My ten year old Son has fallen............

My ten year old Son has fallen into Daddy's footsteps. He loves the Busa and asks to ride every time I go out. I frequently take him and lately he has aggressively been after me to get him a dirt bike. I have been checking Craigslist and waiting to see what I could find. We also live in a residential area and have no real place to ride but the roads and sidewalks in the neighborhood. Yesterday I was checking online and found a Murray Track 2 Mini Racer for $250 bucks and only ten minutes away. I called to see if he still had it since it was listed on the 8th of this month so was likely to be gone. I called and left a message and several hours later, he called me and left a message that he could meet up today. I never told my Son about it at all.

This morning, we got up early and took a 40 Min ride on the Busa. When I returned I noticed I had a message on my cell. I checked it and it was the dude with the Mini Bike. We spoke and I grabbed my Son and we jumped in the car to go "check out a new helmet for me", that's what I told him we were doing. We arrived and the guy was cool and the bike looked better than I expected. He fired it up on first pull and I drove it around the block. Meanwhile, my Son certainly was wondering what in the world was going on. I returned from my spin and asked the guy if he would barter on the price and he agreed. I offered him $200.00 and he took it. We loaded it up and took her home.

My Son was so happy and excited on the way home it took me back many years to when my Grandfather bought me me first Mini Bike. What elation and excitement at that age! Well, we got home and I put a new plug in her, changed the air filter, checked her over and he and I had one of the best days of my life! Spending time teaching him to ride his first motor bike was so rewarding and just made me feel fantastic. It was 100 degrees here in FL today but he was geared up and rode all day while giving me a sporadic spin to cool down! He is a natural! He is turning with excellent ability and keeping his head turned where he wants to go. He is doing figure eights already on a narrow road with room to spare and never touching down with his foot. He made me so proud and this was one of the best Father Son bonding experiences we have ever imagined.

My Fathers Day is now complete a week ahead of time and I can't imagine the thrill of things to come as he progresses. What an awesome experience and what a perfect day! I couldn't have imagined it would be so good. I feel I got a great deal on this little scoot and it's pretty darn fun to run around on, even for me. I just had to share this experience as it was just too cool to keep to myself! I hope you guys have as much fun on Fathers Day as I was blessed with today.....:bowdown: :cheerleader:
