Not sure you caught it earlier, but I do believe you were the subject of an earlier discussion. There was a picture of you coming from the other direction. If I remember right, it was mostly kudos for style ,form, position on bike, looking through curve, and a few knocks about open face helmet and blue jeans. Nice pix.

I really think you were not given your fair knocks. Clearly you aren't paying your fees around here.

Forget all the good points.. looking through curve, bodies a little to the inside, relaxed, both driver and passenger, and having gear on, apexing the turn with a bit of margin left, tires look inflated enough for the extra weight, And it seems like a good ride.

NOW....
Riding apparel?? seriously.. thats appropriate street riding apparel for sporty twisty asphalt riding and riding to the edge of the tires (we will bring up tires later) ? Not only that but from looking from behind there are visibility issues, dark blue (Duke Blue?? come on now.. you can do better) and black.. Where are the day glow colors? Hiking boots for the passenger... is she hiking or riding? (nice new ones too.. I like them) Will those pants do the job for her if you go down? Does her jacket fit. It looks baggy like the padding could slide around due to it being too large.

Tires... knobby tires for assertive street riding.. what where you thinking (other than having a good time LOL)?
Those tires also look like there isn't much of a chicken strip left on them. Are you sure you were riding conservative enough?

Tool box. Nice job on getting a tool box mounted on the bike and but then painted black.. . Can that rack support all the weight you can pack in there?
And really .. wouldn't a milk crate be better, more visible and more suitable for that bike? At least put reflective stickers all over the back of it..

Visors... ah... they are open.. what good is that?

Camera on helmet... Do we get to see what the view was from there?

Well you did ask...

All in all.. a thumbs up... but we aren't really supposed to admit that here now are we?

My first thought, too, though my second was related more to that Brooksian Alternate Universe:

Please do. Having hit the 6-0 I'm going through that Unstoppable Expansion stage. I sew, even have a sewing machine, but have always been a bit weak on doing alterations.
