Looks nice. But would rather spend the money on a truck than a Harley. Same speed and handling.

All the time. About two years ago a bee went in my beard and it didnt make its way out untill I got home. And it flew oit of my beard. My beard then was about six inches longer than it is now.

Alright, got a question for you bike riders (hopefully someone with a sportbike can help). I was going to dinner tonight with a friend and she asked if we could take my FZ6r. I ended up saying no because I wasn't quite comfortable taking someone yet since I never have before. What advice do you have with riding with a passenger? I'm looking around to see if there are any classes but haven't found any yet. Here's my bike if it helps to see (and I like showing it off)

I recommend you both take the basic riders course. She should because its good for a passenger to know exactly what you, as the operator, have to do.

Otherwise, she needs to hug you close (never a bad thing, right?) and lean as you lean and don't move around too much. Dismounting is crucial. Make sure she knows to not get off the bike until you are 100% ready for her to do so.

I've only ridden with my wife on the back one time. I didn't enjoy it. We were on a sport bike-esque monstrosity (the Yamaha in my earlier post in this thread). Because the seat sits at a slight forward angle, her body weight was involuntarily pushing me too far forward and it was terribly uncomfortable. I would do it on a cruiser in a heartbeat. Prolly never again on a sport bike.

The big thing is that she understands that small movements on her part can feel like big movements to you.

Also makes for a nice view for the guy behind you!

It's not too bad. Really depends on her weight and if she's ever riden before. The best passenger I ever had was a chick that also had her own sport bike. She would sit up on the highway and hardly hold on. I've had others that would lay all over me and I'd catch myself praying that they'd just fall off.

My advice would be to find a big empty parking lot or a back county road and just ride around for a bit. Remind her to keep her ass on the seat and her shoulders in line with yours and you'll be fine.

Wear your gear and buckle your lid. You'll be just fine.

Nice bike too by the way.
