    A (possibly unlicensed) male motorcyclist drove up and down our local street (with a 50km/h limit) on an unregistered bike in a very dangerous manner, clearly speeding excessively while also doing "wheelies", all while not wearing a helmet.

    But most troubling was that there was a young girl (about 6 or 7) seated behind him, hanging on as tightly as she could but she was not restrained in any way and was also not wearing a helmet.

    Other than the obvious numerous driving offences, would this be classified as "reckless endangerment of a child" and, if so, what would be the range of penalties, punishments etc.? What other traffic law offences could have been committed here?

    I have a video of the entire incident and feel I need to take action to protect the child and prevent this cowboy from ever risking the life of any child again.

    That is up to the police to work out.

    All you can do is either report it to the police or make a citizen's arrest (which I don't recommend). If making a citizen's arrest you don't charge them anyway.
