There is ZERO reality on those so-called reality boob-tube programs.

Pretty flippin' sad that people actually watch that shit.

The tire is in the shadows.

The passenger in sitting upright which is what a passenger would do when stopped. (Not that EVERY passanger leans like they should as we saw in a prior post.)

Oh. My. Gawd. On TLC?

So many reasons not to own a TV. Man. I could feel my brain rotting. Explains a lot.

Its hard to say. She is still holding herself back with some gusto it seems. The bike is pretty leaned over for a stop with a passenger. It is an off camber surface as well. His foot doesn't show much sign of sliding however and seems planted pretty well. But then even in the shadows you think you could see some tread. Stopped? I think not.. almost stopped.. maybe so. Tense for rider and passenger.. you betcha.

Isn't it fun being an Arm Chair Coach and Detective. We do have better things to do some of the time.

If he is he must have some serious leg power to keep it up. I'd say he's within a degree or two of no return.

Airchair riding is a lot safer than the real thing. You don't even need special clothes.
