I purchased bikes for my son (8 yrs old) and I for Xmas. He thinks the bike is pretty cool, but doesn't really seem interested in riding it. When I was his age I would have killed for someone to have bought me a dirt bike or anything similar. I had to wait until 36 to get mine. He was almost glad when I broke my arm 2 monthes ago it seemed, cause then we would not be going to ride. I don't want to push him too hard... any ideas on how to make it more appealing to him. I am going to try an actual camping w/bikes trip soon. He says he wants to go camping. I am really at a loss that he did not like it more.
