Kawasaki, Please Consider Moms and Motorcycles

I am in the market for a motorcycle. The only thing that keeps me from getting one is that no one (that I know of) has made a way for a small child to ride on one safely. I have 1 kid, I am only 25, I still have a lot of youthful experiences ahead of me. I bet there are a lot of mothers of 1 child out there that would love the experience, not to mention the gas mileage, of riding a motorcycle. Apparently no one in the motorcyle industry has tried to target us as a market. With the rising cost in gas, we need to be marketed. Someone needs to come up with a child bucket (like the ones on the backs of bicycles) that would be safe to put a toddler in and take them to daycare. This would open up a whole lot more products that you could make and market to us like baby helmets, leather jackets, all the riding accessories mom would have but for baby. The only thing I have found close to this is a holster to put baby on your back but this would be hard to do and possibly dangerous with a child older than 1 yr. Please help us young moms enjoy riding too.
