If her hero chose a bike that could effect more than 20 degrees of lean they'd be ok.

This guy deserves props for a good panic stop. Nice grip on the FRONT brake.

^^ I was thinking of how (relatively) lucky the downed rider is that he didn't get run over again by the next guy. Props to rider #3 for reacting well (and not following too closely it appears)

I tell newbie passengers, who might become frightened by lean angle, that if they try to stay vertical when the bike leans, then I will just have to lean the bike MORE to compensate. Usually that is enough incentive not to lean wrong.

I also tell them if they get scared, to close their eyes and become part of the bike, lean as the bike leans. Without the visual cue that they are not vertical, they can't otherwise tell as the relevant forces are in balance.

I am suprised the face shield is up though, I can't stand rain hitting me in the face when I'm riding.
Probably fogged and too many droplets on the inside. Rain sucks when it gets on the inside of the screen.

I used to tell my daughter to do nothing, when she was a pillion, and it worked well. Just recently I took someone for a ride on me 990 adv, I haven't had anyone as a pillion for years, what a shit of a ride. I had forgotten how much it alters the handling of the bike, Just as well the wife don't want to come near the bike
