It is all about body position

I posted this in the chicken strips thread (as a joke of course), but I deleted not wanting to mess up a serious thread. So, I started another one. Just trying to add some humor here.


My 21 month old son has an electric train that rides on a plastic circular track. He rides around on it. For some reason, he keeps leaning to the outside. When he does this, the plastic wheels don't get any traction at all. But he keeps the button down and the motor running going nowhere. I have to keep reminding him to lean to the inside. As soon as he listens and slides over to the inside, bam, all the traction he needs and off he goes. He is finally starting to get it I think.

Here's a video to demonstrate. I don't know how to embedd this and get it to work, so just click on the image below.



We are also working on his CR skills. Here he is riding the train while looking backwards.


If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I'm the waterboy in the vid, not the rider.

You'd have to ask him, but he has not raced in a couple of years now.

Man he was even hanging off a bit towards the end. Could almost see a nice triangle form with the inside leg if he'd keep it on the peg.

You wanna see my itinerary?
