    Great thread! We're switching over to an adventure bike in the coming months. Something I've wanted for a while but wasn't prepared to let go of the sportier road ride...even as I looked wantonly down the gravel roads and side trails. Rode a BMW GSA around New Zealand, although only on the road the comfort for both of us and easy riding style was a real eye opener.

    There's a thread for a RR called 2up the hard way on the TAT (something like that) I gather it's pretty 'adventuring' for 2up.

    Two-up? That's a bit limiting, isn't it?

    Oh, OK, sometimes two is plenty when the luggage is on....

    Many motorcycle riders, ride solo… I did for years. Riding two-up can be one of motorcycling’s great experiences, especially if you and your passenger enjoy a trip across a few state lines.

    Riding two-up is a great way to share the pleasures of motorcycling for even a day ride.

    In my view, a “motorcycle-date” is the best date. It starts with a spirit that is full of excitement….. a great way to begin any day of riding…..

    [​IMG]

    An appreciation for shared riding and open roads has been the topic of many of our conversations over many shared miles.

    [​IMG]

    Conversations about landmarks, the country side in general, the people you meet, all of this and more as you ride en route to your destination.

    We seem to arrive feeling invigorated from the days ride…. ready to continue more conversations of the day and what tomorrow brings. It’s become pretty clear, I’m no longer a solo rider.

    [​IMG]

    I enjoy immensely when we stop…. shut off the bike, and dismount. Then when we remove and pull off our helmets, I’m greeted with a big smile and kiss.

    My rider is a great date, my partner-in-life…. who isn’t simply along for the ride….

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She’s a co-rider. And as in life in general, she too shares responsibilities for the safe operation of the motorcycle. Two-up riding is a team sport, and that means working together to make the ride both safe and fun.

    Yes, two-up makes for a great date…..

    We take the old XL500R out two up for some dirt adventures..and the wife likes it..she prefers when we go dirt riding more than riding on the street.

    these are from a 60mile day trip up the mountain to get some beers..all dirt

    the old two up machine with its home made passenger pegs that sit nice and low so she dont feel cramped up on the bike..the factory ones mounted right to the swing arm :eek1

    two up riding is fun..we had to put it on the back burner for now..wife was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and is currently going threw chemo treatment..but the plan is once she is back in good enough health we are gonna hit the trails again..but now on my KLX650R :evil but i got to figure out something with the seat she only rode on it once and said it was not as nice as the big cushy XL500
