I feel like 'their motorbike' should be accepted, if there's no indication of the rider's gender..

One of un-elected words was "organs"...

So, if /pengedara/ is the word for 'rider', can it refer to any passenger on a motorbike, or is it more specific to the person actually controlling and operating aforesaid motorbike?

What are the specific terms for "driver" and "passenger" where /sebuah sepeda motor/ is concerned? Would a passenger on a /sepeda motor/ be /seorang penumpang/?

Also, is /supir/ usually used for the person who operates the /sepeda motor/, or is there a different term for that? Would /pengemudi/ be an appropriate term?
