Newbie here, My son borrowed a friends 20yr.old Suzuki 50 this past summer. After a month or so he was itching for more, and I found a good deal on an 05 Cobra jr. Initially it scared him a bit with the power etc., but he quickly overcame that and absolutely loves to ride it. we have 10 acres he rides on , mostly flat and hard packed. He does very well riding around at home (can barely get him off of it) but..... he wants to ride on some tracks. I ve taken him to 2 Pee-Wee tracks and as long as the ground is fairly solid he does fine, but both tracks had a fair amount of sand in the corners and he gets his front wheel in the sand and down he goes. He gets very discouraged and gun shy then. My son is 6 yr. old, but very small for his age... 38 lbs & real short. He can touch with his tip toes on the Cobra jr. I wonder if I should backtrack a bit to a PW50 where he can get both feet on the ground and be able to control it more ( acceleration etc.) and gain much needed experience, or should I have him practicing sandy tight turns on the Cobra untill he gets it. I feel like a lot of the problem is his lack of size and weight. The other problem is my lack of experience riding, as well as being able to give him proper instruction. Any thoughts on sandy turn cornering, size and weight in relation to control, and backing up to a PW50? Sorry so long winded, Thanks!
