The pic of this couple on a Harley VL with sidecar (above) was taken before the start of an endurance race inTrondheim, Norway. Now, she’s a good sport and he’s a lucky dude.

Don’t know the origin of the above pic, but it’s a great one. She’ll need to watch the strands o’ fabric on the hot pipes, but this is bliss at its best.
