Weekend Awesome – PSA: Keep Kids Away From Small Objects

For this week’s video, we decided to do a public service announcement for all of our readers with young children. Toddlers are curious creatures, and parents have to be especially careful about letting them around small items that they may put into their mouths and try to swallow. Or perhaps use to damage an expensive motorcyle.

This young mother learned a lesson after her toddler kept sticking small items in the exhaust pipe of her Aprilia RSV4. She now keeps her exhaust pipe plugged when it’s parked in the garage.

As she explains in the video’s description:

“Third time my toddler son put objects down my #RSV4 motorcycle exhaust pipe. I have a exhaust pipe plug now for when the bike is garaged!

One of our other motorcycles he put a socket tool down the exhaust and got stuck in the baffle layers; thankfully we wanted to replace that stock slip-on. This time I took video of items he found to put in there (fuel can vent covers) and how I got them out of the exhaust. #brap”

We have to admit, it’s kind of cute in a way. But then, we’re not the ones that have to go and replace a damaged exhaust.
