Hey im new, I dont ride anything yet but I plan to soon. Im trying to see if my parents would let me get a dirtbike because I am planning on doing good in school this year. Well, you may be thinking that "Duh, your supposed to do good in school, all the time" Well not for me all the time.

OO, I feel so loved. Yeah, I talked to my dad about it today and he's like "you change from things you want, from day to day." How about no, lol I have wanted a dirtbike since my cousin first got one. Now I really want to race, and I haven't even driven one yet.

Welcome. You sure picked a slow week to join as a lot of us will be at DW03.

All I can say about getting your parents to take you serious about getting a bike is show some initiative and earn your parents trust. Make a deal and offerto pay for part of it if they pay for the rest. If you are will to work to get it and spend your hard earned money on it then they will see that you are serious about riding. Maybe even maybe even take a small engine repair class at school as an elective to help learn to work on it.

Good luck and I hope you learn a lot from this site. I know that I sure have.

Yeah, I have been reading a lot of stuff about Dirtweek, even though I dont have a bike it would still be fun just to go and watch and hang around. Learn some stuff too.

Yeah, I pretty much told my parents that if I payed half maybe they could help me. I also have yet to get a b-day present from them, and I will be recieving confirmation this year so I definantley will be able to pay for the bike alone with the money alone. Although I dont know if I would want to wait that long though. Although, If I have to wait for something I want it would be well worth it when the time finally comes..

I still dont know what bike that I should get, I have a basic idea in my head. Probably a 125 but I dont know what make I should get (ex.Yamaha, Honda)

Well thanks for your replies, do you have AIM?

how about working to prove to your dad you are willing and responsible for a bike? You may just get him into it if you do it right, that's what happened to me & my son.

You catch more flies with honey, son.

You most certainly need to get your grades up and keep em there if you want this to work. Once you get a bike you will still need help getting it somewhere to ride it, gate fees, gas, gear , repairs, etc, etc. Having good grades just makes you look responsible IMHO anyway. Bad grades will keep you out of college too, but hey, the world needs burger flippers too.

Do you want fries with that? ;)

Hopefully you're not mad at me Phatdirt, it wasn't my intention to flame ya :p
I'm speaking from experience about not doing well in school, I didn't and have to wash my hands every day, not that it's all bad, I like my job. It did take me a several years to get to a point where I didn't have my name on my shirt though!

Besides, when you do get a little older, it's easier to go out and get the toys you wanna play with if ya got a few bucks in your pocket.
