i wouldn't have believed it but she said she witnessed it.
so did he plan on doing that or did it just happen? i'm guessing he got lucky.

My children have always ridden with me. The older three are grown and gone now with their own busy lives. I have a 5 yr. old at home who has ridden with me since he was 2. We use a harness from a company called Sled Pal. It was designed for use on snowmobiles but works wonderfully on motorcycles too, especially when he falls asleep.

We get all the same responses, from excitement to admiration to disgust to bewilderment. I can't imagine life without Logan if something were to happen, but I also can't imagine spending time doing things without him, especially when he enjoys it just a much as I do.

I usually only take the kids for short rides not more than 10 miles from the house. I don't like to take them in heavy traffic. They are getting older and bigger and I am in the phase of thinking it would be OK to take them other places. But even if we just go around the block it is full gear. Plus they have their own bikes now and are well versed on safety. Could not think of telling them to just put on a bicycle helmet for protection.

maybe we should get together one weekend for a ride. Megan would be excited to see another 5 yr riding.

As to the orriginal photo - AIIIIGGGHHH!!! STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

As to whether or not kids should ride... Depends. Our daughter is 11 and she wants NOTHING more than to ride with us. We are in the process of securing a harness and leathers. It's not about whether or not she CAN hold on, it's about safety in the event of an ACCIDENT. I've been riding 2-up with G-Man and gotten drowsy and shaky on the back of the bike and I'm an adult. I think the harness is brilliant - even for older kids.
