Here's an activity for you. Ask a bunch of kids if they would like to be a passenger on your Motorcycle. Every single kid agreed? (Ignore the nerds who didn't). Now ask them if they would like to travel slow or fast on your bike. Every kid voted for fast? Now just for a moment think about all the Motorbike safety concerns plaguing India due to the lack of road safety awareness. Do you still think kids should even sit on your bike on such dangerous roads?
Let's take Rohit's example to delve deeper into this topic. Rohit is a Chartered Accountant who has a six year old son Rahul. Rahul loves it when his father takes him on Bike rides, especially when he rides fast. Now think about this scenario from a safety perspective. Rohit often makes Rahul sit in front of him and rides at the speed of 100 km/hr. The kid is bound to interfere with Rohit's bike control. Strike one! At such high speeds what happens when Rohit has to brake suddenly? He can't hold Rahul's arm quickly and lose his bike control. Nor can he keep control of his bike and watch Rahul fly off the bike. Strike 2! Is little Rahul wearing a helmet to prevent a head injury? Highly unlikely. Strike 3! The example reflects how vulnerable kids are on the two wheels. Therefore, follow the below mentioned tips to keep your children safe and sound on your motorcycle:
Hoping these tips make your ride with your children much safer than earlier. Remember one thing; you are your kid's idol. If you take safety seriously, they will as well. Furthermore, you can go a step ahead in being a responsible biker and invest in decent bike insurance policy
