That said, if riding pillion is what you want, go for it. I just objected to what I saw as an "of course girls don't ride" feel to your post.
I disagree... I ride behind my boyfriend often. I can see all around just fine. I can see over his shoulders just fine. We ride a HD Street Glide.
I love the excuse to hold him close. I am about an inch or two taller than my boyfriend. Yes I can ride myself. Raced motocross for years as a kid and teen.
