1up is way more fun. Feel like im baby sitting with one on the back!
So true!!

I've had a couple guys ride on mine. My on again/off again rides his own ride, so it wasn't too bad with him. I just had to take it slow at first to get a feel for the weight difference. By the time we got up to Houston I was comfortable with him on back. The last guy I had on the back was about 6'4" and well over 220lbs, never been on a bike in his life and about squeezed the out of me. Had to tell him to loosen up so I could atleast breathe and not pass out with both of us on the bike. The whole ride lasted maybe 15 mins cause he was fidgetting waaayy too much. I'm not big on having anyone on the back, so there has to be a pretty good incentive for me to let anyone climb aboard.

No dude will be riding on my bike! lol Mostly cuz theyre too heavy...

But I take my girlfriends and my little sister around all the time. If they have good balance and stick close to you its no problem! Just make sure theyre geared up.

No one will ever go on the back of my bike...I'm afraid I'd break if they leaned on me!! LOL So the solo cowl stays on 99.999% of the time.
indecision may or may not be my problem
