Kid riding pillion.

On my way down to Brighton yesterday on the M23 saw a bloke on a green Triumph Tiger with a kid on the back, probably about 9-10 years old. The kid was wearing shorts and a t-shirt and the guy must have been doing over 90mph. Call me old fashioned but I would say this was pretty irresponsible/stupid.

Peter Rabbit

Normal jeans, jacket from Lewis Leathers (cos some of them had colours on, not just black), Griffin helmet, and fishermans socks folded down over the tops of my boots!  Long white scarf fluttering.  Ah - those were the days.

Oh yes

I remember it well........

Prior to extravangantly purchasing a Griffin International helmet - which, then, was the most "technologically advanced and aerodynamically styled" helmet available (personally liked the kid leather round the neck :winkie:)

I had a Premier full-face helmet - all sparkly metal flake - which flipped the visor over the top of the helmet when I looked over my shoulder! To prevent this you had to physically fasten the visor down using the pop-studs it was fitted with. Trouble was you then needed two hands to un-pop the visor when you wanted to lift it - not funny whilst wrestling a US spec Bonneville round corners.......

And yes... the folded sea boot socks over the Gold Top boots... acting as a wick when it rained.....!

And the lewis leather  jackets which leaked throught the seams between the black parts and the red (and/or blue) stripes!....

We wuz 'ard in them days.....

its just

totally irresponsible to allow a child on a bike without protective gear, end of. Until they're of a legal age where they make they're own decisions then adults should have to make the best ones for them.

It might be ok to live and die by the sword but its not the kids fault the adults are dickheads. Protect the children! :smile

thats why stupid laws are made cos people see the odd twat like that and then before you know it they're lobbying a law we all have to adhere to EVERY time we get on a bike whether its down the road or motorway. grrrr

pillion

I've just been out for the first time this year:smile (how come its only sunny when i'm at work) and wore all my kit. If i take my wife or 16yr old son on the back they always wear full kit too, its not worth the risk as it hurts when you take a fall.

I see loads of riders and pillions wearing a lid with shorts and a tee shirt which makes me cringe:wacko:, its their decision to take the risks at the end of the day but even cheap gear is better than gravel rash or worse.
