Introduction Hello

Hey all, My name is Dave & I was directed to this site when I posted an ad on Craigslist looking for riding buddies for my 9 y.o. daughter. She has been riding for about 2 years and currently has a modified Yamaha PW80 that she loves. She has a local girl friend her own age (3 days apart birthdays) who rides but just isn't into it as much as my kiddo. We would like to meet some other folks with kids that ride. My daughter isn't particular about age or gender, she rode with two nice boys 11 & 12 at GSL Ranch a few weeks ago. She had no problem keeping up with their 100 & 125 bikes.

I ride an old Yamaha Serow (XT) 225 & it works fine for me... I basically got it so I could ride with the kiddo.

Anyway, we live in San Marcos & have a place to ride... just need more ring buddies. Looking forward to hopefully meeting some of you.

Re: Introduction Hello

Welcome to the site. It's been a while since my daughter was that young, but remember what it was like having her out riding. Hope you find someone here.

Have you checked with AMSA, the Austin dirt club? Here is their forum on the texas offroad network. They do Family days and that is a good way to meet other families with kids that ride.

Re: Introduction Hello

Welcome to the crew. To find other riding buddies just go to one of the TWT pie runs or other local and area meet and greats. There you will find like minded folks who love to ride. We do have a few members in that neck of the woods. KP

Re: Introduction Hello

Dang. I wish we were closer. My oldest daughter is 12 and has no one to ride with, as such, she is kind of losing interest. She has a 10 year old brother, but she can't keep up with him because he only knows one speed...

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Introduction Hello

I have a 13yr old daughter and she rides, but just love it. I also have a 15yr old son that is hot and cold.

There have been several guys looking for kid bikes lately. You might post down in the Young Guns section.

You could also post in impending dust storms

There have been several kids days hosted in the past.

Howdy neighbor. Nice that your daughter shares the riding passion. I am sure you will find some other young people to join in the festivities. Good luck.

Re: Introduction Hello

Zars Ranch down in Floresville has an area for kids, as well as enough easy single track the younger riders can handle.

I see some young guys and girls riding down there most weekends I go ride with some friends down there.
