All the girls I know dont have nearly that much faith in their boyfriends to go hopping around on the back unprotected, and frankly, I wont LET someone ride 2 up with me unless they are protected, ESPECIALLY if it is someone I care about. I guess I just dont get it. Cute girls are a precious commodity, ya cant just risk hotness like that, it should be a crime.
amen, I rode up ACH this past saturday and sunday, and it just amazes me how many people were underdressed for canyon riding... especially when they have a female passenger in shorts and shirt and only a helmet, it's a sad sight to see.
But you can't judge just the riders without gear as squids, some are also in full leather, in a new liter bike without any experience, or in my case yesterday, we had a group that kept crossing the double yellow line to pass us (we were going around speed limit since we had a new canyon rider with us) only to stop to take a short break and then pass us again. It was getting rather annoying and rather dangerous as one of the riders crossed the double yellow and kept going to the opposite white line through a turn to pass us, my face was like
as I thought he was going too hot and was gonna crash.
Oh, and back on topic... I can't count how many squids I see on the road, there's just plenty out here in socal.
