98% of the time my wife is with me. She never rode before and I taught her how to be a passenger. Like others have said I barely notice that she's back there. Its great having someone to enjoy the ride with.

Re:2 up or not 2 up..That is the question. 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
My fiance just started riding with me. She's a good passanger. Her first ride we went about 50 miles and she was smiling. The second trip we went around 250 miles and she was smiling and wanted more miles. After getting used to her on there I rather enjoyed it. I rode the twisties a bit slower than I would alone. My hope is that she wil keep wanting to ride with me.

I enjoy my solo time, as anyone should. I also enjoy taking my son along. I just recently got our com systems talking, which adds greatly to enjoyment for both. Being able to converse is nice.

I've done cross country trips solo and enjoy myself. But having someone you care about on your back with a comforting hug can't be beat.

I ride two up as often as possible...my GF loves riding with me and I love having her with me, she's a great passenger...don't mind going solo either.

Solo, 98% of the time. My wife does not get on the bike. I have three daughters that will ride now and then but they have families of their own now.

Solo mostly, although my GF is with me now and then. She's a good passenger, and I like to have her with me. I'm not a reckless rider by any means, but I tend to twist harder when I'm solo

Solo, and always have been. Gave my Dad a ride once , during a emergency, long time afterwards wonder if he was later wanting to try it again.
