No more "baby wheels"

I bought this here bicycle for Gage Andrew some years ago, but he's long outgrown it and riding his own 20-inch bike down Nashville way. Anyway, after only one 3-hour practice session at the shop with the training wheels still on, the training wheels came off, at the shop again, as requested by 6-year-old Zach himself. As he said it, he wanted to ride without the "baby wheels."

Caught in this video is just his fourth or fifth attempt at it. And as you can see, considering how new this was to him, he was doing quite well. Very well, in fact. Unfortunately, he didn't see it that way.

Anyway, turn up the volume and listen to him grunting these little whining noises as he goes. What a hoot. What a character.

There are those days when I enjoy being a Pop Pop more than I ever did being a pop.
