Video to share

My husband has his Class M and can ride, but doesn't own a bike. The only bike at our house is mine, a Vstar cruiser. Sometimes he borrows it. It is a mark of how much I love my husband that I will sometimes even ride in back on my own bike (there is no "" seat on *my* bike, thank you very hard).

For Mother's Day (we have four kids, 20, 17, 12 and 10), it was *his* idea to ride in back. At one point at a stoplight, there was a pickup with two men and a woman driving across our path, and they all leaned out the windows, cheering and giving us thumbs-up.

He took video to prove the event.

I haven't learned how to post video directly, but I'm gonna try. I'll put both the video (hopefully) and the link to my photobucket just in case. The one that starts with both our faces visible is the one in question.

But there are a couple others too. Once we got home, I wanted him to drive next to me and shoot me lying back. It's my pathetic excuse for a "trick;" as close to a real "trick" as this old fat lady on a big slow cruiser is ever gonna get. It freaks my kids out even though it's nothing.

<embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid55.photobucket.com %2Falbums%2Fg143%2FLillianAMS%2F64609ef4.mp4">

http://s55.photobucket.com/albums/g143/LillianAMS/

Hope this works. Don't bother to give me any about how he has to give his Man card back, either, 'cause he ain't gonna. He's very ego-secure.

That really dosnt look like a good idea... What happens when you lean a lil too much to the right and eat in front of your kid without a helmet and die... Is leaning back worth it? just sayin... nice bike tho!

Well... thanks for the concern as well as the compliment. I don't do it every day. I generally do wear a helmet, for one, and usually don't lean back, for two. I learned I could do this when taking long rides, and I needed to rest my back. I feel quite solid doing it. It's not a handstand or a wheelie or a 120mph corner. We were having fun this morning and I wanted the proof. There was no one in front of us and no one in back, we were the only vehicles on that stretch of road at that time.

Risk and motorcycles go together...



[Thought for sure any commentary would center on nut-to- configuration. LOL.]

HMMMMM...at least you didn't have all the kids on the bike with you...that's what I thought your were saying...

On a side note, falling off a bike at 20mph could do some damage as well...

some things are better kept to ones self, or at least off of a public forum whose sentiments do not lean toward what you are posting. Have fun, be safe, and think about those kids when you are riding.

At least get some full finger gloves. You don't want to get in this situation without them... and nobody plans to crash, it happens when you don't expect it to happen.


Last time I fell I was wearing A* boots, knee guards jacket, gloves and helmet. Got pinned under the bike. Knee guards saved my knee, dented the tank a bit. Boots saved my angle from further injury.

Got out of it with a fractured ankle in two places.

A month and a half in crutches then a month in an orthopedic boot. 6 months later I still feel some discomfort when fully stretching my ankle.

But I'm sure you're a superior rider and won't ever crash OR can stay in bed/out of work/ do nothing for a long period of time without messing up your personal life/work schedule/family in case you do crash without gear.
