Rough Ride

I met a young woman at a motorcycle store. We got to talking as we waited in line, and we seem to have a lot in common; same interests, same age, etc. So I asked her out, telling her I would meet her at her place. As it happens, I had just bought a brand new Yamaha R1. It's a really overpowered, fast bike, and though I would take it for the date as she was a fellow rider and all. I picked her up, she got on the back and, as I pulled off on this bike I had never ridden before, she leaned back and tossed her weight back. That picked the front end of the bike up and tossed me and her right off. Needless to say, I was pretty steamed that she leaned back like that and I never called her back.
