Question Motorcycle date ride to the drive-in?

Have any of you went on a motorcycle riding date to the drive in?

(I met a girl online who rides a Harley Soft Tail bagger and I also have removable saddlebags for my 919. I thought it would be a fun second or third date to ride up to the drive-in together.)

What did you do for seating? For audio I plan on using my Zune's radio receiver and my battery powered speakers.

I was looking into an inflatable sofa and backpack camp/beach chairs as seating options.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Nope, I think you have it covered! I particularly like the inflatable sofa idea!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

2 drawbacks to the sofa idea...................

It weighs about 20lbs.

It could take awhile to air up with a foot pump.

Get a 12V cigaret plug on the battery and bring a portable compressor!

Use a piece of hose, push one end onto an exaust pipe of the Harley, the other onto the inflation valve of the sofa, this is the best use of a Harley I can think of...

j/k, sounds like a cool date to me.

My wife said that would kind of be romantic and sweet if you pumped it up. Like a night time picnic.

I didn't know inflatable sofas existed. I also didn't know anyone ever bought a zune.

I have an inflatable Aero queen bed from REI. It packs compact and comes with its own rechargeable pump. Give the pump a charge at home and it'll inflate the mattress in about 2 minutes. It was about $60 and I have used it many times over about 5 years and the the pump still charges up fine.

The only thing I am not sure about is where are you going to have sex? On the sofa? Under it?

That sounds like a very sweet date idea. Could you just throw a blanket on the ground and chill there?

This was my first thought... Why go to a drive-in? It isn't to watch the movie. You'll need to bring a tent.

Every drive in I've been to has usually had a small section of theater seats off to the side.
