mindless

It's morons like this who get the publicity and give bikers a bad name. You don't hear enough about the bikers who do a lot of charity rides etc.

HE IS A PRATT........But

Quite agree with steady2wheels because he was endangering other members of the public as well himself and his son ,was probably not taxed or insured and being a complete idiot.My Dad used to sit me on the tank of his BSA A10 ,so got fuller46 beat by a good many years ,when i was 3 in the late 50's and ride up and down the roads around our village.But then there was next to no traffic ,no helmet law ,no national speed limit and the cops left well alone unless you were a thief or worse.I can still hear that A10 rumbling around now but i dare say fuller46's Dads RD400 would have beaten it!!!!

In many other  countries this is quite normal, in fact whole families are seen hanging on to a small bike sometimes livestock are transported by bike . In England this is an offence and he obviously doesn't give a stuff about the law or the childs safety.

AS ONCE SEEN I SPAIN...

 When coming down out of Andora towards the Med many years ago i saw a local woman in her 30's riding a Honda C50 ,wearing only a bikini , with a small child perched on the edge of the seat in front of her ,an older child on the pillion ,a child standing on each of the rear pillion pegs ,another sat facing rearwards on the luggage rack and a final young one sat in the wire basket!!! I KID YOU NOT!!! I nearly fell off my bike as i overtook her ,but that might of been down to her wearing a very small bikini.But then again if all six kids were her's she might have had some piston slap!!!

Thanks to the Internet and abilty to save footage like this for 'almost eternity' he will be judged also by his son who will read articles like this 20 years or so later and know just what crimes his father was getting involved with.

Yes i sat on my father knees and steer'ed  the car down the road (and can remember it vividly) but my father was'nt disqualified, wanted, un-insured, ilegally dressed, on the pavement, a thraet to pedestirans & playing kids .  .  .  with shotgun waiting at home !

Asshole - sling him in the cells, i say    -   next please !
