So after reading all the tech articles I saw one that I knew I should do. Which was lowering it with flipping the rear suspension. What a difference and has made me love the roadie much more now. Thanks for writing up these articles all.
Don't usually ride 2 up but I'll reply if I ever do. Wife has her own bike. Yes the fender ends up right at the top of the white on the tire. Oh yes it rides much better for me cause it sits more like the 1100 I had.
Well rode 2up yesterday with the wife and no problems other then scrapping my pipes around corners which I do regardless. Never bottomed out or anything and hit some good bumps. Together we weight around 350lb.
