What size?

My son has taken an interest in dirtbiking. I more of the 4-wheeler my self but I used to mess around now and again.
Would you start an 8 yr. old on a 80 he weighs 68 lbs and 43 inches. I sat him on a 50 and it was to low to the ground, think it was a honda.they didn't have any 80's so I left. Just think an 80 would last a little longer. Kids grow fast. He has never ridden one but I think he'll pick it up fast!-thanks <font color=orange> an Interested Father looking to support his kids sport.

HEY THERE GRAMPS, glad to see your there for'em. as long as its a four stroke a 80 is perfect. honda xr's go 50-70-80-100. try yamaha also, they have a 90-125 ttr pretty good bikes also. excellent smooth power for beginners.
