Is this a good starter bike for a 6 year old?

She is starting a little early, I can't keep her off of this thing.

looks like a great place to start. I wish when I was little, my parents would let me ride even a dirt bike.

She loves it, my boy is a few years younger, and can't balance yet.... he's made a few good attempts so far though. Still likes it thanks to the knee and elbow pads, gloves and helmet. Without the padding he'd probably never want to touch it again hahaha.

Once she gets good at riding it, if you've got a little bit of extra cash, find a kids racing organization to get her into competitive racing, that's how all the big boys got their start! Imagine seeing a female up on the podium for MotoGP 125cc class in about 10 years

I think I'd have to move south for that one, not much in the racing department here in alaska.
