Any advice for the moto dads of the future?

You got to keep it fun. Let your rider go at his comfort level sure you have to push them a bit but don’t push them to something they are not comfortable with. Celebrate your accomplishments and recap on your faults. Take time away from the sport when you can so yourself, rider, and family do not get burnt out. Don’t forget about the siblings and if mama aunt happy aunt nobody happy so take the time to provide things she enjoys.
