Hi Double D

My son is nine, smallest in his class and his weight is around 23Kg's. The dealership that I deal with has staff that all do some form of dirt riding, whether its ATV's or MX and I have drawn on their resources to train my son and make sure his safe. I took the raptor for a spin on sunday and managed to roll it over. It happened so quickly that one moment I was on it and the next it was nearly on top of me. I managed to stop it from rolling over me by stepping against the nerf bars as she was about to roll over me. The suspension is at it's softest so with my weight on it she seems to tend to lift the back wheels a bit in a corner as the front suspension goes down and she does not spin the wheels through. Maybe I should stiffen the suspension up a bit... what do you think
