I personally enjoyed the video and can only imagine the ear to ear grin on the boy's face. Would I do it if I could control the wheelie like that? yes.

Yes, it's illegal. Children under 5 are no longer allowed on motorcycles unless it's in a sidecar (Effective Sept. 1, 2009).

Safe? Of course not.

Stupid? I'll let others decide. It's not my kid.

Is it stupid - yes

Would i do it when i have a 3 1/2 year old boy with gear on? - yes, but will be unknown to mommy...

Why would i do that? - Because if my boy(s) will be anything like me, they'd love it just as much as i loved sitting on the gas tank of my dad's motorcycle going for rides. I also ride wheelies on 50's as comfortably as i walk so i wouldn't wheelie faster than i would powerwalk with my kid on there.

People still go to thumpertalk? I thought that place died three or four years ago.. Cool video either way, probably not the smartest thing to do, but it's not like he's going 321743829104738921074 mph.

While it is technically illegal, I would like to think he has far better control of that bike during a wheelie than the average drunk has of their car while speeding down the road with unsecured children bouncing around in the back.

WTFE..i gave my kids rides on the ninja at 5,6,and 8yrs old but my boys werent ur average sized kids.. No wheelies though.. momma didnt play that.
On the subject of kids and bikes , I bought the two oldest boys pit bikes and let them get exposed to riding by themselves a few yrs ago. but they outgrew them and got into other sports.. My 12 yr old(oldest) is 215lbs and wears my clothes size now. and I am six ft two inches...boys gonna make some football coaches very happy ...lol

Joe, always with the logic.
I take my 1 year old for rides on the fiddy all the time, he demands it. Have I done slow wheelies dragging my feet with him, what do you think? Like Kyle said I could do a wheelie blindfolded on my fiddy, and I dont go out of 2nd with him on it. People can argue logic and intelligence, but those are personal opinions for the most part. More power to that dude, and his son, because his son is gonna smoke yours on the motorcross track, race track or anywhere else he wants to ride.

rite on!! wat kid wouldnt think you are the coolest dad if you did some stuff like this with them..when my kids had their own pitbikes-they were the ONLY ones at their school who could say that they have a motorcycle.. Its just the coolest thing for a kid...

But teach them the responsibility that goes with being a rider too...
