Nowadays the ones that ride many times may well be idiots, but many who are new passengers probably haven't given it much thought. I rode for years with no gear, but that was way before ATGATT became popular--just didn't think I'd crash or fall off. I was so lucky.

Hell, all he had to do was lean a bit. He isn't even close to dragging parts, not even on that bike.
Why folks with no cornering skills want to go ride a road known for corners is beyond me.

Yeah, that one ranks right up there with "I'll pull it out."

I agree, but still think that it's HER choice. I choose to wear a helmet, even though PA does not require it.
I choose NOT to wear an Aerostich suit, but hey it's my skin, I'll grind it down if I want to.
But I think it's extreme to call it a fail, especially in a thread FULL of morons going over their head on a road known to be curvy, and dangerous. I don't think I'll ever go there thanks to this thread, too many good roads elsewhere.

BTW, boobs are less attractive when they're covered in fabric too :)

I've seen enough to know that this is not 100% accurate...

False advertising, gravity, etc...

It may not always be the girl's bf fault. I had a girl years ago who won't wear gloves, or a full-face helmet, despite me telling her several times that such things are a really good idea. *shrug*
