Unreal, Tom!!! How old - or rather, how YOUNG - is she??? Just unbelievable!! She looks so comfortable on the bike, AND with speed, AND at the edge of a mountain.... Can only imagine some of your thoughts and feelings, following her doing that. Just incredible....

She's 9 now. Just moved up from a PW50 to PW80. I took the lead going up towards Cherry Gap to feel out the "traffic", then filmed her for a bit coming back down. I was crapping my pants at that point not knowing if she'd remember the instructions upon seeing an oncoming car/quad. After a bit I had to take lead again and calm my nerves. Her big smile at the end was worth it.
Cheers-
Tom

Ditto on Mike's comments, for sure.
I was kinda crappin' my pants just watching the video, and then kinda laughed nervously at the part where you go "Morgan?", wondering if you were trying to get her to slow down, but trying not to be alarmed..... But she was just riding so calmly and controlled, and very clearly loving it.....
That is indeed a very precious video. It'll be fun to watch the day after she takes her first podium - in a coupla years!!! Congrats!!

That is great. Just awesome for the 2 of you. Things are straightening out some and if you still have that thing (wink wink nudge nudge) that we spoke of befor I'd like to take a look at it soon for my girl. What a great christmass gift for Josie that would be.

Hey Ray- I finally sold the 50 (for $6/cc):D. But you are always welcome to try your daughter out on the 80- just let me know. It's only slightly heavier and has a 3-spd/no clutch.
