Thank you for the link!

A couple of other options are available through Royal Distributing in Guelph. They can all be found on page #292 of the fall/winter catalogue.

I have their "Buddy Belt" for my daughter when we go snowmobiling and it works quite well.

cobbleman I have had my Coocase S48 for 6 months and have been very happy. The price is right and you don't need to buy a separate mounting plate. The one that comes with it works great. My ten year old son rides with me and I do not have the back cushion on. I think it would push him to far forward, also he wears a motorcycle jacket with back pad so that gives him cushion.

Also, do be careful with the falling asleep thing. Kids are used to falling asleep in the car, and the motion has the same effect on the bike. But don't let that stop you. The time spent with your little ones on a ride will be great for you both.

Thanks For The Info

Thanks all for the input. The first thing I did was verify that both my girls can reach the passenger pegs (they can). I really liked the links for the passenger belt. That is a very neat idea and I had never seen one before. I'm looking into the US distributed one. I also agree wholeheartedly on the top-case to keep the munchkin from sliding off. I did take both girls on a short ride in the area, they were thrilled to death and have been bugging for another ever since. Looks like I need to get a top-case for next year (our cycle season in MI is quickly winding down ).

I know its never polite to hi-jack a thread, but since I started this one, I figure it's not too large a faux-pas. I've been looking at top-cases. I'm really fond of the Coo-Case Astra 48L. Seems of fairly decent quality for a decent price. It also has a backrest option. Can anyone out there provide feedback on the Coo-Case???? Thanks in advance.

kenneth_moore I got a backrest from Pirate's Lair for my son to use. It's a nice looking part too, albeit expensive.

+1 on the feet 8 yr old lil dude rides with me all the time but not until his feet could both reach pegs flat...also top box is real good idea, i dont think i'd let my boy ride if i didnt have one... better safe than sorry. communications system is also nice...makes teaching the child when to lean easier...also nice for a quick "HOLD ON!" in an emergency stop or swerve, and just plain making sure the child is alert and not off in some far off land fighting zombies. most important slow down, be extra cautious and have fun.

bigboy292000 You can find belts with handles on Ebay, try various search words, that is where I bought mine... I actuall mount it backwards too, so the handles are sort of in front of me. Allows my 7 (soon to be 8) year old son to wrap his hands around me a bit more.

redfox My daughter uses the hand grips. I do have a givi box and backrest pad w/ amoto adjustable plate so i can move it fwd so she is close to me.

I've witnessed this one first hand, not even a mile from home none the less.
