He was riding in Sunday noon time traffic on West Road crossing Jones. Who knows where they had been or were going. He was coming from 290 and West area and headed towards West and the Beltway. I turned so I didn't get to see where they were going.

He did see me taking pictures of them so maybe at least that might be a wakeup call.

Yeah this guy is riding in Sunday lunchtime traffic on a couple of the busiest streets in the area......not very smart.

He could have at least had her in jeans and some decent shoes along with a real helmet and I probably wouldn't have thought twice about it. Some people just don't think what's going to happen to them when "the other guy" does something stupid. This guy is probably thinking "I've been riding forever, I know I'm not going to crash" but what's going to happen when the guy behind you or the one pulling out from starbucks sipping his $6 latte and talking on his cell doesn't see you and hits you and your 6 year old and takes you down at 40mph? You're pretty little girl isn't going to be so pretty any more.

trust me, if i had a kid, she will get to ride with dad on the big bike when she is old enough and big enough to hold on to me safly. at 5.. keep her on a 50 in the dirt, not a gsxr on houston highways.. sorry my little rant, others might think different but thats how i feel.

Man, I saw something just like that last friday night on HWY 6 and Bellaire! the girl on the back couldnt have been more than 8 yrs old and she was holding on with a bicycle helmet on. her feet were just dangelling off the sides, and when he took a turn, she just rocked ... i thought her foot was going to hit the rear wheel on the turn! just as i was pulling up next to him to tell him off, he changed lanes and turned off again!
sooooo stupid!!!

Hi Gryphin! This is Megan's mom. Thanks for being so concerned for her well-being! I do respect your opinion... but I have a few comments for you!

"trust me, if i had a kid" one of the first things I learned as a parent was that all those pre conceived ideas that I had before becoming a parent meant nothing... you have no idea what you will or will not do when you have kids!

"she is old enough and big enough to hold on to me safely." when is that? when you are trying to decide the answer, don't forget to take into account things like emergency acceleration, falling asleep, or leaning to check out something cool on the road, etc. (i am sure that 11 or 12 yr olds would never do any of those..right?).

"keep her on a 50 in the dirt" so she will be safe and not get hurt.

"not a gsxr" why not? Just because a bike has alot of power does not mean that you have to tap into that power all the time. She actually "fits better" on the back of the gsxr than a full grown woman.

Her dad is very experienced (just cuz we are new to MH, does not mean we are new to ridin' ) and he has more natural ability than anyone I know (altho I may be a little biased ). Does she ride with me? NO! I don't have near the experience her dad does. Would she ride with anyone else? Only her grandpa who has more experience in his pinky finger than probably most(notice I did not say ALL) of the people on MH.

Another thing cuz someone always inevitably asks: How would I feel if something happens to her on a bike? Any parent knows that there are no words to adequately describe that feeling when anything happens. but I will go with devastated. How would I feel if I crashed my car and she gets hurt? Um..the same. If she falls down the stairs? the same and etc. Do We live our lives afraid that something bad may happen? NO!! cuz life would suck! Do we choose to live each day to the fullest and have as much fun as safely as possible? YES! Do we try to teach this philosophy to our kids? YES!

Bottom line... Megan is ours, so we get to decide. When Megan rides with us we get 2 very different responses: 1. those that think it's the coolest thing ever! 2. and those who think it's nuts. (wonder what they would think if they knew about all the other fun stuff we do with our kids)!


Now I know why you kind of gave us the cold shoulder @ the benefit. No need tho, we respect your opinion. We just think differently than you.

wow glad to see the internet still gets parents butthurt.. i didnt call you out in anyway shape or form as far as experience goes.

i just said "if it was my kid", what you want to do with your own off-spring is your choice.

as far as cold shoulder at the benifit? i didnt know who you were, i didnt know who most of the people were, doesnt hurt to come up and say hi and who you are. i walked around snapping photos for a good hour and a half and only had 1 person come up to me and say who they were. daniels wife.

if you do things that are out of the norm. and its in public view , expect to her the quote "if it was my kid/child, i would" its as simple as that, other people are ALWAYS going to have their views of a topic and thats what makes us unique. and when you bring yourself onto a public forum you are going to hear and see other peoples opinion so please dont take it as a personal attack towards you or your family.

Informative article on Riding with Children: http://www.motorcyclecruiser.com/str...ids/index.html

Excerpt from above article (& this is just FYI):
The aftermarket has a number of solutions. The simplest is one of the several types of belts for the rider with handholds for the passenger, like the Buddy Belt ($50) from G&G or the Pillion Pal from Family Motorcycling.com. You may be able to offer a passenger similar security by attaching handhold loops to your regular pants or jacket belt. However, kids have trouble remembering to hold on all the time, so I rarely used this solution until they were 10 or older.

My preferred system for carrying a young kids is the Child's Riding Belt (formerly the CRV Belt) ($129) from Child's Riding Belt Company, and imported by several retailers for the U.S. market. The CRV is a harness that goes around the child's waist, over the shoulders and between the legs so she can't wriggle or pull out. The quick-release buckles are all on the back so she can't release them, but getting in (before the helmet is donned) is quick. The child's harness fastens to a foam-rubber pad with handlebar-type grips. A large belt, attached to the front of the pad, goes around the rider's waist to secure the child to you. The child cannot fall off unless you do. My kids routinely fall asleep back there, and we have even ridden off-road, jumping and bouncing around, with no fear of them getting thrown off. Of course, if you did crash, the child would be attached to you, which might cause additional injury if they ended up between you and whatever you bounced against. On the other hand, you can also jump up to leap out of harm's way, and the child, since it is attached, will come with you, without the need for an explanation.

May be you don't remember, but I was the one who recognized your helmet off of MH? It was right after you drove up @ hooters. I was a little nervous, since I didn't know anyone.. maybe that is why I felt the way a did.

I did not take all of it as an attack (" that's worse than the guy" did kind of sound like an attack)... You voiced an opinion on a public forum, I responded. It was lengthy, because I am used to all the questions that follow and wanted to answer them all at once. We enjoy doing things out of "the norm" and do not mind when people express their opinions, as long as we are free to respond.

Megan has a harness... we designed it and fabricated it ourselves. She falls asleep on the bike all the time!

wow, did it really say that? If a person crashes, do they really think that person can just jump up out of harm's way??? every story i've heard of people crashing is they get up after they stop moving (if they can get up at all), wondering wtf just happened.

one of my students watched a rider do a forward flip as their bike T-boned a car, dude landed on his feet past the car, and was like WTF.

i wouldn't have believed it but she said she witnessed it.
