Howdy Zippy,

I certainly agree with you on the "reach the footpegs" requirement. Looks very much like that little girl is just teetering on the seat and those little hands of hers don't look capable of holding on any too tight.

Interestingly enough, that bike in the photo is running California plates....

Maybe if they sat side-by-side and reached one footpeg each? Or maybe not.

You can get footpeg risers that will work, if they have proper gear and are mature enough to ride. And you can always get a friend with another LT so they can both go at the same time, but it better be someone you trust.

Yup...there is a picture of the same guy (I think) on December 17th (touring Bikes) with another child (boy) on the rear. Must've been giving the kids a ride. Wow...but at least the boy's dressed a little better. Driver has on no gloves and tennis shoes. I learned that lesson the hard way after losing much of both feet and ankles in a wreck years ago. "Chuck Taylors" suck at protecting your feet against asphalt and the weight of a bike!!!

I get it now...

HE DOES HAVE THE TOP CASE OFF....and of course your LT transforms into a nimble sportbike with that mod!!!

Seems like it was just yesterday that someone was posting that with the topcase removed, "...gone is the fear of tip over and falling" Sadly, it was fllowed quickly by another post entitled "OH CRAP!"

Not funny in reality, but overconfidence is the cause of many fatalities and a whole lotta road rash!

There are only two that I know of. BMW sells really nice ones, but they are expensive. And Illium Works. Cheaper, but IMO they are fairly unattractive.

Well it's not the Illium Works model - I agree, unattractive - and I couldn't find anything on BMW's website on the LT equipment page. Seat, ComSys, cupholder, but no footboards.

My little girls are tall enough (4'11" and 5'1") to reach the foot pegs. We already have some protective gear. Need helmets though... I will take one for a ride and leave her sister with Kathy, and then switch. They are comfortable with that idea.
Because my ex is such a b1tch, and an attorney, I will not have anyone else take either of my kids for a ride. Way too much liability for that other rider, and I would never do that to another human being!!!

That doesn't look like the ones I was referring to. This guy's boards, I believe, are at an "adult" height, but there is a footpeg-kinda-thingie on either the front or rear edge of the board that swings up into a raised position for his daughter.

Next time he rides to work I'll try to get a photo.

That pic reminds me of what I saw in Manila not so long ago:

A young child, 2-3 years old, standing on the floorboard of a scooter, between the rider and the windshield. The rider was maneuvering through heavy traffic with the child in this position.

Guess nobody cares about their kids anymore!

BaH!!! There's still plenty of play in those rear shocks. Rumor has it, they're on their way to pick up a few of the cousins.

Just think how many people they could get on an LT!

And while we are all commenting about the fun/safety of sharing our 'rides' with others, including the young-uns, take a look at her garment-less legs and no gloves!

What an ASSHAT!!! No gear, not even jeans. That helmet is WAY too big and wouldn't do much for her in a crash. I hope he sees this thread and re-thinks endangering his kid like that...

I bought my 5 year old newphew a 50 for his birthday...and a proper helmet and chest protector and boots and neck roll and gloves and riding pants...you get the idea. All that to ride a 50 with training wheels in the dirt no more than 10 miles an hour. This pic really pisses me off
