I can remember when I was a kid riding on my dad's motorcycle. He had a Yamaha bike, and I can still recall the blue gas tank that he would put me on. I would grab the middle of the handlebars just like the kid in this video is doing.

My dad never really took me very far, usually just around the neighborhood in Cape Elizabeth where I grew up. It was a short ride but such a thrill to be the envy of the 'hood, even at 6 years old.

This kid not only gets to travel long distances on his dad's bike, but he gets to actually twist the throttle back and speed up on a stretch of road with no traffic and no turns.

Did your dad ever do this with you when you were a kid?
