kids as passangers

I'm seriously thinking of taking my 4 year old into the Pine Barrens on my xchallenge. It's not a matter of if but when. We would trailer there, start with really short rides with lots of breaks.

2 things:
1. My kid would be way safer riding between me and the tank bag, in front. We've tried this in the neighborhood, and he gets wedged in there and has an easy reach of the bars. The bag gives him a measure of support, and I'm going to fabricate some footpegs that will attach to the upper motor mounts and stick out like frame sliders. The question is, how will the law view this (passenger in front)? New Jersey.
2. Anyone have a great source for kids riding apparel? Or opinions on street helmet vs dirt helmet for a kid? I would think goggles could be a challenge.
