He called the video "6 yr old riding Harley.! Dad's DD. lol"


"Ryan's been riding with me before he was a year old. He's very comfortable on a bike, he actually rides his own dirtbike," Hughes told Right This Minute.

"He could've been wearing maybe a little bit more protective clothing but I mean, that's just how I've grown up riding and that's how I continue to ride."
