Is this plausible? I will be traveling a relatively short distance (under 2 miles) of which is mostly pavement. My crashpad is a metolius fat bastard, and my bike is a cheap ass rigid framed mountain bike.

Other than eating shit and looking retarded, I am slightly concerned about looking retarded to passerbys. Should I have any other overriding concerns?

This should answer your question.

I actually found a video with Dr feelgood.
I googled Biking with a crash pad and lone and behold.
Someone has tried it and was successful.

Anyone tried the whole crashpad thing on a motorcycle?

Not a motorcycle, but a vespa. Max speeds around 45-50mph. Worked fine, I might second guess freeway travel but I wouldn't mind using a motorcycle on short highway speed jaunts.

Just pretend you're in India or China and large objects on the backs of bikes/scooters/motorcycles is completely normal. At least a crash pad isn't as dangerous as the guy I saw on a motorcycle with seven propane tanks stacked on some plywood and tied down with coir to his kick stand and rear fender.
