Hang on! One of us doesn't seem the right size for this motorbike

THAT'S a very big bike for a little tacker ... and apparently police weren't too impressed when they saw it.

Police published this image on their Facebook page in the Friday  "What The" section, highlighting the absurd things officers see while on the road.

The photo was snapped at the intersection of Maroochydore Rd and Horton Pde last year and it's only just come to light publicly.

In their post, police say the youngster on the back of the bike was "barely big enough to wrap their arms around the rider".

The rider was pulled over and fined $146 for riding a motorcycle with a passenger under eight.

Police made sure the little one got  to school safely.

In the two hours since the post went up, more than 860 people have "liked" it and 450 have left comments.
