Bullshit. 2 up on a motard is a fucking blast.... We did 1500 miles in 4 days. Lots of twisties and gravel. I think she enjoyed it even more than I did, She bought her first bike a few weeks after this trip. Spent lots of time at the gap, I was actually afraid to ride it without her on the back, even though she offered. I have almost zero solo twisty road experience on the 625, every time i ride somewhere good she wants to go. The only time i ride it solo is commuting. She is hands down the best passenger i have ever had though. I got second place in the "slow race" at VMD with her on the back. We beat a bunch of solo riders on mopeds.
