Check your state laws. Some require the child to be 16 and have a license before operating a dirt bike. Personally, I wouldn't let my child drive on anything less than 4 wheels. I have seen 2 gruesome accidents involving underage people without experience driving a 3-wheeler and a dirt bike. I have watched my nephew on one and to be honest nothing is truly safe for that age group, but dirt bikes have a lot of tread on the tires and are made for ware and tare. As long as they watch where they are going than everything should be fine. Make sure they wear a helmet, of course you probubly know that, but in some states it is the law. And start with less power and gradually get bigger and better, they can adjust slowly without feeling they are invinceble. you might want to get the special pants and long sleeve shirt, they will protect in the event they were to fall. Look for them in the dirt bike magazines or even at a sporting store.
It depends on the size of the engine. 50cc sounds good.
Yes, completely safe. If your 8 year-old can ride a bicycle, he/she can ride a dirtbike.
It depends- smaller, low-power bikes can be purchased for younger children. With the right supervision, instruction, and safety and protection gear, dirt bikes can be a fun activity for children and adults of almost any age.
it started in the year 1959 in united states..
Ricky Carmichael started racing dirt bikes when he was five years old. Since he was born in November of 1979 it would be safe to say that his racing of dirt bikes started in 1984 - 1985.
Totally! Not a lot of people get hurt on the ones 11 year olds use. They are a good hobby for a 10-20 year old. although people say they aren't safe i myself had one and had not gotten a single injury.
dirt bikes are not a "street legal vehicle", and it is legal for a 13 yr old to ride it off-road
For a 13 year old it depends on your size and your experience with dirt bikes, but an 85 is usually the best size bike and fastest for a 13 year old. Unless you are really tall which you would need a 125.
Depends on the 11-year old. It does not deend on the eleven year old. it would be to dangerous for them
Dirt bikes are very safe for 12 year olds.Most the dirt bike riders start off at the ages of 3 or 4.My children ride dirt bikes all the time they started at the ages of 7 and 9.My children are now 11 and 13 and they are never sitting around in the house playing game consoles. Dirt biking is a great way to get active.So if you ask me if dirt biking is safe for 12 year olds.Yes definitely.My children have never had any injurys.And its great for kids to stop sitting in front of the tv.Even if you dont live in the country side you can still get a dirt bike and bring it to the beach or somewhere.
