Unintentional, but why not throw a little BDSM into the mix?
I never got that adventurous, it's been so long since I had a special cuddle..... I forget who gets tied up

I'd say she is looking past him but flipping someone off.

An update on Jellybean's sidecar:

I rode the rig up to Mission, BC on the Saturday before last and left it with my friend Barry Bates. Barry worked, until recently, for the outfit that built my sidecar, but prior to that he had his own shop in Mission. This fall he quit working for DMC and went home to BC and one of his first tasks was to build me a steering modification for the Cali. He worked on it all last week and we went up again this past Sunday to bring it home. Man, what a difference! The modification he made consists of two heavy aluminum plates machined to accept the bike's stock forks in a pair of holes just forward of their original position while two short dummy forks occupy the holes formerly used by the original forks. The steering head remains in its original position as do the stock triple clamps and the rake remains the same. But by moving the forks forward, the offset is increased and the trail is reduced making the front end feel much lighter and easier to steer. I knew there would be an improvement, but this is beyond what I'd hoped for. It takes waaay less effort to turn the rig in either direction and on the freeway I can comfortably cruise at 75mph (120kmph) with no effort required to keep it tracking. Worth every penny! Thank you Barry!

I made this drawing to help explain the modification and geometry. Note that no dimensions are listed in an effort to keep unscrupulous bastards from ripping off Barry's design.

These are not the actual plates used on my rig, but it gives you some idea:
