My 9 yr old son, some of my friends and me, where at my friends MX track. Very nice, fun, and difficult track with alot of jumps. My son was doing laps on my 450r, so I hopped on my friends Suzuki 250r, which is almost as fast as the 450r, but dont quite handle as well, and decided to follow him to see how he did. I found that I couldnt even stay up with him. I couldnt believe it. I still dont beileve the way that kid can ride that thing...I learned a couple of things following him.

What do you do when your 100 pound 9 year old has exceeded the limits of his built up 200 blaster, and needs something way faster and better. But everyone looks at you like your stupid if hes on anything bigger then a 100. My kid started on a 100cc 2 stroke, and that lasted like 5 min...I want to buy him a bigger faster 4 wheeler then his blaster, but he is too young. what do I do?

Wow, thats cool that your son can do so well on the 450.

I didn't learn on a mini or anything small either when I was little, I had a Polaris Cyclone.

B) That's cool.
How big is he?

If his skills are outgrowing the mechanic abilities of the blaster move up to something bigger. You don't want to hold him back to much he might be the next Doug Gust. Now that I'm getting a little older and bigger I get scared when I see a big jump because I'm worried about getting hurt and not being able to work. If I was doing this stuff when I was younger I wouldn't have been scared and would be a much better rider now. IMO
I totally agree with this guy. :D
When I see a big jump it takes me a little while to gain courage, I always think of what happens if I get hurt, I can't work and pay bills. Or.. What happens if I wreck my quad? I don't have lots of money to buy parts.
