the youth track at HP is pretty tame. ::yippie:: That will be your new home for a while. My son Daniel and I will be at HP Wed, Thurs, Fri...would be nice to see ya. Our spring break, too. If I had some of Daniels older gear, I would give to you, but all that stuff was ripped, stained, ruined....he was rough on clothes.

Good luck with your purchase. Loved the pics...that is sssoooooo awsome. ::up::

MQM-

I have a 2009 Yamaha ttr50 sitting in the garage. It needs a battery, but otherwise is perfect. My 8 year old son, Ethan, has moved to a 110. We were going to sell this bike but I have a better idea.

If Lane is willing to do the following two things, I will give him the bike for free:

1. He learns to take care of the motorcycle. Everything from washing, changing the oil, to lubing the chain after each ride. Great way to reinforce responsibility and show riding is earned, not given.

2. Once he is ready to shred on a KTM, he agrees to give the bike to another deserving child to learn to ride on, with the same conditions agreed to by that child.

I don't know your financial ability to pay, but if you are adament about paying something, give a donation to the dreamhouse or charity of your choice instead.

We live in Rome, so it would be easy to meet you at HP and drop off the bike. Ethan enjoys riding there as much as he can. Just let me know if you are interested and we can set up the drop-off. BTW, if Lane is like Ethan, you better have a charged battery with you so he can ride. I also have some riding gear, pants/shirt/gloves from when we purchased the bike that may fit Lane.

Awsome display of teaching solid values and paying it forward right there! ::up:: ::up:: ::applause::

Great pics of Lane in the course, looks like he had a great time. I am going to sign my 7yr old daughter up for one of these courses in April or May, so thanks for the great report on the school.

WOW! True class act for sure! I can probably get a battery for it at a discount. Let me know MQM.

The battery MQM will need is a GS GT4B-5. The bike is a 2009 ttr 50.

I have tried repeatedly to get the stock to hold a charge, but the ignition was left on for too long. Thanks for help.

This is one of the best threads going on here right now. Sean and Amy take great care of their kids and teach values that many parents now seem to overlook. The dirt bike community is the best. Show them how it's done Lane.
