That's impressive about Ryan, mate. You claiming it all being down to him having such a good coach :-)
Looks like I'll be down your way on the Oct long weekend, next year. I've got a 40th to go to in Sth Nowra.
Maybe you can rustle up a couple of bikes and Ryan can lead us around some of his favorite Wandie / Yarwall trails?

thanks all for the input

took the young bloke bike shopping,
as expected KLX110 was too tall as was the TTR110,
Honda sales guys were pretty average plus the CRF50 is kick only

went to the yamaha dealership, PW50 was a bit too cramped for him,

got him on a TTR50-e and he can get tip toes of both feet on the ground at the same time and he can haul it upright from a good lean, my young fella said he liked it the best, combined with the run out sales on the 2014 TTR50 down from $2200 to $1690, that's what "santa" will be signing up for this weekend

The little 4 strokes are top heavy and the noise travels much further. I hate the way that when kids fall over on them they just lay there pinned to the ground, sometimes squealing away. Just like an adult dropping a Harley on himself.

If your kid will stay on 4 strokes for ages, then get the KLX110. Simply cheaper. Most pitbikes use KLX plastic and seats which means you can change the colour of your KLX for under $100.

If you want your son to eventually learn how to ride on a bike that is agile and occasionally loose, like an 85cc MX bike, then it's the PW80 all the way. Whisper quiet, light and handles great. Spare parts are insanely cheap too. Aftermarket everything on ebay and elsewhere.

Great news.

I can touch the ground tip toed on a 14 350EXC and pick it up from a drop, will you be my dad?

Pretty stupid on the Honda shops part, a bloke comes in with his son, sizing up mini bikes two months before Xmas.

Make sure you post some Xmas morning pics.
