2-up? what's the appeal?

i know that i'll probably get flamed for this, but what is the appeal of riding 2-up? i've never done it, so i have no point of reference. it has just always seemed to me that riding your own ride would be much more appealing. but, when in a car, i hate not being in the driver's seat. so maybe that has something to do with it as well.

With ATGATT: not much.

On a cool night with a hot lady sidled up tight behind you, and her nipples poking you in the back.....

Well think about it

You haven't had the right ATGATT-clad passengers. There's nothing better than a hot chick in her leathers.

I read the whole thread before posting this.

Ever wax your seat? Armor all? Get a girl on the back, make a good firm stop and Oooohhh... Aahh. Breasts in the back.
This is from when I was a young buck. The 3 girls I have spent most of my life with all started as a motorcycle ride.
The one I have now its been 8 years and every year we go some place on the bike for a weekend. She has no interest in having
her own bike. I am fine with that.

Before I bought my RT, I took her for a ride to make sure it was something she liked. Her first comment was "You don't have to wax the seat on this one"

Yes sharing the good times and the OH SHIT Times are good. I travel and ride a lot alone too. She does not mind at all.

Are you old enough to know the difference between masturbation and sex with someone else?
Leaning is way more fun with someone else onboard.

Some of us use our motorcycles as primary transportation. That means that sometimes we need to take our kid somewhere. Further, my daughter likes riding on the motorcycle.

Well, my wife likes to look at / take pictures of the scenery...listen to mp3's...and adjust our route to her points of interest.

Generals don't drive, just instruct :)

I get to have someone to share the ride, and a backrest...

My first two up was nearly 30 years ago.

I ended up marrying her. With absolutely no regrets.

my old lady got a bike a few years ago. she crashed it monday, tuesday, and friday while taking instruction from the MSF master instructor, and then it sat in the garage for 14 months before she sold it.

so it would seem that some are not cut out for 1 up.

because your odds of getting get laid after the ride is over go up significantly ...
but then again maybe the hand cream is your ticket.
