    Q532: Is it legal for a pillion passenger to ride backwards on a motorcycle? (for example to film something)

    Strange as it may seem, and no doubt you will have seen this on say the London Marathon, it is legal for a pillion passenger to sit the wrong way around on a motorcycle as long as footrests are provided.
