It seems like I have looked at a lot of pictures on this thread featuring people crashing their bikes with a passenger wearing a tank top and sometimes shorts and flip flops, and fake helmets. But in the picture causing all the fuss, they both look to have spent a lot of money on gear. I don't think you buy gear like that expecting to go slow, and you would not spend the money unless you planed on going fast. I have seem many do a lot worse, riding down a deadly road on a chopper, girl in tank top and shorts. He is on his side of the road, is not crashing, and I think some people just get old and do not like to see people having fun.
