Considering having a passenger, he handled the bike completely well. Having a passenger is good if the passenger knows in advance about leaning and so on.

You should come to ones of our SMRs, manuel rides 2up all the times and he has no problem taking any of the turns at triple digit speeds on racer road!

Me on the other hand, took my passenger pegs off cause i dont feel comfortable riding with a passenger in the back.

I agree completely. He is a great rider, judging by the video. Sunday rider, I think I will take you up on riding this week. School is over and I would love to get some seat time in.

Let me know when you are available.

I usually ride on tuesday after 4pm, just chilling nothing fast like on sundays, it would be a good chance for you to practice some turns and leaning.

Agreed, he looked like he was doing alright.

Having a passenger that has a feel for two upping is def a plus.
I two-upped it at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with the bf one weekend, now that was some crazy shiyat.

I bet.

Having a passenger definitely changes up the dynamics of handling and suspension. Throwing in speed and a ton of twisties only enhances it more.
