Semi Squid Mom and squid daughter a must see!

So Virtuframax and I were having lunch in Naperville. We see this pink scooter driving east on Chicago Ave and then turn in the plaza to go into Rocky Mountain Chocolate. It is a mother driving the scooter she was wearing a half helmet, sandals, shorts, and a bathing suit. What is more suprising is her young daughter I estimated her age between 6-9 years old riding with her. The little girl is sitting in front of her mother on the scooter as you can see in the picture while wearing half helmet, swim suit and sandals. Virtuaframax was lucky to get a picture in time I think everyone in the shopping center had their jaw dropped. They got they purchases, mounted up, and proceeded back home! I thought you folks would get a kick out this.

When I bought my scooter they actually suggested having my daughter ride in front of me. I just shook my head.

I don't ride, I cook!

Rich's Yahama in Lockport. ( http://www.richsyamaha.com/pages/home/default.aspx ) The sales guy said your daughter can ride on back, or if she's more comfortable, put her in front of you. She IS tall enough to reach the foot rests, but that was his suggestion.

I don't ride, I cook!

So do you let your daughter ride with you? I dont know there is just something about letting either one of my boys ride with me on fiance's scooter let alone the bikes which they have been itching to do either three. Could you imangine if that lady messed and fell and pushed all her weight on her daughter.
