A heart warming image.

As seen on the streets of Camp Perry during the National Matches.

Do none of you have problems with this?

First, he's riding a bike with those idiotic "mountain bike" bars, instead of proper drops.

Second, his seat is far too low - he's got far too much bend in his knees.

Third, he's not using clips.

And look at his back tire - it's well below appropriate pressure.

He's doing twice as much work as he should.

Riding a bike like this may have been acceptable, fifty years ago, but society has long moved beyond this sort of archaic nonsense.

I can't believe there are still people who let their kids run around like this.

His pants aren't hanging about his knees soooo even tho he is missing a sports bra I will count that as a win!

Mountain bike bars and no clips are much more tactical, though you’re right about the seat height and tire pressure.

He's riding one handed.

If he brakes, it will be with the front wheel only and will crash.

At least he is not on his phone.

Does the new cell phone law apply when riding a bike?

I would think yes, if he is on a public street.

Awhile back I had to transport a guy in a electric wheel chair from the lockup to home, he was arested for DWI, they actually had a tow truck transport the guy's chair.

Helmet, elbow pads, knee pads. kidney protectors, riding gloves, safety glasses. This kids parents should be in jail for child endangerment. At least he gets to carry an AR to ward off space aliens and Zombies.

Boy, this really brings back memories. I used to ride my bike out to the Everglades, with my dads M-1 Carbine, M-1 Garand, or his WWII Captured Arisaka Type 38 and spend the day shooting and swimming with my buddies.

We didn't use knee, elbow, shin, pads, nor helmet's. Heck, we didn't have safety glasses, and the only hearing protection we "might" have with us, was some wadded up cotton. I never wore hearing protection. Between that, and trimming jet engines at take-off power, it's no wonder why I have tinnitus :gun:
