I see her flying up and down the street with no helmet on ever. I am not about the riding a dirtbike on neighborhood streets i know its illegal but i was guilty of it at that age as well, it's the no helmet deal thats getting me. And the speeding.

If you ride with out a helmet and you are a grown adult thats your perogative. But letting your kids ride without them is stupid.

I would tell you this myself but you and your daughter are always flying buy,

I am the guy thats always working on the yellow gixxer in his driveway,

If you need an mx hlmet and don't have one i have an old one she can have.

End rant
my .02

Thats just stupid of the dad... pissy poor stupid judgement..
I got my boys all the gear before i even let them sit on their bikes....
Call the cops like Ed had mentioned before.. It could prevent a tragedy

It is a touchy subject, but I would clear my mind by at least attempting to talk w the father or mother about the situation. Afterwards, you did your part and your conscience can rest a bit. Unfortunately most people appreciate conflict over a peaceful, concerned conversation.

This is a tough call... I didn't mention what I would do in your case, just what I practice with my own children...

Most of my friends would say, though, that I'm a huge fan of natural selection- although it's not the child's fault the parents are idiots. BUT how old is this girl? If she's old enough to run the streets, you're not going to change her mind. And if something does happen to her, for 's sake- it's NOT your fault.

Parents are responsible for their children, if he does not have enough common sense to put a helmet on her head, then the cops or CPS need to tell him...

I live down the street from this guys clone and have confronted him about things....

Loose Pit Bull, teen aged boys starting fires and girl riding a mini croutch rocket up and down the street in flip flops, if 90 0.5 walks down to this guys house there will be HE!! to pay, I can't even walk by our clones house without getting hassled ...

if I call the cops now he'll know it was me and I'm a little worried about what he would do to my house or my dog when I'm gone....

If this is in a neighborhood w/ a code, then just contact the housing community generally and mention there is an underaged minor riding a dirtbike on the streets apparently unsupervised and w/o helmet...

I understand the helmet deal but involving the cops of the HOA is just outta line....I ride in the street and in the feild next to my house with my son and he always wears his helmet. He even askes for it before we start to ride but if someone called to cops about us riding it would be on
