Thank you all so much for your input it has really helped. My DH has been around quads and dirt bikes all his lie so he is alot more cofident about the whole thing than me but i have decided I am going to have to say no on this one at least till she is a bit older. I will suggest we but an electric one to get her used to it first and then consider a petrol one when I am more compfortable with the idea. I think the issue is i have never ridden one so i don't understand there capabilities, DH wanted me to ride a dirt bike yesterday but I am pregnant so thougt it best to say no lol. Again thanks for the help I just hope DH undestands my reservations.
