my 5 year old also started with a battery operated quad and progressed to this Dinli Dino 50 on his 4th birthday, he is now 5 and a few weeks. He races the Dino in a kiddies (4-7) leage and does fairly well. I am about to buy him a AEON COBRA REVO2 100cc to use for the outrides,as you can see he loves the mud, only problem the Dino has no suspention and is not waterproof!! After the weekend fun the bike is in the shop for water and mud in the tank/carb/electrics/airfilter/fuelfilter/ and absolutely everywhere else.
The kid wants a Grizzly 125, he can ride it on a flat track pretty well, but I don't think he can handle the weight, and control it on the trails at 5 years, so I will gowith the revo. He currently does most of the out rides on his dino with us (he can sure read a line well!!)
we don't have any local racways here, but i will do the same for him as you did. i will start him off young and if he is into it, i'll buy a camper and go were they do race. but for fun is just fine for me. a little qt with my boy is all i need. you know?
