File this one under “questionable parenting.” And “insanity.” And “kinda awesome.”

YouTube user Jacob Hughes’ above video apparently shows a father and son motorcycle ride—that long cherished bonding ritual—except the son in question is six years old.

Sadly, there’s little context for the clip. Its description only says “6-Year-Old Boy Riding Father’s Harley On An Open Road!” It’s hard to say when or where this actually took place. Either way, it’s almost certainly totally illegal. Then again, the family that gets horribly maimed together stays together.
