It's worth buying, I think. I had tears in my eyes from some of the heart tugging things on it. I want to see if I can get my wife to sit through it with me and understand the passion bikes can nurture within.
Some time ago I put up a thread asking how people got into bikes here - and most of the responses had the same reason. It was people's parents that taught them. One girl who was rebuilding her bike with her husband said it the clearest; her father always made sure she was having fun. when playing or tinkering with bikes.
Our daughter likes riding sitting on the tank of my KMX200 & holding onto the cross bar, whilst I hug her with my legs. In Bali our family transport was the same as the locals. One scooter for the 4 of us and she loved that (She was 3 at the time and our son less than a year old).... when in Rome do as....
My son already has more than a healthy interest in cars and bikes, although he cries and runs away when the SP2 starts!
Whenever I'm tinkering with something he wants to be there too, taking my allen keys and sockets and trying to fit them somewhere. Recently changed Carlos' front spindle bolt and couldn't find the old one.... he'd inserted it into my rearset & I only found it when looking at a picture I posted here after fitting the Dymags.
He has so much fun I can't bring myself to get annoyed when I find he's lost a few tools along the way...Or find myself at a loose end without a component I need to finish something. I always find a way...
He's 2 and clearly doesn't yet understand. What's important is that he enjoys playing with these things now I think & building an interest.
Over the last month we took down a lot of useless forest trees and I find myself day-dreaming of building a track around our home for him to ride on when he's older. It'll happen in a few years. I just know he's gonna love tearing around the place. Will be a good way for him to socialise with his buddies as he grows up too. Hoping my daughter takes a similar interest, but she's clearly much less interested..... for now.
For sure; introduce them young. I love the idea of my kids taking me for rides & drives when I'm older and unable to do it myself. The movie was inspiring indeed. Everybody should watch it.
