    I know these are not real bikes, but my friend was thinking of purchasing either a Mini-Bike or Pocket-Bike for her 12, 10, 8 and 7 year old kids.

    Is there really a difference between a Pocker or Mini bike?

    Anyone own one, can you post picutres please?

    Are they fairly safe for the kids?

    Thanks,

    I have a pocket bike and I love it.
    Pocket Bikes:
    Faster
    They look like superbikes
    Just a little bit Smaller

    Mini Bikes:
    Slower
    Look like Bodiless Dirtbikes


    I would say for the 12 year old, get a Pocket Bike, for the 10 year old, get a Mini bike. I personally think the 8 and 7 year olds are a little too young because they could get hurt.

    I am out of town, so I will post pictures next friday.

    Get them a real trail bike such as one of the TTR series from Yamaha. They're safe, reliable, easy to ride and cheap. I have a TTR110E and TTR125LE for for 12 and 14 year old daughters. They ride them on our 5 acres around the house, at MX tracks and in the woods with me on my KTM. They are great bikes, have both electric and kick start and even an adult can ride them for fun. In fact, I often ride the TTR110LE to get around the paddock and barn area at horse shows as well as a pit bike when I go to road Atlanta . You can buy them new for $1k-$2k. I bought my two off Craigslist for about 1/2 that.

    I agree with this. Get them all real dirt/trail bikes.
