First bike!

Hey everyone,

My son’s sixteenth birthday is coming up in two months. I am considering giving him a new 312r. Is this an easy bike to learn on? As my son is a proficient BMX rider, I am expecting him to make an easy transition to motorcycling.

NO!
:stopp :

Please tell me this is a sick joke. Akin to saying you bought your todler a shotgun, but since he can handle a bottle, it's no big deal.

Seriously, this is a terribly BAD idea.

I say do it! Its just like flying a jet for the 1st time with not training. I'm sure that the 312 is very similiar to his bmx bike. Your a great dad.
