2 up or not 2 up..That is the question. 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Another interesting poll on Motorcycle.com (free, by the way) about riding with a passenger. A little over 100 votes in 1 day, the choices were, yes I like it, no I don't , and I don't care either way. 50% said I don't care. 38% said NO, and 20% said yes. So, what's your take? Let's have our own RSC poll.

Yes, with a passenger that knows proper etiquette.

If they understand they are luggage (sit still and don't shift around) then I'm OK with it.

I take my GF every now and then but my preference is solo.

Solo also. I haven't had a passenger since my wife and I were dating. Like 25 years ago.

I ride with my wife on the back all the time. Even better with the new F6B but the Roadie barely noticed it either. She been riding on the back since my stupid R1 days when we were dating when I was 20. She likes riding with me and is a very good passenger. Never (almost) complains about my shenanigans. I can actually only think of twice in recent memory.

And I ride the sheot out of the bike wether or not she's back there. Don't tame it down for her at all and she still loves me

98% of the time I'm two up.

She's driven jet boats at 130 mph, has done the quarter mile and a bunch of other gear head stuff, but wants no part of riding a bike in the crowded Chicago suburbs. I can't blame her.

It works out though, not an anchor at all.
(I've never been allowed to snowmobile alone either since she moved up from Florida. She has her own 1200 cc sled though, the biggest 4 stroke they make.)
