Neighbor takes a ride

Sheila our neighbor gets a ride as passenger (pillion) on the Road Star today. Went for a 2-3 mile ride around the neighborhood including Alta Vista Drive and several others. All went well and now I will probably have one or two others interested in a free ride. Only time it gets to be a challenge is coming to a stop at a light or other location. Balance is very important since the extra weight and higher center of gravity make it important to be lined up and wheels straight. This was my first passenger on regular streets in traffic.Notice the helmet is pushed back a bit, due to her pony tail not fitting under the helmet so she had to cover it and move the helmet back.
