I begged, and begged, and pleaded, then begged some more, for my parents to get me  a dirtbike when I was growing up, and never got one.  I had to wait until I was 27 years old till I could afford one.  I know why they never got me one, it was because they were dangerous and neither of my parents knew anything about riding so I can understand why they never got me one. 
I was lucky that I had a friend that had invited me to his house, after school, so I could learn how to use the clutch on his 1978 KE100-it was a total heap but ran and I was able to learn how to use the clutch and shift, thank you Evan Darling-I know you are still out there.  Had he not taught me, I wonder if I'd be riding today.  
My wife and I have sort of spoiled our two kids in that they both got bikes and had never asked for them.  

Almost the same deal here. Begged for one and got a 1970s Rupp Roadster. Looking back - neat bike. I was thankful but it was no ‘dirtbike’ and it was heavy. Terrible for learning as a young/small rider. Never anything after that except the Chinese dirtbike that was bought for my younger sister (which I rode more often). I lost interest in that bike but I kept dreaming of getting a real dirtbike. I can now afford my own as well as my son’s and now we ride almost every weekend. Really enjoying getting into the sport and getting my son into it.

Ya, had he been born a few decades earlier, he'd be on a 2t. :lol:
