2 up

Wondering how much difference it makes having a passenger. Am guessing the bigger the bike, the lesser the difference. Just want to avoid dumping it with the new girl I just met.

I ride two up quite a lot. Just remember to be smooth, brake sooner and low speed stability can suffer (depending on your passenger). You also have more weight to hold up at lights etc.

If you're a new rider and she's never been on a bike before perhaps try taking an experienced friend out first. That way you'll get a feel for it with someone who's confident on the back..

Garage
I changed out the passenger foot pegs and installed the 3 inch mini boards. Makes it much easier for the passenger to dismount.

It can depend a lot on the size of your passenger....?

Thx guys. If I find a permanent GF I'll practice first, then definitely go for the Mustang Touring Seat.
