He'll need you to yank on that chord then, everytime that he encounters a bend!

IMO, (with no disrespect to any parents on the forum) more parents should be fitted with one. And their wains. Just IMHO, as stated.

The LT 50's are cracking little bikes. There not to easy to find or get a decent one. But if you can find one they are well worth the extra money. My nephew has one and he loves it.

Anybody have any experience with these?

Chinese I know but UK dealer, spares and a 1 year warranty. Bit bigger than the kazuma, so might last our lad a little longer. I can't find any reviews though.

Would love a suzi or similar but just can't justify the expense and risk of second hand.

Hi Phil our Dan had an lt50 for years & rode it to death but it never let him down even though he was far too big for it before he switched to a motorbike
His was second hand when we bought it & over several years we lost very little on it when we sold it
I'd wager if you bought a used suzuki you'd lose less money than a Chinese copy as you will still get good money for it when you sell it.
Your more likely to almost give away a Chinese one when your finished with it.
We did exactly the same with his first bike paid more than the cost of a new Chinese bike for a used yamaha but sold it 2 years later & only lost 50 quid
Suzuki lt50s are a bit like a 4m searider with a 50 yamaha.!

After much research, I've just blown the budget out of the water and ordered a new Polaris 50 Outlaw. It should do number one for 3-4 years and then number two will be about big enough to take over. Will have to put off the new hull for a while though.
