Would be funny to slap some hand cuffs on them once they got situated and start revving the outta the bike like you were going to take them on the scariest ride of their life.

You'd have to mount your helmet cam backwards to catch the terror in their eyes.

Pretty cool. Reminds me of the handles they put on the retired Duc GP bike that Mamola gives rides to VIPs and journos on. Very cool!

So...looks like they used 2 dudes in their video...

Looks pretty cool- as long as you're not too big around for your girl to reach the tank!

I'm pretty sure Wayne can reach around me twice. And since he has long legs he can put his feet on the ground when we stop.

i doubt that would hold very well under hard acceleration though... there are really only 4 small bolts that hold the lid to the tank... those weren't meant for those kind of forces. I'd hate for my girl to be relying on that nd it to break loose

Looks cool to me. I like how in the video it looks like the passenger isn't all up on the rider and has all this space, but in practical application my girl would be suffocating trying to reach around me and grab those little handles, not to mention bumping her helmet against mine and then I'd have to send her to time out.

So... No.

As if Wayne has ever or will ever ride 2-Up with you! Maybe sat 2-Up for photographic purposes ~ But ride? No way in hades!

Otherwise, I like it.

I don't like it and don't feel like it's a necessity. The passenger really doesn't need to hang on unless its in the twisties and then they could just wrap their arms around the rider. Seems like it could cause potential injuries in a crash that you would otherwise not have as well.
