At the traffic lights out the front of the shop I just saw a guy on a 2000 model fireblade in shorts, singlet and runners. Now I'm all for freedom of choice when it come to riding gear but that that isn't what this post is about. What this post is about is this guy had a kid on the back of his bike who couldn't have been older than 4 or 5. The kid also had shorts and singlet on. Even worse was the fact that the kid was so small that he had to share the riders seat with the rider and was sandwiched between the pillion seat hump and the riders back to stay on and his feet were just dangling in the air. The site of this really turned my stomach. To think there's parents out there that would take a chance like that with a kid on the back of a bike is a worry. There's never a copper around when you need one.
