Riding Pillion Behind Girl?

Recommended Posts

Never, in a million years, would I get on the back of a chicks bike.. 

Even first night bar brass have always passed me the bike and jumped on the back, when it was their bike. Back when I was a nocturnal creature.

the only problem i have had with it was comfort.

on a bike like an Aerox (and a PCX) then if you are tall or heavy in any way then it's not comfortable at all

on something like a Honda Wave or Scoopy then it's not an issue but its still weird because I'm much taller than most people (191cm)

 

don't lean back is definitely a proper answer, I vouch for that.

On an Aerox or PCX your not comfortable with you 191cm but on a Wave or Scoopy you are ????? I think you got them mixed up or you never sat on a bike .

My GF got a comment from a Thai guy -- "Can't your boyfriend even drive a motorcycle?", or something along those lines. I figured he was jealous.

Use a wig and some makeup and all will be fine. 😉

That's quite amusing and is probably the answer to the query.

 

In such a patriarchal society is just seems so strange for Thai men to see a woman riding around with a male pillion passenger. I don't think there is any more thought to it than that and certainly no malice - there's no need to look for something which isn't there - its just different than the expected norm and thus may draw attention, that's all.

I'm very sensitive to these vibes and don't think I'm wrong.

Maybe you think too much...

 

Personally I basically don't give a <deleted> if anybody thinks they have to look for whatever reason. If I walked around with a pretty young girl some looked. Who cares? If they don't like my shirt or my bike or my look or whatever, who cares?

Agree. I let my GF drive before I got my motorbike license sorted, and now if I'm drunk and she isn't, but didn't really give a toss what others thought. Just own it. But I do draw the line at putting my arms around her waist during, the rear bar it is, maybe I think too much 🙂

You think too much. I love the wife driving. 

 

I prefer the pickup, (truck) anyways.

 

the wife is Thai and she says it doesn't matter as long as it's a relative and you're not holding anything inappropriate.

When I first married my missus twenty years ago I was flat broke and used the last of my $ after the wedding party to buy a new Honda Dream 100cc in Chiang Mai -I still recall the exact cost - 36,400 baht on the road from Niyom Panich. As I have been riding big bikes all my life and no offence to her, I always (and still do) put her on the back behind me unless, as another poster said, "I am a little under the weather". One day I asked her (after noticing the odd Thai or two giving us strange looks) "what do they think about you being on a motorbike with a farang ?" She answered "half of them think I am a prostitute, the other half are jealous" ! Pretty fair comment really, given that she was a locksmith at the time and had never set foot outside the family business). Like many on here have said, 'up to you but don't read too much into Thais looking at you', anytime. Just enjoy the fun of being on a motorbike, with a lady.

Come on now. If a few guys are sitting around and here comes Joe Blow firmly holding on to back of seat with a young lady driving, this will always get a chuckle. Always.....

Been there, done that 🤣   Holdin on from behind = a bit unmasculine
