She needs a little work on her counter steer.



Joking! She is doing great. Most kids her age wouldn't even know how to steer period.

As time goes on just raise the training wheels just a little. That way you can see if she is truly balancing the bike. When the training wheel stop touching all together then take them off. I am looking forward to status reports for years to come.

@jkustomz28 can you please post a pic of that throttle govener (sp?). I have an electric trike, but it does 25 kmh and I can't put my 4 year old on it. I was looking at rigging something up and that looks like what I envisioned. A gear clamp with a long bolt that would hit the brake limiting the speed.
Isn't it great when the kids enjoy what we enjoy??

@Joe_Bass i used a speaker clamp from the speakers i fitted to my wife's ninja. as a cramp buster/ throttle assist type thing to help her give it gas. she was having a hard time holding and twisting the throttle but in her defense she's only 2.5 and doesn't understand everything i try telling her lol. but that helped a ton maybe to much because she got moving and about lost it. so i went in my nut and bolt bin and found a long u-bolt and a exhaust clamp bottom. bolted that one the throttle and set it so that it hits the brake lever . the only issue is you can't tighten them down vary much because if you do it pinches the throttle and doesn't allow it to return
