If you give your child a motocross bike, they will want to ride. You’ll buy them the best bike you can find, followed by some kit, helmet and boots.

You look for local tracks to ride at weekends, where you start to socialise with the MX community…………And then life as you know it, will end.

Before you know it, they want to RACE so you find a CLUB…..There will be no more lazy weekends watching tv. You will see more sunrises than you ever thought possible.

Every spare minute of your time will be spent hauling campers, caravans and bikes and enduring a crazy addiction to practice for the race.

Your house may be a mess, and your car will be dirty. All because you gave your child a motocross bike. Your weekends will be spent freezing or burning to death on a fold up chair. And their weekends will be spent gaining confidence and friends, learning new skills and having fun and getting dirty!!!!

You will be there the day he or she makes there first hole shot , first podium, first win. And they will make you SO proud. Other parents will congratulate you, but you feel weird saying thank you because it's not you on the track, it’s your child. It's everything that they did, they achieved. And right before your eyes, your little boy/girl will be transformed from the baby who spun around on their Pee Wees into an expert.

When you give your child a motocross bike , you give them more than just something to ride. You give them a sport, a talent, hope and dreams. Friends, a new family, a place to learn about life, room to grow as a person where they can push their limits, and bravery, and courage, and memories. And they will have ALL of these things, simply because you gave your child a motocross bike.

Because you gave your child a bike, you too will develop new/lifelong friendships, developed solely from the same passion for the sport. You will have a Motocross family because you gave your child a motocross bike.

Then one day, many years from today…they will be in their room and a certain trophy will catch their eye. And they will pick it up and realise instantly that when you gave your child a bike, you also gave them a childhood that they would never forget, at this point, you realise that everything you gave up along the way and sacrificed was totally worth it…..

All because you gave your child a motocross bike🏆 🏁……. Logan Gardner #153
