    Ball joint spacers and lift blocks, am I doing it right?
    I still remember the day my Dad brought home my first dirt bike. It was a white Yamaha trail 80, it might as well been Carmichael's championship 450. Anyone I know that rides still remembers that day, even though I gave up street bikes over 10 years ago the love of motorcycle's is still in me and will always be.

    This weekend after diligently watching Craigslist for a few months I finally found the deal I was looking for, a mint 07 CRF50, all stock and at the right price.

    I feel very privileged to start the love of all things two wheeled with my boys!

    Hold on to your Pringles! CJ rides...

    Maybe I'll pick up something too, can't let the kids have all the fun!

    Awesome, looks like he's a happy guy! I still remember my first bike. I was older when I got my first bike so it was an old Yamaha PW80 :)

    My grandaughter has had a PW50 since she was around 1 1/2. A couple of weeks ago, she just turned 3.

    With a stock exhaust, she is fearful on account of the noise. Time will tell if she rides it, if not some lucky father / kid will have a nice PW50 with the moped rear gears, premix conversion, and small hand light pull brakes and throttle.

    Riding and racing dirtbikes has been a great part of my life. Sometimes not understood by those that never got the chance or utilized the chance if offered.

    Enjoy every minute...
