Haha, Badbilly and Lints! Also, I have a rule for passengers. Yes...I have ridden around passengers. Lolzzz They have to be geared up...even if I have to give them my gear to take them. Over my dead body will I go down and have a passenger injured needlessly where gear could have helped. Kinda like if you ride with me, you wear a seatbelt. My car, my rules. My moto... Maybe passenger is okay with no gear, but not me. So if they refuse to wear gear, they don't ride with me. Not sure if you've considered that, but just something else to think about. Hard to have a form fitting helmet and gear for every potential passenger, I realize this. But yeah, like was mentioned, maybe set up a date and discuss gear and at least maybe bring a helmet, gloves, and jacket along. Who knows...maybe you'll get lucky and she has her own gear and moto!! Or maybe you both don't care about becoming road debris... With your other thread about being burned I thought this: I remember a video you did going super fast, maybe even hit 100 mph on THE Florida curve haha, where you had no gloves on...it was NOT just around the corner. So if you are SOW who has become a bro, don't be a dork. Wear gear so you have important things like hands to throttle a girl around both on and off moto.
