A father recently posted a video that shows him letting his 6-year-old take control of his Harley-Davidson motorcycle at a high speed while they were out riding together.

As the one-minute video begins, the boy is in the front seat with Hughes behind him as they cruise on a road somewhere in Colorado.

A video camera mounted on Hughes helmet captures the moment where Hughes gestures to his son to grab the handle bar.

Reactions to the video have been mixed, with many motorcycle enthusiasts applauding the father while others are condemning him. As several people noted, motorcycles steer by weight transfer at road speed and the father may have his foot over the rear brake.

What’s your take? Cool dad? Or is this a bad idea?
