    How about ATV driving?

    Hi there! I'm a newcomer here, just wanna ask you about your experience with kids gas ATV. Is it ok for 10 years old son? He got pedal kart a few years ago, then a scooter, now he wants more and faster so we are thinking of ATV. What brand would you recommend for beginners? All terrain thick tires and remote key would be a plus. Thanks!

    Well, I decided to update my post just FYI. So I've been looking for a gas ATV which both my wife and son would like and it was not so hard as we expected. After reading dozens of forums and posts like this one (a pretty good one detailed review) https://www.kidsatvsale.com/kids-gas-powered-atvs/ we decided to buy an Ice Bear (because of Spider Man design lol) with thick tires that looks like a real ATV. Now my wife is happy, my son is happy, that's the main point. The ATV is solid, it comes with remote kill switch so I can control the ATV from the distance (and my son won't know about it).Yeah I know there are lots of claims about injuries and even deaths but we're not gonna get wild with driving, just fun in a safe speed putting on a solid helmet as well!​​​​

    Get him a dirt bike. He will slide out on the low side, but he will never high side it. The high side roll is what kills kids

    Seriously John B. Iíve got nearly 2500 posts here, and you call me a spammer? Fuck you, Jong.

    If you want to hurt your kid, get him a quad. As soon as he flips it, that machine will roll over him and hurt him badly. Not that dirt bikes are safe, but they are better than quads. I have two quads for plowing and pulling stuff, and they are great for hunting and access, but bad things happen to newbie riders on them if they ride them 💨

    Riding bikes from 11, hate quads as the feeling I got was the quad was riding me instead of the other way around.

    Neighbor just died the other day. Left behind a young wife and two kids under 6 not to mention a huge ranch that the wife can't run alone.

    Yeah, I kind of wondered if I was out of line there.
