I've never had a problem enjoying the scenery from the "bitch seat" - just that I was so busy enjoying it that I wouldn't notice that he was stopping and smack my helmet off the back of his. Less of an issue with the sport-touring bike he has now, but I am still contemplating a "spacer" type foam pillow to place on the seat between us so I can brace myself against the back.

I would actually like to learn to ride myself (it really bothers me that we have vehicles that I can't drive)...problem is that I am short (5' 2") and even the smaller bike I am tippy-toe to touch the ground. (...and have already dropped it once because I can't stop it once it starts to go over).

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" Vee-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's best friend
Lotus: poly bi married (to TT) female, "it's complicated" relationships with Dude/JaneQ/MrS (1+ years)
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
