46.2-909. Riding on motorcycles, generally.
Every person operating a motorcycle, as defined in 46.2-100 excluding three-wheeled vehicles, *shall ride only upon the permanent seat attached to the motorcycle, and such operator shall not carry any other person. No other person shall ride on a motorcycle unless the motorcycle is designed to carry more than one person, in which event a passenger may ride on the permanent seat if designed for two persons, or on another seat firmly attached to the rear or side of the seat for the operator. If the motorcycle is designed to carry more than one person, it shall also be equipped with a footrest for the use of such passenger.

*emphasis added by me..
So the day I rode around with my seat not bolted down I was illegal
