Agreed.

Here we see my better half, Linzi, chasing me down in yet another race to the Ben & Jerry's cup.

i had to strap a pillow to mine when i rode from FL to NC...the seats are so bad, you'd be better off with 1 kleenex tissue wrapped in rawhide.

No women has to put up with that crap, you and every women including my wife and daughter can make your own choices. And I can make my own choices. I choose not to let anyone on my bike that is not geared as well or better than me, and I choose not to let anyone ride one of my bikes that is not geared properly.

My Wife has her own bike, if she wants to ride naked she can do that, her choice.

Now if she or anyone else wants to get on the back of my bike I have the choice to tell them to gear up or not to ride.

Like you and everyone else I have a choice as well, Why is it some of you think the ladies should have a choice about what to do and wear but I should not have a choice about what someone can or cannot do on MY bike?
