Riding to school like this would be out of the question in Newcastle!
Small twelve year olds, or so, join with the thousands who ride little Hondas on the roads in some countries. There must be a happy medium.
The world MotoGP is in the hands of a lad from our area. As a result of today's race, Casey Stoner (Ducati) can't be beaten on points and the World GP is his!
He probably began riding as a youngster and has done very well.
I see childhood activities in a different light. Even tho we dress tiny babies in army fatigues and dress up little girls like adults and research has shown that tiny children benefit from stimulating activities and their brain developes FAR more than we ever imagined, despite all this, I believe that children are not mini-adults nor should they 'play' like adults with motorcycles or the like. There is a time and a place for childhood.

Yes, there are laws here against more than one riding on any bike and then only one passenger if they are wearing safety helmets.

Nice photograph.
