Far be it from me to impose my standards on anybody else, but I just can't let this one go.........
Went for a short ride tonite. I've got my boots and jeans on, and in the garage, I put on my Fieldsheer armored jacket, full face helmet and gloves. I crank up the bike and away I go. Found some nice twisties and ran it out. Cleared the mind after a hard week.
On the way back, I'm on the interstate in light traffic, cruising about 75, and another bike passes me in another lane. That's when I about drop my teeth!
The guy is riding an obviously brand new Trophy (paper plates) wearing sandals, a polo shirt and shorts doing about 85. No helmet, of course. But, that's not all. On the back, is his (approximately) 8 year-old daughter in sandals, a sun dress, and, you guessed it, no helmet, hanging on for dear life.
Now, here's my dilema. As I mentioned above, I don't feel comfortable imposing my standards on anybody else, but what this guy was doing was criminal. I wanted to follow the guy home and whack him upside the head. "Not appropriate behavior" doesn't even BEGIN to cover it, as far as I'm concerned.
So, my friends and fellow enthusiasts, cousel me. What would YOU have done?
