Your mates uncle has some sweet country to ride in and your lad seems be loving it.
He's picked up the pace a fair bit.
Is the 200/250 you're after, for him?

He has done well this year, have taken him everywhere with me its actually the only riding ive done is with him so ive had a riding buddy that will go anywhere anytime lol .
Im going the 200 this and next year as he still has one more year on his 85 Big Wheel as he isn't the tallest kid and he is very comfortable with 85 and then the 200 is his after that but he is absolutely loving his riding and at only 14 on his way to becoming a competent rider as he gets older

It dawned on me recently that there might be some selfish motives behind encouraging our son to ride.
It sure is easier to organise a ride at short notice with your son than with mates who have their own families & commitments

Your boy is gonna be a weapon once he gets on the 200
I wish our lad hadn't outgrown the 85 so quick, but the extra range of the 200 has opened up our riding options a fair bit.

it might be a bit selfish but I was just put to work on the farm with my Dad so hes not doing to bad lol . Yes the fuel is a worry but guess who carries the extra fuel ???

You're right, we're probably spoiling them.
At 13, I was trying to get a late 70's hand-me-down XL250 going so that I could upgrade from a CT90
Dad would let me use his tools and his dodgy advice, but I had to do all the work myself.
I lost count of how many times that backfiring pig nearly snapped my right leg off when trying to get the ignition timed.
A generation on and mid-ride my son gripes because his 200 doesn't have a start button
