Oh he was flying man, I was in 3rd on the 400 and about 3/4 throttle and he was right on my ***. Almost wide open on the 50.

Motoman...sorry to hear about your son's crash. I know how you feel. I was watching my son Kyle ride today and he crashed twice. Funny thing is.... these boys are tuff as nails! If only we were that tuff.

Tell him we are all proud of him being a "tuff guy!".

Cowboy, the bike is fine man.

Tore the throttle side grip a bit, but other then that it's fine, we are going to pick up a new set of grips when we get his gear.

Been there and done that! Sorry to hear this, Jim. I too have been a wreck a few times. I had a tendency to let Jordan progress a bit quick as I enjoyed watching her and of course had aspirations of her really getting into it and being the female equivalent of McGrath.
The thing that I noticed is that the motor skills of these little ones (Jordan included) allows them to fly, but their reaction time and tendency to fixate on an object led me to keep the throttle restricted on Jordans PW-50 as under normal circumstances she would do fine, until thrust into the unknown--then she simply did not know how to cope and I could not come to the rescue.
After a couple of pretty nasty crashes, I decided that the throttle would be allowed again as her overall skills were capable of it.

Glad to hear that your son came out in one piece. It is tough to see them hurting, I know. He will be back on it--and respect it now.

I know what you mean about the motor skills Tyler.

He will be flying and sometimes he will try and correct, but then he overcorrects and almost goes down. But he saves it everytime...so far.

He has respect for it, I have to really talk him along when it comes to new stuff, he just needs to pay more attention. I am just sorry he had to learn that way. But I guess we all did at some point.

Th treminds me of when I was flagging at the GMBII last Sunday. There was this kid on a PW50 that endoed about 5 times in the deep sand. I felt bad for him but the two times I picked him up, he was grinning. I patted him on the head and said "Go gettem' buddy!"

Well he got up this morning and it had tightened up a bit as expected. He wanted to go to pre-school so that is where he is now.

He goes in for x-rays around 2:30 today.

Say a prayer for him guys.

Jim I hope your son(isn't his name Jace?)the best and hope the X-RAYS turn out good and show no sign of anything bad..hopefully its just swollen and will start to go down before long. Those fence posts are pretty mean though..my bro hit one on my neighbors lawn mower one time a few years ago and man did it tear the front end of the lawn mower up:.

KDXChar I hope your daughter will get over her crash and want to ride again soon.

BTW Jim KDXCHAR is a girl , NICKNAME:CHARMANDER

Me and Mikey(Honda_Rider_XR)have known her for a good long time now and shes a fine Lady...WTATM(Welcome to All Things Moto)CHARMANDER

Motoman...I echo what everyone has said. I am sorry that it happened, but glad that he is okay and wants to ride again. You did the right thing in the situation, it certainly isn't your fault.

He is in our prayers for his x-rays...hopefully they come back negative.

Matt, yes his name is Jace.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, I am just hoping that he didn't crack his knee cap, as I understand that can effect you for the rest of your life. I am having a hard time focusing on work today waiting for 2:30 to come along.

Man, I wish it was me instead of him.
