My daughters were never interested in what I do for fun whether it's biking, hiking, wheelin' or skiing. The moto is a recent obsession of mine and as expected, not much interest from the feminine side of my family. I look at it as less time spent doing maintenance on toys that aren't mine.

I talked my wife into going to a ADV Women's motorcycle 3 day ride near BV. First day was basics, 2nd day trail ride, 3rd Trials bikes. Maybe 20 female riders. There were a bunch of families, 3 other girls aged 6-10 that were riding 50s-80s non stop around camp. My daughter was in heaven riding with a group of girls like it was a parade of pink. You can get a pink plastic kit for a honda for about $40.

Default Pinked Up!

We transformed the CRF50 today.. Violet got all pink plastics & grips for her 5th birthday last month, finally had a warm and not so windy Sunday to knock this out. Still not sure she'll actually ride this summer, a little intimidated by the whole thing, but we'll at least have the option open. She definitely likes the pink though. I pushed her around the yard with the engine off and that was pretty fun.

That's awesome! I think that's the perfect age to start riding. The riding instinct will become second nature and she'll be on a big KTM before you know it!
