Nah, you have to have it rear facing... you wanna break the law or something? LOL

you obviously know that it's just not right to wear a proper safety helmet, but with that serious look on your face, you need some cool sunglasses, that's for sure...

Good luck, excuse me why I go and change my pants - I pissed them laughing so hard...

If I saw someone riding down the street with a baby attached to the rear fender (IN ANY FASHION!) I would have to pull over and slap him around for a while and then ask him where his mama lives so I could go slap her too!

Comon dude! If this is a serious question excercise a little common sense here.

Why bother with the baby seat at all, a Papoose or backpack style child carrier is far more practical and the kid automatically leans with the bike as you go round the berms.

There is a company in Quebec, Canada that sells a carbon-fibre baby seat for the back of sportbikes.No sh** ! I saw the ad in Cycle Canada magazine. If I can find more info, and maybe a website I'll post a link. BTW - if I remember correctly, it was forward facing, and tested in some manner for crash worthiness! Sounds crazy, but if you were going to see some nut on an R-1 slicing through traffic with a baby on the back, it would likely be in Montreal. :)

Peace Eh - P.Z.

I was just having a little fun with Photoshop to scare the Grandparents.

He is our first child and a little over a week old. I can't wait to take him riding.

Back in the 70s a customer of the shop I worked at built a turbocharged Suzuki 750 with a sidecar and an extended back seat. He could carry the wife in the sidecar and 2 kids behind him.
