My biggest regret in life is that I didn’t start riding motorcycles until I was 20, and didn’t start seriously until I was 25 or so.

How easy is it do offroad a Suzuki Carry kei pickup truck with mattracks? It’s so easy that a seven-year-old can do it.
The early years of parenting can decide whether a child is hooked on cars for the rest of their life, or something more boring, like golf. That’s a lot of power to hold, so use it wisely. These ten toys should have your kid begging for a license.
If you’re a parent whose kid likes toy cars, you’ve probably got toy car clutter. A cheap, DIY solution to ditch that clutter: A shoe rack.
Like many gearhead fathers, I dread the coming day when the wall goes up. And it’s not just the teen years either - cars and coffee has a tough time competing with Minecraft. Happily there is a solution. A Defender, in fact.
I’m just old enough that me and my brother and sister had one solitary Game Boy for our family’s long road trips through the endless expanses of California’s ag land fields. Without it, I think we would have murdered each other.
Because it involves the possibility of a child dying, this deceptively simple concept is really difficult to discuss rationally. The act of leaving a kid to sit in a car while a parent does some sort of errand has been around since there’s been cars, parents, and kids. There’s been some real tragedies, but is it always
There’s a little boy named Jack. Jack seems like the usual kooky happy four year old, but there’s one big issue — Jack has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. Jack’s had a great deal of physical difficulties and can’t walk, at least not yet. There is a surgery that could help, and to get that surgery, three guys are…
Having a kid grants a parent powers that would have seemed unimaginable before. Specifically, you have constant access to an extremely gullible tiny person you can convince of almost anything. Should you? That's for each parent to decide, but the results can be fun. And maybe just a little cruel.
Please help me this is too wonderful.
Let's be honest: "if you never go to sleep, Santa will never come" was about as convincing as "broccoli tastes good" or "you can't take a bunny to school" when you were a kid. One dad on the F1Technical.net forums has figured out the trick, though: make the bed look like a Mercedes W05 Formula One car.
UPS has declared open defiance of child-labor laws; allowing four-year-old Carson Kight to deliver packages in a pint-size brown box truck. The kid was elated, and you can't watch his "Day As A Delivery Driver" without cracking a smile.
I've never seen so many Lamborghinis on the street together, and I don't think I've ever heard so many cylinders wailing away at the same time, either.
Less than a day after he appeared in court for stealing a school bus, a Parker, Fla. 12-year-old allegedly stole a different bus and took it for a two-hour joyride.
One child was rushed to a hospital in Texas by helicopter after a drunk mom drove a grand total of six kids home from the pool on the roof of her car.
Yep, we totally understand you kid. Sometimes when the sun is beating down too hard and the day of fun has gone on a little too long and you're oddly comfortable in an uncomfortable position, you just fade away without a care in the world. It is a hammock's rest. It is ice melting in an umbrella drink. It is this kid…
