Riding is NO Hobby
Been riding 22 years non-stop, day in day out, cross country and back, countless times. How about you and the wife, who bought a bike she has to have YOU drive for her? I have seen it happen repeatedly. Squid driver puts the bike into harm's way and miraculously walks or limps away after putting passenger in wheelchair , emergency room or coffin. That's the real world!! I have SEEN it. A sportbike was not made to carry a passenger at speeds of 100mph plus. One little movement or gust of wind and you will be wobbling or tank-slapping down the highway. Especially a NEW model that is coming back with reports of a light springed front end. You have severely modified the handling dynamics with the addition of your overeager passenger. A smart man learns from his mistakes, a WISE man learns from the mistakes of others. Big difference between WISE-man and WISE-ass. Start being a MAN and using good judgment where others are involved, or NOT and become just another retired BIKER. Your choice, ultimately.
