She looks a tall six year old...... not far of ready to start riding herself, maybe?

Here in Thailand motorcycles are the norm for getting around. They outnumber cars three to one on the road. Regular folks' kids start riding as babes in arms. To people around these parts it would seem strange that people elsewhere have issues about when to start carrying kids on motorcycles.

Growing up on a farm back in New Zealand, kids are passengers on motorcycles from an early age, and learn to ride quite young. I started soon after my father got a Honda CT90 to use on the farm in 1966. I was eleven, and had been riding a bicycle (on the road and off) for several years by then.
