    Yep. He had pants when he started the trip. It's not an adventure unless you lose your pants.

    We don't need no stinkin' rain gear!

    I am suprised the face shield is up though, I can't stand rain hitting me in the face when I'm riding.

    I can't either. He probably can't see shit with it down. Bugs on the sheild turn into a nice unwipable goo when it rains. I know the face, I've done it.

    She certainly isn't helping matters by leaning the wrong way. Just another fine example as to how it is always the woman's fault. :lol3

    If her hero chose a bike that could effect more than 20 degrees of lean they'd be ok.

    Looks like the other bike may have high sided into the red one?

    This guy deserves props for a good panic stop. Nice grip on the FRONT brake.

    ^^ I was thinking of how (relatively) lucky the downed rider is that he didn't get run over again by the next guy. Props to rider #3 for reacting well (and not following too closely it appears)

    I tell newbie passengers, who might become frightened by lean angle, that if they try to stay vertical when the bike leans, then I will just have to lean the bike MORE to compensate. Usually that is enough incentive not to lean wrong.

    I also tell them if they get scared, to close their eyes and become part of the bike, lean as the bike leans. Without the visual cue that they are not vertical, they can't otherwise tell as the relevant forces are in balance.

    Probably fogged and too many droplets on the inside. Rain sucks when it gets on the inside of the screen.
