What if you are breaking hard because someone pulled in front of you. But you now have to maneuver around the vehicle. Now you cant counter steer because she is in the habit of squeezing you in place.

My 2 cents not trying to start nothing up.

I actually like riding 2 up because it make me even more aware and cautious because someone else life and family is depending on me...
It was a lot better driving to Galveston so I am assuming she did something right.

Good point and in many cases probably true.

When ppl pull in front of me my body is usually straight while I swerve the bike. Plus I'm 225 so doesn't matter how hard my thighs are squeezed my body can move fine.
...On 3090 comming over a hill at 70 had a soccer mom doing a u turn with a suburban at the cusp of the hill where I couldn't c her. I'm glad my passenger was locked on tight cuz that was a dangerous set of maneuvers .... Had I been a car or truck that soccer mom would be dead

yeah its like some race tire, not street use. Hmm so you think 32 is too low for street for q2's? for track days I asked the guy who was doing the suspension and he said bring it down to 30 for the track for those tires.

I believe the subject is 2up on the street, so I'm giving street PSI. If you run your front tire below manufacturers recommended pressure all the time you ride on the street, you're risking cupped tires.

For 2up on some bikes you adjust the rear pressure only. If you keep 32 in your front Q2 and you get even wear (no cupping), then it's fine. If the tire gets cupped by the time you reach the wear indicators then that pressure was too low

Meant the girl squeezing me is itty bitty and I'm 225 so no matter how hard she's pressing me I can still move. I fear the day that I'm with a women manly enough to hold me down. I will definitely be checking for an Adam's apple

Have the passenger keep one arm around the driver's waist and the other arm on the tank at all time.This will brace them for accelerating and braking.It will keep them from sliding and their weight off of the driver
