Motorcycles don't need us. We're just the happy passengers.

I was riding as a corner worker while Kieth Code's kid was on the track and holding a book in his left hand for turn 3 at The Streets of Willow so an off-track camera could take a cover picture. We were moving at a good pace around the rest of the track and his one handed display hardly slowed him since we were keeping the tires in-line.

So, kiss your bike. It's plenty happy you're on the ride.

Damn... I wish I had a nickle for every time I have had to listen to this lame ass captain obvious crap.
Yeah. We all accept the risk... What you just start riding and figure it out?

You see, I don't give a crap what his skill level is.
He doesn't know what may be on the road around the next corner. He doesn't know who may veer into his lane. He has no idea what may dart out in front of him.
These are all reasons why racing is held on a close course where these variables can be managed.

Bottom line is; "how do you think he would feel after crashing and taking her life?"

Do you think he would enjoy the smug self-certainty you credit him with.
Don't think so.

He is placing her life in danger and either too stupid or too careless or too immature to care. Not only is he a SQUID, he is a dangerous SQUID.

I'd kill the mofo if he was riding like that and crashed with my daughter on the back. And I think most father's would feel the same way.

Cept for Sally. He would get his wife to kill him.
had never heard of this squid thing until the last few years
yes i rode through the 70's
in usa too
squid i thought meant a new member of the
us navy
no most fathers not interested in murdering their daughters partner
as by that time in life
the daughter should have responsibility
and control of her own life
unless not brought up correctly or
low iq.
she has her own quality attgat and looks like she is an experienced pillion
yeh and you watch out
for that meteor strike whilst
riding.
more vision with no helmet or half face
maybe you can see it and dodge

imho
2c
no offence meant

Oh, goodie; another one telling me this is going to happen to me the next time I cross the double yellow.

Take those assless chaps off and borrow a pair from the wife. Ask her for you balls back while you're at it.
Excuse me, dickhead, but nobody fucking "lets" me do anything. A grown woman is able to make her own decisions no matter whose daughter she is. I'd say that woman on that bike made her own decision too. Go back to your cave.

Been there done that and not proud of it.

I find it funny how if a HD rider puts a car tire on the back of his bike he's an idiot according to many here.
Yet when some squid decides to use a puclic road as a test track "with a young lady on the back" it is excusable as both are smart enough to be able to "choose their own fate."

[. . .]

Bottom line is, she trusts him with her life and he is doing a shitty job of protecting it.

(and a lot of what I said earlier was sarcasm )
This picture doesn't bother me in a "men should protect women" way. A rally car team has a driver and a "passenger." If the driver screws up and breaks some metal and tissue, we don't think of the navigator as "the poor, helpless, naive passenger."

These two are like the rally car team: talented and aware of the risks but really shouldn't be practicing their art on the road, which is what bothers me about the picture.



Now, this picture bothers me in the "men should protect women" way. The driver is geared up and about as prepared as he can be for the fall, but the passenger, even if her shirt was pulled down, is not as prepared for the fall. If the fall occurs, he's more likely to walk away with sore muscles and maybe a broken bone while having to send flowers and an apology after her skin graft surgery.
