I know they can't do it, but they should have some sort of age limit on taking any kid on a bike, but then again how do you distinguish between a rocket and say a goldwing. Some people just shouldn't have kids.

Uhhh....

My son rides with me quite a bit. From the time he was 6 actually. Full gear including a chest protector, elbow and knee pads. Now I'm not out doing canyon runs or on the freeway with him but in the summer we go for cruises and I take him to school and stuff on the bike. Granted he was the State Champion in Supermoto for the 7-12 year olds when he turned 7 so he has some pretty good skills and knowlege.

I would not use that device on a bike though. I can see it on an ATV if your up in the mountains taking it easy or something but on a bike I'm afraid you would crush the poor kid in an accident.

Is that a 12 bar on that CBR in their picture? Maybe the kids extra weight helps him pick up the front end.

Thanks, I kinda felt like WTF? there for a second....like I was doing something evil. I know there squids out there with kids and it really pisses me off to no end. I preach gear to my boy like it's the Bible. He doesnt ride down the sidewalk without everything he would wear on track.

LOL...bought him a YSR50 the other day. It's in 1000 pieces right now. Cost me $100 and I cant wait to see him on Millers cart track ripping it up.

Hey MM...I think we have a mutual friend. Stone from Utah. I race with him when he makes it out. Havent seen him much since he got married.

HOLESHOT! The kid pulls more lean angle than me some days.

I see it this way. If a child isn't big enough too hold on without that device, they have no business being on the back of a bike or an ATV. Looks like a good way to get a child killed in the event of an accident. Slow speed or not, even if YOU don't wreck, you could still get hit. Not for my children..huh uhh..

right on tony! I think there are some exceptions like the kid in here who can ride dirt and ride well...but if the kid can't hang on and hang on well and be mature and realize the risks then he shouldn't be on it...PERIOD
