well riding one up and riding hard is purposly putting yourself in danger...does that make more sense to you? i know it is slightly different, but it shouldnt be "ok" even by itself. so how is it less ok 2 up? plus, motorbikes can hurt caged passengers who did not even choose to get on a bike.

there sort of is a point you have but its a grey area.

we knowingly get on our bikes. most know the risks. some are stupid and think they are invincible. same for passengers. if they have brain cells they should be able to deduce it could be dangerous, and they take the risk anyways. it also is their choice. its really about a combination of trust and intelligence. how about people who jump out of planes with a chute packed by someone else?

we risk our lives in the hands of the last mechanic to touch our bikes, or in the hands of the engineers that made them. in the same way the passenger trust in the skills of the driver. i would assume they knew what kind of ride they were in for when they hopped on.

i have taken several girls for rides. some one or two times, some were regulars. i rode not only within my limit of trust for myself, but within my limit of trust in their abilities as a passenger. they are part of the equation too.

one girl i would take around the blocks a few times, nothing fast or curvy at all. another girl liked the speed, and i would take down long straights and let her feel 100+.

the best passenger i had...oh...those were fun days. she was the only one smart enough to clue on the engine noise, and brace her arms on the tanks when were stopping so she didnt squish my junk into the tank. she would put her arms around me and clutch in a deathgrip when she knew i was twisting the throttle. she would lean when i leaned. she was part of the ride, she was into it. she stayed aware, the other girls...well they acted like they were sitting on a chair watching a movie or something. she pretty much always knew what gear we were in, where the other girls didnt understand how gears work.

homegirl...she would beg me to take her up and down allen parkway...a couple nights we scraped the rider pegs of my 1990 FZR 1000 going round the clover a dozen times or so. good times!

Thanks for the safety tip and reminder Patrick, my wife, 2year old daughter and I have been in your store several times. Awsome store and top notch advidse might I add. But I am well aware of the dangers of riding a motocycle as I have lost several good friends (one almost just last weekend as everybody knows) and with my father being a motocycle mechanic him self for 27 years I've seen a lot of his friends and co-works come and go. But thanks once again for the reminder that no one is invincible. One can always appreciate great advise.

I have only had one person on the back of my bike. I gave a friend a ride home when he had been drinking. It wasn't a good idea- he didn't want to get to close to me and it was a really tricky freakin' ride, even at <30mph

I wouldn't ever trust myself with someone else on the back going at any speed.

I remember reading about a guy who had a girl on the back of his bike. Something happened with a cager or something- girl died... boy lived.

I couldn't even imagine the horror of facing a family. It's your fault- no matter what anyone says. Like it is ultimately the goalies fault that the puck slides into the net, no matter what your defense-men mutter to you after the shot. No matter what they say at the funeral or wake... it was still your fault. Truth or not, it's not going to stop playing in your mind.

forbid you love her.

One more thing... just because this thread got me thinking.

Sometimes when I see these chicks in tank tops I wonder if the guys have seen cotton shirts get scrubbed out... screaming pain. I know some of you guys have a lot of experience, but I wonder if you have ever really thought out the scenario of having a girl screaming while a nurse scrubs out their rash.

I ride as a passanger and we go those speeds you speak of and sometimes beyond. I love the forest and the lower we are the better the ride. I know the risks..I have watched them happen right before my eyes. But one thing I know is you have to know the one your with and they need to know you. To ride safe and the limit you just need to know each other and me and my husband do. No matter what speed or curve or straight away you take and accident is an accident and any factors can play a role in it. I get bored to easily and want to fall asleep at too slow of a pace. We have 5 children that we love more then life itself but we will still enjoy riding too.

Just my 2 cents but look forward to getting out there again soon...its been awhile bc I broke my foot.

The only females I have had ride on the back was a friend of mine and my GF.

I care about them, so I would not want anything to happen to them.


I believe if you are going to ride aggressively, DO IT BY YOURSELF.
What about when you have a male passenger on back?

Maybe its just me but everytime I see the name Racer x in a thread it suddenly turns to a big heap of $h!t. Sorry that you don't have any confidence in your riding skill & ability to control your ride. Last I checked the title of the thread was in the from of a question, which means everyone can give their own opinion as to how they feel on the subject. Maybe if you take your Prozac before you touch that keyboard everyone at this website wouldn't think your a a$$hole. Come on do you really have to jack up every thread you touch.
