Baby biker gets licence
Source : Ananova - Baby biker gets licence
A three-year-old boy has been granted a special licence to ride a motorcycle by judges in India.
Azeem Khan had to prove he could control the powerful Royal Enfield Bullet after his dad added special extensions to the controls so he could reach them.
"He is much safer than most adult drivers I know," said proud dad Shantanu, of New Delhi.
"I used to sit him on my bike and he would always grab at the controls. One day he will be a professional racer for sure," he added.
But Azeem, who turns four next month, is not allowed out on the main roads on his own.
"Of course I won't let him drive on the busy roads without me on the bike as well. I trust Azeem but I don't trust other drivers," he said.
And the pint-sized biker already has his sights set on his next set of wheels.
"What he really wants is a Harley Davidson but he'll have to wait a few more years for that," added his father.
PS: Just recd this link, hence wanted to share the same.

I don't believe this non-sense.
The rate at which a court operates in India.
The judgement if at all, would have come when the boy was over 18.
and yeah, that is a very good looking bullet. The milage must be atleast 80kmpl. What say?

Notice that no news-worthy site carries this news?
Because it's crap. Judges in India don't issue licences, the RTO does. Nobody is issued a license unless he/she is an adult. In fact, the driving license is age-proof in our country.

Although I applaud the lad for his obvious talent, he should be on a mini moto out on a dirt track somewhere with cute mini riding gear and helmet. Rather then being a spectacle on the road and or a news item from some obscure website.
