My reasons....motorcycling is a risk that I take on for myself, I am not prepared to take that risk for my daughter, as a minor she does not have the ability to make those types of life choices. I would not be able to live with myself if I had an accident with her on the bike and she was seriously injured or killed.

So if you ride with a child ask yourself if your prepared to be responsible for both lives....
I have never taken any of the kids on the back of a bike for similar reasons also I think a lot depends on where you live, the traffic in the SE of England makes the whole thing a lot more hazardous than riding on lightly used roads in open countryside.
