There is NOTHING not ghey about everything you just said. I bet you get a really good deal with a happy ending... I haven't tried that route.

And for the record - Coach is a CHEAP designer bag.

A few hundred for a bag is nothing... couple grand is high - thats true sticker shock.

Sorry for the thread-jack.

Buy your wife gear! Make it a gift!

I have about 15k plus of backroad experience w passengers of all sizes, from peeps my size on the 250 to 80lbs on a busa.

Good advise(some of it lol) above.

Remember you are the one in control of the ride. First thing I tell a new passenger is "I dont care if you enjoy the ride or think its boring, its your choice to come ride w me today. If and when we get comfortable riding together we'll ride faster etc." That takes work on both parts.

The general stuff about keeping her hands on the tank while braking, squeezing her knees when accerating and elbows into my sizes when braking in corners(hands on tank) not only takes weight off your back and hands but also makes the passenger be aware of the ride and not daze off. It keeps their mind going and it becomes more of an 'us' ride instead of 'i ride w him.' They will feel the accomplishment even if they are doing little more then trying to save their annoyance on the back.

Starting slow w each passenger allows them to see how you ride and what you're willing to put up with. If the first ride is 'hold on or get dropped off' they will need to feel like they need to hold on for dear life which puts all of their riding weight on your person.

Its a fine balance but when a couple is comfortable riding together speed, cornering and long distance can come out of it. We use to chase people down on 3090 after letting them leave before us My exgf use to turn around on the busa to take pics while I held her leg w my left hand in the corners

The only passengers I had were friends' gf/wfs that rode w us or friends of mine I trusted and knew were responsible. Lilred had been on multiple rides w us and she's a great passenger once SHE adjusts to the rider. Again, that's their part.

I've been on the back of a bike. Its nerve wracking! You think its chill on a sportbike...fk no. A passenger wo confidence will be trouble.

As w solo riding, speed, cornering etc etc comes best w fluidity and smoothness. 2 up is no exemption to that rule.

Just my 2 cents if it helps.

squoddy dear beatiful sexy rider, you are one of the few exceptions to the rule, my wife is another, her favorite store is academy, mostly the fishing section. as for the OP I'm not hating on him, however some of us find it irresposible to go real fast with a passenger, and you already know well that my wife would bust my if I tried that BS with her. I do think its whining about fingerprints on the paint and thats putting it nicely, if my rear seat rider scares me then I find a way to beg off gracefully or just plain say no. I see alot of things the OP is using as excuses and my opinion is that the OP either needs to teach his SO to ride with him and be responsible or just find a way to just say no so that he can go out and do his thing, kinda like masturbation, with himself ya know "private time". just seems like he's looking for absolution or comiseration and I will give him neither as I don't believe in the former and don't experience what he is so cannot do the latter

i only take my girl out if we are going lest then 55 mph (cruising) other then that....just like everyone said.....its not fun! unless she know how to ride and knows what's she's doing, then thats a different story! you wouldnt even know that shes in the back. it took over a month for my girl to learn how to lean with me and learn how to make me a safer rider.
if you are taking her out... then tell her what to do till she learns.... it sounds like she is new at riding in the back,

1. YOU are responsible for your passengers safety.

this means schooling them on what is to be expected from carrying them, as well, what they are too expect. if neither agrees, then dont carry. PERIOD

2. passengers who put thier hands on the tank while braking is perfectly acceptable. Sorry if you are OCD about finger prints. Get over it, actually get your wife some gloves and gear. ever have a passenger hold onto you while braking? crushing nuts is only a portion of what can go wrong. the tank is a perfect place for hands to go.

3. This isnt some bimbo your trying to get a thrill ride out of. This is your wife. treat her with some respect, she wants to share something with you. not experience it exactly the same law breaking way you do.

When my wife used to ride my bike I liked when she rested her hands on the tank bc it took pressure off of me. When braking all the pressure was on the tank instead of my back pushing my nuts in to the tank.

riding two up takes practice and skill. In my younger days ok dumber days i'm only 28, she learned quick, we worked on things until we found what worked. she not strong enough to hold on wide open throttle,the legs help alot. we used to do some really dumb . 120 mph and up, i would feel her sliding of the back so i would reach back with my clutch hand,crab her and pull her back up to me while powershifting(no hand on clutch@140) cause we din't want that rich a-hole to beat us in his 75,000 car.

Then one day i didn't make a corner, ICU for both of us lost our new house-credit,almost our lives, everything so use your head. Can you imagine trying to explain to your kid or kids why momy is dead. i almost did ,Not cool!

we healed up and She thats rite she bought me another rocket, Know she has a ring on her finger and a triple digit max speed !
