My feeling is that the best time to learn to ride a motorcycle is when you're a kid.
That way you'll be a better rider as an adult, whether you ride alot or not.
I've recently taken my 7 yr old out on our tandem recumbent trike with the 2 little sisters in the trailer.
I let him drive.
Yes, I let my 7 yr old Captain the family tandem rig with little sisters onboard.
He's quite capable of stering and braking appropriately. I pedaled from the backseat and used the 3 speeds controlled by the Stoker.
We stuck close to the neighborhood and didn't take really busy streets, as he's kind of new to "driving".
He took to it like a fish to water.
Which is good! If he's gonna be a safe driver when he's 16, I have to start now.
(so he doesn't do what I did)
