They can stand by, while I hit it.

Here is an adventure cruiser.

Maybe in the first pic he is in a hurry to pick her up and in the second he is in a hurry to get her home.

Either way... typical immature squid.

You wanna risk your life on a public road that's your right.

Major fail for risking hers as well.

Line through the corner looked fine, he's dragging his knee instead of a peg feeler, I don't see the fail in this.

...and I have a feeling she's a consenting party to his riding style.

I agree that one should take less chances with a pillion on board. However, her in full gear with what looks like a skilled rider is taking much less risk than a no gear, no helmet, cruiser rider and passenger.

Right, full gear, maybe going 60mph and she obviously has no say in getting on the bike and probably doesn't enjoy riding at that pace at all.
Speed limit used to be 55 on that highway btw, they changed it as it became a destination and more heavily travelled.

Thank you.
You provided your own answers.

I guess once a person matures a bit their view changes as to what constitutes acceptable risk.
All a grows man needs to do is ask himself, "Would I feel comfortable if the passenger was my daughter? Would I rip the balls off and kill the fricking squid if he injured her?"

Well, would you?
Most men feel part of their job is to protect the women in their lives...
At least the Harley guys do...

AND some of us marry women with the self-confidence not to need the protection of a man and raise our daughters in like fashion.

I am going to keep your post from my wife as she would cyber-bitch-slap you for your machismo laden, sexist ridiculousness.

Spoken like a truly pussy whipped puppy.

So you're saying you let your daughter do whatever she likes? Regardless?
Take those assless chaps off and borrow a pair from the wife. Ask her for you balls back while you're at it.

I started typing a reply to challenge your logic and realized it is useless.

Your experience in your trailer park has defined how you see the world and understand it. Nothing can change that.
