Ugh.

My Triumph and Ducati don't have rear arm holds nor straps.

I guess I need to write to England and Italy and correct them for building a bike that isn't safe for a passenger nor legal for me to ride with one on the road anymore.

In the mean time I will inquire about the bubble I can wrap around the bike as well.

I see good intentions in misguided form here.

Seems like a good idea aside from the fact that they've closed their doors as of 2010.

Just another example of blind legislation to please the minority. There are no good intentions here. Just another money grab, along with more hassle on bikers. I bet there was minimal research done. Just some hack politician trying to gain some votes, and some emotional parent complaining about things she knows little about. I feel sorry for the girl and her family, but new legislation will do little if anything about it, other than make a few people feel good about themselves.

It really isn't that big of a deal man. So it made the family feel good, that's great. Nobody is really going to be affected by this and the only people that are going to be "hassled" are the ones that get pulled over for another offense. And even then, I'm willing to bet it's a citation reserved only for those special few that love to give the police a hard time with their expansive knowledge of law during traffic stops.

keep telling yourself that buddy. Im not worried about it. I dont carry passengers, so this will not be an issue with me. What i do care about is frivolous legislation. We shouldnt be passing legislation to make people feel better. Laws should be passed with lots of research and then voted on by the populous.

I was using this "Love Handles" when I was having a passenger in my Triumph Speed Triple.

Love Handle 3

http://news.motorbiker.org/blogs.nsf...-the-trick.htm

GF was feeling more secure grabbing the handles than just holding with her hands to the leather jackets.

1. I think passing laws is important enough that, how fast it gets done should take a backseat to whether or not the law makes sense.
2. Do we need elections every time a law gets passed? I though with a representative govt. we don't have to vote on everything.
3. Agree 100%


The problem I have with this new law is that, right here on little old MotohHouston we have a population of hundreds of active motorcyclists and I think we were blindsided.
Somebody with a special concern got to a politician and got a law passed that isn't really going to do anything but make a few people feel better. They "did" something.
Remember the Brady bill?

That was pretty much exactly what I thought when I read about this law. This is incredibly pointless.

Now if only there was a way to require a "good judgement endorsement" for passengers, to give them some responsibility for who they choose to ride behind. That would really make the passenger handle effective.
