    my boy is 5 1/2, I should have had him riding sooner but todays the day he rode it all by himself after a few practice sessions with dear old dad. he has been riding his CRF fifty with training wheels since age 3. I just did'nt push the bicycle alot.

    I told him I was so proud of him and gave him a hi 5. he was smiling from ear to ear. we even called mom since she was at the store to tell her. my boy told her he will show her tomorrow on easter. so needless to say I am a very happy proud pop tonight, just thought I would share.

    That's great! Hey, thanks for being there as a DAD to your son. It makes me teary eyed to read stories like this. Being a parent is no easy job and you have shown me in those brief moments how much love you have for your son. Good job DAD. I wish you many, many more moments like those! Wait till he gets onto bigger bikes and even into trucks! :D

    Yep, it is a great feeling when your kids accomplish that huge step.

    My twins were about 5 or so when they learned to ride without training wheels. We walked/rode down the their school's parking lot and I took off the 'wheels. I told them that they were going to ride home without them. It took about 20 minutes for them to get the hang of it and we practiced there for about an hour.

    When we got home, they couldn't wait to show mom.:D Good times......good times.

    Congrats!!!:bow: :D

    I taught my eldest daughter at age 5...was pretty easy. My youngest didn't want my help, or mom's help either. At 5 she insisted I remove the training wheels...and she spent an entire weekend teaching herself. Pretty unorthodox for a 5 year old but was I ever proud of her determination. :bow:
    By the Sunday she was bombing around like it was nobody's business...

    my daughter did not want to take off the training wheels until she saw her cousins riding without their's, then she said Dad I don't want my training wheels anymore, and she never looked back.

    well today was a great day, both his grandma's came over for easter and my neighbor who's my bud, who my son really wanted to suprise by showing him how well he rides his bike with out training wheels now. he needed help getting started for just a few feet but then he was off.

    by mid day I did'nt have to help him take off from a stop and run with him, which is good cause it reminds me just how out of shape I am :doah:. WOW!, 40 is in just a few months:eek1: :doah:. he even started making u turns by him self. so now I need a new bike. have not had one for about 10 years. YIKES!! its been that long :eek1: .
