Help to the little ones, to make the transition to motorcycle easier.
When kids move from pushbike to their first motorcycle, they often lack a bit of strength. This is especial the true, in the case of kids below 3 years.
It might therefore be hard for the little ones, having to keep the throttle puled all the way.
This may stop the fun prematurely, when the arm and hand become fatigued.
Remember that if the child’s focus is on holding the throttle, there is less energy to focus on balance and controlling the bike!
Therefore, it may be an idea to give the child a little assistance.
One option may be to fit a Throttle assist. It is mounted on the throttle, and help the child keeping the throttle down, without using the same force. The result is that the child can remain concentrated for a longer time, which in turn means more time for fun.
However, be aware that a Gas assistant has a drawback. It makes it a little harder for the child to “let go” of the Throttle, and therefore means that it is harder to stop the motorcycle.
Therefore, it is important that you get the Throttle assist adjusted correctly. Remember to pay attention to how Throttle assist is adjusted during training, since it tends to move – especially after a crash.
A Throttle assist is a “transition” solution, and it is important that the child slowly gets used to riding without it.
