Haha looks can be deceiving! It's not as fast as she looks. I think top speed is 134? But that's still plenty fast on two wheels..

Way faster than I want to go on 2 wheels, but I am getting old and wimpy when it comes to my riding.

I drove by the scene when they were administering CPR to this guy. He got halfway through the corner and ran out of talent. Happens all the time around here. http://www.mercurynews.com/peninsula/ci_23589965/san-mateo-county-fatal-motorcycle-crash-skyline-blvd?IADID=Search-www.mercurynews.com-www.mercurynews.com

I'm young and wimpy when it comes to that thing. I've seen way too many wrecks that have not ended well to not have any respect for these machines

I definitely suggest you take a 2up riding course. If not with her than with whomever. But it takes specific skills and an understanding of the differences in the way to handle the bike. And it's best to learn them in a training environment.

Just go for it if she don't get it she'll fall off and just go get yourself another one lol just kidding

Just start off slow
If she's doing something you don't like you just stop and tell her but obviously take it slow

They're the ones that have to adjust to your riding style.
Going to a safety class for every new passenger you put on might not be cost efficient

I drove her around in my apartments and just told her to hold on and trust me and to lean when I do. Went pretty smoothly I think. Definitely gonna have to do it a few more times before I take anyone out on the streets
