At first this video of a dad letting his 6-year-old take the handlebars of a Harley Davidson seems badass. But after the novelty wears off you think, "Holy shit, this is dangerous." 

Regardless of how much control the kid actually had of the motorcycle—YouTube commenters were quick to point out that, at high speeds, handlebars don't move the bike much—the kid was not properly dressed for the occasion. He has a helmet on, but the rest of his body is unprotected with shorts and a t-shirt. If they were to crash, regardless of who was driving, the kid's skin would be done for. 

Clothing aside, what do you think: should this dad have let his kid take the reins?
