Pull up a couch. It's cool in the Lounge. Just remember to be a good neighbor.

We did 95 miles of gravel, and then hiked up to see the bison at Tallgrass Prairie Preserve when we returned to our hauler. I think a new backroads rider was found. ;) I let Lindsay lead, with a few suggestions. We ended up heading south toward Cassoday a bit east of Strong City.

How old is Linsey if you dont mind me asking? I would love to get my oldest daughter on a dirt bike. Is it legal to ride back roads if not of legal driving age yet?

You need to be licensed ride (or learner's permit) to run licensed motorcycles on back roads.

The "Lindsay" safiri refers to is an adult. Ajayhawkfan is correct, of course. My information is a decade old, but my cousins farm in a rural county where it's legal to operate ATVs on the county roads without a driver's license. You have to have a safety flag and maybe register the ATV---don't know. So there are some rural exceptions perhaps.

From time to time, I take my 13 year old daughter out to practice driving. It is illegal, yes. I take her far out of the city to low-traveled gravel. I have assessed the risk, and for me, I have chosen the risk of breaking the letter of the law over the risk of my daughter getting hurt because she is a bad driver. 8-)

We have a few folks here on the forum with land and the generosity to share their property with us at organized times. Watch the forum for "family rides", etc. You'll find a safe place to teach kids how to ride and a supportive community. We just had the one out at Luc's place last Saturday. Rumor is there will be one coming soon at birdman's farm.
