What's up from an over the hill newbie

Whats up everyone my name's Richie. Im 39 and I decided to get in to what I really missed out on during my childhood. My daughter just learned how to ride without her training wheels so I decided to get her a newer bike (razor black label 18"). For now its good. Its got a gyro and foot pegs so I figured its enough for her right now until she decides to throw it around religiously and I'll spend the cash for a better bike. She's 9. I was initially opting for a cheap mtn bike just to ride around with her in but after not finding what I want I saw the Orange mongoose index 20" at target. For now it'll do as well. Do I plan on going balls out with it? Not likely, but I do plan on trying some of the simpler tricks like a manual so don't expect me at any skate parks anytime soon lol. Overall, I'm just happy to have and share with my kids what I didn't get when I was younger. I eventually plan on getting a Haro or maybe find and restore an old school gt or dyno. So until then, hope to chat with you guys soon.

Welcome to the forum. My son is 44 and I still enjoy riding with him, so cherish the opportunity you have.
