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."

Looks like they are just out having fun. You obviously know little about riding on twisty roads......except maybe at a snails pace.

By the way, I once was racing on the street and hit a car which ran a red light. Her fault but.... I wouldn't have hit her if I hadn't been speeding.... my fault. The first thing I thought of and remember to this day is thinking "what if my wife or one of my children had been with me?" Because a long time ago, I had done the same thing with them along.

If you had been riding faster you would have beat that car through the intersection and avoided that accident.

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

Maybe they should just stay home, sit on the couch, eat lots of candy and watch reruns of desperate housewives. Then he would be "protecting" her. Then in a few years they will both get fat and develope heart problems. Will that make you happy?

(and a lot of what I said earlier was sarcasm )
Have you actually ever ridden Deal's Gap? or any twisty road? Or maybe you have but it scared you. News Flash, some people actually enjoy riding twisty roads at a fun pace and have the skills to do it reasonably safely. Who are you to say they are going at an unsafe pace?

... and the dude is still checking his bike over. Honestly, in that sequence of photos, I expected the photos after he went over and picked the bike up whilst she was still flailing on the ground to be a scene of domestic violence.

How is he failing? (serious question)

What in that photo equates to "doing a shitty job of protecting it" (?)

That is what it meant back in the 70's and no wishing can change it.

And what's with this, "You mean riding a bike? On a road? With a passenge?"
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.
I didn't realize 2BB's was still alive and kickin.

I went passed a guy to get into a left turn lane once. He was stopped 20 feet short of the car in front of him, keeping me from getting into the lane. I used about 10 feet of the shoulder to bypass him and get into the turn lane i wanted, and he freaked out. Got out of his car and started walking toward me screaming about how he was gonna kick my ass.

When faced with a situation like that, i briefly weighed my options (pull my CCW piece, or check for traffic and if clear, run the light to get away from the looney)... I chose the second option since traffic was clear
Yep. It sucks. Two weeks ago a guy pulled into my lane from a dead stop, causing me to swerve to avoid rear ending him. After I went by, he honked and tailgated me for 3/4 mile, then passed me and cut it so close I had to brake to avoid him. Im in the far right lane this whole time. So after he tries to kill me, he takes a left exit. I think he followed me to try it. :eek:

Good for you. And I am glad that works for you. In my house my wife has the choice to do what she wants as well. When it comes to MY bikes, if she is going to ride on it with me she is going to be dressed as good or BETTER than I am or she can stay home, HER choice (Usually she stays home), MY bike. If the daughter wants to ride one of MY bikes she will also wear gear or she can stay home, Since it is MY bike it is her choice if she wants to ride it or stay home, that is her choice. Now if she wants to buy her own bike I will make recomendations but since she is an adult and does not live with me the choice is hers.
