Great OSET article from Motorcycle News UK……
Here is just the opening paragraphs, and the full article is attached below.
Having spent most of my adult life juggling work and family commitments in order to make more time to ride motorbikes, it was music to my ears to hear my two daughters, aged seven and 10, telling me how much they love their bikes and asking when they could go riding again. Six weeks ago the Guy family took delivery of two electric Oset trials bikes. These bikes are dominating the British championship D-class (for riders between six and nine), comfortably beating petrol bikes, and filling the top five places in the final championship.
A gimmick they are not. These are cutting-edge competition bikes, and the new weapon of choice for the next generation. But my motivation has nothing to do with competition–unless the kids want to take that step further along the line – I’m not suffering from competitive dad syndrome. This is just about teaching them to ride and let- ting them enjoy it. Six weeks in and they are nagging me to go riding – and improving every time.
