    Yeah the 16" is perfect for my 6 year old.

    And this is great for when you don't have time to load up and go riding they can practice at home, the park, etc. The throttle is progressive like a real motorcycle and has 3 ride modes. If your kid is a little nervous about going to a 50 this is a lot more friendly and much lighter. They are pretty damn tough too, my oldest has wadded just a few times haha!

    Or you could save yourself the drives to some remote area and learn/practice at home until the kid is ready for a dirtbike. Grown-ups sell their little bikes when they are ready to move to something faster. Why not apply it here, if it's a possibility? It just gives you more options as a parent, that's all.

    Just don't live where you have an HOA and hood full of uptight a-holes. Ride your ~real~ mini cycle in the back yard, like I did. Problem solved, with a much less expensive, and more simple approach.

    Or just leave the 50 stock, my kids Honduh is quiet as a mouse fart. Neighbors love the kid so no complaints.

    We went through hell over Kris riding in the yard when he first started with him riding a JR50. Cops were called every time he started it. The neighbors that bitched eventually moved after they figured out it would never stop on their demand.
    I started mowing the yard at 6:30 on Sunday mornings, taking the RD for a ride in the middle of the night and shit like that just to piss them off. Had to deal with quite a few angry cops over it. I don’t take being forced into stuff well so I wasn’t about to let newbies in the neighborhood control what happened on my property. Especially when everything was relatively quite.

    Don't see a need for this over a PW50 other than the whole "it's electric so it's cool" factor.

    Not kid "needs" a PW50 either. Plenty of us didn't get one and still lived. :D

    I didn't ride a motorized two wheeled vehicle until I was 15, none of the kid stuff would have helped my transition :D

    One weighs 80 pounds, one is (claimed) 20 pounds.

    I have a TTR50 my girls won't ride because it's too heavy for them - this seems like the perfect gateway machine.

    A 20oz coke bottle, a couple of ounces of Muratic acid and a strip
    Of aluminum stuck to the lid before you put it on then tossed over the fence about 2:30 always makes a entertaining pop...

    I have a PW50 that the girls haven't touched for the two years I've had it (it's a heavy little POS for being as small as it is).

    They've taken to this electric Stryder bike like ducks to water............oldest had never ridden anything with a throttle before and was on "green" (which moves at a decent speed) within twenty minutes. If this thing delivers like it did today and gets my girls addicted to bikes, it's worth a 10x of its price.

    Big fan so far.
