My dad takes his kids for rides all the time . He's taken them on a couple of rallys (rode there with family chasing) . My sisters are like 10 and 15 (I THINK , I don't really know this family very well , long story) . He'd often say "this tank of gas is Katie's , and the next will be Ellie's " , and just take turns until they got wherever or they got tired . I don't think he takes "the boy" out , as he's like 5 or something . Little bugger prolly wouldn't sit still , anyway .

Like Jim, my rule was when he can touch the pegs I would take David. When he turned 7 he could touch. I bought him a JR jacket and a good helmet and we go together fairly often in the summer.

I was riding like an old lady with him on the back because I didn't want to scare him. After a few times he started asking me if we could go for a ride, then he started asking if we could go fast this time

BF likes the Kat but he loves riding on the Busa. I started out with short trips around the neighborhood, then one day I picked him up from school. He was the hit of the afterschool gang

The longest trip was a day ride to GMR. He's a great backpack. I try to stay off the freeways as much as possible and i'm super cautious. I tend to short shift a lot and let the torque take over. (I love having torque )

BTW: He's 14 and salivating about getting a bike on his next birthday.

Pretty cool I guess, but man does that kid have a big head!!!!

I was prolly about 6 or 7 when I started riding with my dad, and never had a problem holding on.
