Taking a cue from some GoldWingers we've seen, Lynn (Tall Woman) and I have each added a passenger to our solo rides: she's got a Tazmanian devil doll I won her last summer (for doing one of those hammer/strength games at an amusement park); I've got a teddy bear she gave me shortly after we met.

We "bucket" our little friend into the passenger seat with a cargo net and away we go! (This is the extent of our two-up riding til we get more miles in.) 8)

I figure that if one little kid sees it and comments to his/her parent, maybe that driver will see motorcyclists in a different light. :wink: And that could save a life one day.

Anyone else have a "passenger"?

Cheers,

Bryna

My son has large (3+ feet) yellow duck lovingly named "Ralph". I thought about strapping him on back of the Burgman. Ralph requires a Burgman (or Goldwing) seat to sit on as his butt's big enought to have it's own zip code. However, I was informed that I'm not 'allowed' to put him on the Burgman for the same reason he no longer rides shotgun in my sons car ... sun fade. Seems Ralphs complexion is too delicate to risk too much time in the sun. So alas, I ride solo. :tongue:

Bill,

:duckie: :sign5: I LOVED your story about Ralph and his zip-code, er, rump.

My late dog had a duck squeaking toy. When he passed away, I gave it to my brother so he'd have something to remember Alasdair by. Al loved to go for car rides and "Duck" spent several years as co-pilot in Andy's Saab before the Saab kicked it. Now Duck is in retirement on a shelf. :)

I think Ralph needs a more-adventureous and hardy cousin. :wink:

Cheers,

Bryna

Hmmmm..... adventureous. Idea for a childrens story? "The Adventures of Ralph the Burgman Biker Duck".

Definitely! Could be a good way to teach kids about 1) the fun of riding and 2) safety. 8)

P.S. Today, the bear was joined by a cousin: Starbucks had a biker/pilot bear (leather gear, goggles, etc.) for $6.99. So now they have 75 miles under their er, belts (pelts?). :)

The bear sounds nice, it's a shame Starbucks is not around this part of the country.
I wonder how a gecko looks in leathers & goggles . :lol:

:lol: Randy! How 'bout a stuffed armadillo? :D

If I see a bear at another Sbucks, would you like one?
