    ...he had to wait to 14yrs for his first ride? Poor lad LOL

    My daughter and son went to rallies around the country from age 11. Totally agree with your fitment requirements, they must be able to reach pillion pegs. I see all too many kids wearing helmets and kit far too big. They just have to grow to get right helmet size, and Baby Biker was a good source of 2-pce leathers.
    p.s. they never forget those early trips
    regards, Bob

    Kids growing that fast, he's wearing my alpine stars boots nearly same height as me and chances are the leathers won't fit next year

    Got it new last year from Russ so he looks after it (although I wish he would sort out the warranty claim on the screen!). I go to the cafe most Sundays, but usually with wife and young boy and younger girl and in the car. Yes, give me a shout and I will see if I am out.

    Great to see you!

    Yep annual kit changes LOL Up to that age, Baby Biker www.babybiker.co.uk was superb in that they offered part exchange on their kit, which offset the costs.
    As they out-grew those, scouring the ads was then the order of the day. Hand me downs just didn't work - "I'm not wearing her stuff"

    Daughter passed her direct access 3yrs ago, and son is taking his now. Both have their own bikes (but that's another story LOL).
    regards, Bob
