Now it's time to ride. Begin with a pre-ride briefing, reminding your child to hold on, sit still, avoid the hot exhaust and always keep his/her feet on the pegs. Never place a child in front of you. Like all passengers, children belong on back, raising a separate set of worries about falling off. A passenger harness can prevent this worst-case scenario. By far the best is the Moto-Grip ($179.95, plus $79.95 for the optional child strap; (_www.hatchventures.com_). Exceptionally well made, the Moto-Grip creates two secure, convenient handholds on the operator's back and chest. An optional security strap keeps the child from falling off, and acts as an early-warning system if he/she slumps, slides or otherwise shifts position.
