Looking good, Matt. Enjoyed the pictures.

If it looks like he's really into it, maybe get him in a skills course from someone reputable. Now's the time, before any bad habits set in.

I was coming up from where I am standing in the photo. The "too much throttle" caused the back wheel to slide sideways and I was kind of under/down hill of the bike, with my feet on the seat to make sure it did not come down on me. It stopped and the other guys grabbed the bike.

The kids were bugging me about not getting out lately, so I took some time off and we hit the dirt for a few days. Being able to stay with relatives up the hill and using it as a basecamp has proven to be super convenient. Wake up, have nice breakfast, 25-30min later down the backside and we're offloading at the staging area, ride all day, home for showers, home cooked meal, hang with family...repeat.


28 Degrees in Big Bear last week:



But 65-70 and brilliant in the high desert:





The 14yr old is getting way too fast:



We literally had the entire valley to ourselves:



I'm now in the market for a plated 450. The 14yr old (very soon to be 15) spent most of each day riding my 525 and the 12yr old rode the other one's 125. I can't believe how fast they are moving up. I'm guessing by the end of summer the 10yr old will be on the 85:



Stopped for some cold drinks on the way back, she pulls guard duty:


These iPhone pics kind of suck, I need to stop being lazy and drag the SLR next time.
