Memo to Pink: Babies & Motorcycles Don't Mix


Most parents go out and buy the most fortified, safest car known to man when they have their first baby. But rocker Pink has been threatening to take her weeks-old daughter Willow out on a motorcycle. And according to her, it would be perfectly legal.

The 31-year-old singer received a new bike from her husband, Carey Hart and is dying to take it out, which is totally understandable. After months of pregnancy, any new mom is dying to get back into the way things once were to regain some piece of herself. But who would really take a baby on a motorcycle?

Pink tweeted:

I wanna ride my new Harley my babydaddy got me! soon!!!! RT @butchwalker Good morning.. Let's go on a motorbike ride today California.

Soon after, she asked:

how old do babies have to be on motorcycles?may have to get a side car.for bubba and willow. they can wear capes and doggles and rhinestones.

And then:

no actual age restriction in CA! that's insane hahahahahah-I'll make sure @hartluck doesn't see that.i grew up on the back of my dad's bike´╗┐.

Well, apparently she is right. But she is also wrong. In order to be safe, a passenger must be able to reach the foot pegs and clearly a baby cannot. Additionally, passengers must wear helmets and in order to wear a regulation helmet, one must have a head large enough to fit it, which would mean a child likely has to be at least 8-10.

In the end, I think she has to be joking because who would really put a baby on a motorcycle? Leave the baby with your hubby, for god's sake and ride to your heart's content, but keep the babe off the motorcycle for a long, long time.

Would you put a baby on a bike?

That is just her sense of humor.

My baby rode on my dad's motorcycle. And by "rode on" I mean they sat on it together in the garage and my dad made motor sounds and sometimes they sat on it together in the driveway and actually turned it on.

No. We call them donor bikes because they are dangerous. I HATED when my folks bought their Harley. I will be honest, I worked in surgery for 9 yrs. The Harley riders respected the road, when they came to us it was usually because someone else hit that rider. When a crotch rocket injury came in, witnesses would say "they were going 60mph doing a wheely". Never fails. Crotch rockets around here are driven by a bunch of idiots. Really anyone riding a

motorcycle without a helmet looks like an idiot. No it may not save your life, depending on the nature of an accident but at least the deceased family can have an open casket or id the person. Pink is probably joking but thats my rant.

I think she was just trying to be funny.  My biggest problem with her tweets is calling her husband her babydaddy! I hate those babydaddy and babymomma terms. They sound so trashy.

In a true case of irony today, a NY motorcyclist participating in a ride to protest helmet laws died from blunt force trauma to the head after an accident. True story.

Author is a humorless alarmist, and isn't qualified to dissect the sentiment of an enthusiastic motorcyclist. Maybe step out of your cozy little mommy element, and run your ideas past someone who knows the subject? Otherwise you risk looking like a twit. kthxbai.

I was 6 when I started riding on Dad's bike. To be fair he had a Gold Wing so it was like sitting on an armchair and I was practically strapped in. Never had a problem finding a helmet though...
