Three-Year-Old Gets Motorcycle License

Three-year-old Azeem Khan has been granted a motorcycle license by a panel of very optimistic or sadistic Indian judges. His dad built special extensions for the bike's controls so he could reach them. "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," said his father Shantanu.

Hopefully he had some special extensions to reach the ground when he has to stop as well. Publicity stunt aside, why doesn't he have a Honda 50 like all other kids his size? Come on!

As far as I know importing motor cycles into India, is restricted and expensive, you have to buy local !!!!
(based on a mate who wanted to ride his bike across India, and had to prove he still had it when he left)

I imagine that wasn't very difficult, with him driving it and all.

Heh... I learned to ride when I was 6 and someone had to catch me whenever I wanted to stop. Glad I never ran out of gas, haha!

Didn't get my motorcycle license till I was 18 though. 3 is just crazy, I can't even imagine it. Almost to the point that I think the kid in this article is actually older (but looks younger, you know?).
