Wow, that is bs. BM, I'll have to disagree with ya on that one. But ya know what, I've been in a similar situation as a kid, just without the wheelie. My dad use to have an old Kawasaki cruiser when I was a kid (back in the 80's). He would take my twin sister and I for rides all the time, at the same time. One of us would ride on the tank, the other would ride on the back. The thing is, WE didn't know it was unsafe. I'm not sure if he knew at the time that it was unsafe. We didn't have helmets and we most likely would have been wearing shorts as well. Would I do that with my daughter? Not a chance in hell. She'll probably grow up to love motorcycles and she'll probably have a dirtbike at an early age, but she'll be taught about safety.
