Cam does really well. I am most impressed that at 10 years old, he's a "thinker" when he rides. He doesn't EVER ride out of control/too fast - and picks great lines out on the trails. He hasn't had the 70 all that long...no more than 18 months, I don't think, but does great with it and is ready for the next step. We're excited to move him to something with a "real clutch". It just needs to wait a bit til finances get squared away. Already have a buyer for the 70.
Last weekend we went riding, with our 3 other friends, in an area where we first started riding and we were all with the same thoughts when we stopped for a break - how much we've all progressed in our riding. The one thing is the bikes we now have are more capable of sand, too, so that helps. There was a sandy area that we would purposely avoid but when we hit it last weekend, we were all giggling like little school girls afterwards.
