    Child Safety Strap

    I wish I knew about this when the kids were very little. I did without like everyone but there were some close calls even only putting around. I did have helmets for them but this would have been good in the trails.. They would have had more fun I think.

    Dad would also be the air bag for the child! Maybe the other way around from a failed wheelie attempt. Ouch!

    I really like that!

    Well............. my son would rather of sat on the porch than used this in public. If it's a small child and legal to ride with a helmet perhaps but not a 10 year old.

    However, I have a friend who's son would fall asleep and not wake up while at Walmart shopping so he had to bungee cord him to the bike and to himself for the 30 minute ride
    home sometimes. I have heard of wives and ladies falling asleep on Goldwings and Harley touring bikes and my own son would do that on my Star Roadliner back in 2006, scared me a lot.

    My dad used to just put two belts together and wrap it around both of us - but I was also sitting in front of him holding onto the handlebars (so I could drive, of course). It worked for my 5 year old self.

    Too bad that doesn't come in a larger size so you could keep your GF from falling off the back.
