This parent motorcycle rider loses his kid pillion as he falls off the back of the bike right at an intersection in Japan! It looks like the rider went on for a few hundred meters before he noticed!

Tell your kids to hold on. For proper safety while riding pillion every passenger should see this post:

Weird - looks like the bike wasn't accelerating that hard, and was already moving. My guess if the kid leaned back. That aside, he was pretty smart to run off the road like he did. Something like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEYmAT0N5bQ - might be a good idea for them?
