The world welcomes a new motorcyclist

Well it's official, Conor has his own helmet, a new riding jacket and one of these

Now all he want's to know is "can we go for a ride on the motorcycle?"

Congrats!!

I have my first bike ride at 9 months old on a '78 CB750 dad had me between him and the tank. As a kid I always wanted to go for a ride, and had my own helmet by 6. Never had a jacket until I started riding on my own though.

One of my mates was from the Cook Islands in the Pacific Ocean, and says they used to tie their kids to themselved with a big sheet so they couldnt fall off!!!

Those handles are a great idea dude. The kids love going pillion, especially when you pick them up from school. My boy is the "cool kid" since his friends saw him on the Candy Red 9'er...

I've been scrounging for backrest money in the couch cushions since his helmet arrived, untill then he's just gonne have to hold on tight.

we've already ridden to work/daycare one day last week and he was BMOC at daycare all day and when I showed up to pick him up after work he already had his helmet and jacket on ready to ride, I now have a serious bargaining chip in the behavior wars.

That's when I started! Congrats on being a very cool Dad! That's great the leverage is helpful for successful parenting.

Instead of a backrest, prioritize assembling full gear. The rule I always follow is passengers must be geared. I am conservative with passengers, but not everything is under our control.

Have fun!

They're made by Outlaw Racing Products and sold by Pit Posse, I got them off E-Bay but you can order them direct from Pit Posse.
Outlaw Racing Passenger Belt handles

Motrax makes a nice belt that's morse of a kidney belt style but finding a distributer on this side of the big salty pond was proving a little difficult.
