Let's just say he is a typical boy. The kids received this dirt bike in January. Instead of just looking at it sitting in the garage over the long winter, they learned how to ride it on snow and ice. So by the time spring came, they were pretty good at handling it. It's just the right size for Russell. He likes the challenge of learning different manoeuvres. I'm sure there will come a time when the jeans are ripped and skin is scraped!
