Ideas for a Motocross Birthday Party?

Good Questions

Q: My son has asked for a "motocross"-themed birthday party when he turns five next month. I found a photo of the cake I am going to attempt to build, but am looking for some additional inspiration. I'm not finding any other outstanding ideas in my online searches. I would be interested to know if any Ohdeedoh readers have done anything similar in the past and have any tips to share. I want to throw him a party he will love without filling it with plastic black and white flags or motocross plates you find in party stores. All suggestions are welcome!

Editor: Nicole, if you really love your son you clearly need to turn your backyard into a motocross circuit and rent out motorcycles for him and his friends. ;) In addition to searching online for "motocross party" try also just "motorcycle party" and you may have better luck. For example, I found this less ambitious but pretty cool cake (not that you shouldn't give the other one a try!). Readers, do you have motocross fans at home - what party ideas can you think of for Nicole?
