Yeah, I put it up on the bike and strapped it down. Stood back, scratched my chin, imagined my son between me and that bike and decided against it.

I ended up taking the bike over to my friend's house and he trailered it down for me.

Looks like a lot of fun.

Can I ask how old your son is & if he can put his feet on the passenger pegs?
I want to take my 6 year old son riding some back roads & trails on my XL250,
but not sure he's big enough & what the laws are.

My son is 8 y.o. now but he's been a passenger for the last few years. When he was 5 and 6, trips were around town, no more than 35 mph, full attgatt and no longer than a few miles (think "drop off at school" kinda stuff).

Like you, I would not take my son as a passenger until he was able to reach the footpegs. He could reach them a few years ago because I was riding a '99 Ducati SuperSport 900. Thankfully, he's grown and can now reach the pegs on the R1200GSA.

I've never checked the laws, just done what I feel comfortable with. Gear and can touch footpegs, as I've mentioned but also..... able to hold on himself (I don't believe in those kid straps that I've seen advertised - never thought it was a good idea to have yourself strapped to your kid if you were in a wreck) and old enough to understand the consequences of falling off at XX m.p.h. so that he doesn't fall asleep back there!!

Blur ; thanks for the first video ! Made this Grandpa smile watching your son work his way around the trail . Back when i was that age , had a minibike with no suspension and a lawn mower engine . We would have thought we died and gone to heaven . My son was never interested in riding , have to work on the grandson . Enjoy your time as he grows , it goes by too fast !

Haha, I think Xzibit would have let him just sit on the CRF50 with it on the GS' tail, and make motorcycle sounds to speed you up ;). It reminds me of the time I saw a guy's fancy mountain bike mounted like that on the back of his BMW (I forget whether it was an F or GS).
