I actually rode a Honda 50 before a pedal bike. I couldn't balance and pedal. My dad wanted me to race motocross as a kid, so I was "forced" into learning to ride before I could pedal.
I still remember falling at the track and pinning the throttle in the dirt. I would cry because it was stuck wide open! BRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAPPP! Someone would have to come pick the bike up for me.
