If I'm not mistaken, Islamic or Muslim countries apparently do not permit female passengers to sit astride a motorcycle. Females must sit side saddle on motorcycles. Wonder how that works should the female passenger fall asleep?

As well as most "Muslims only" rules work out........Not well.

FWIW, unless someone has severe lower extremity neuropathy (up to the groin) or had damage to the lower part of the brain that monitors body position in space, no pillion with a backrest is falling off the bike.

If they do, its because the rider is riding like a goofball.

Imagine making a split second stop with 100 lb+ of unsecured bagage on the back, I say unsafe. Then again my wife talks to me the whole time...distraction?
