Riding 2 up

Hey, just had some questions about riding 2up.

I have a 2007 zx6r. My girl has been riding with me for about 3 months now and is wanting me to get a little more aggressive in the turns. My questions are about her riding position and also my bikes suspension. I weigh 135 and she weighs 105. Is this hard on a stock suspension with no adjustments made?

Also i am a pretty small guy, and when riding aggressivly tend to lean off the bike a little more. She was wondering how much she should be leaning off the bike with me. We already get pretty low but she wants to get lower. Any tips on passenger riding position are appreciated.

Also, on an unrelated note, was wondering how i can tell if i
Have more tire avalible. Other than looking at my chicken strips (about half inch from the edge of my tire) i am unsure how to tell exactly how much more i can lean. Is it just an experience thing i.e. you find out when you lowside, or can i tell by a feeling my bike gives me?

By the way, we both ride with all gear. Leather jackets, leather pants, gloves, riding boots, helmets, etc...


Thanks in advance for any replys.

Now on the chicken strip issue. Please tell me you are not trying to get full lean with a passenger on back.

Thanks for the link.

I did not mean to imply that i was going for full lean with her on it (yes we are both wanting to get lower). Getting full lean out of my bike was more for me riding solo. But i do want to know what full lean feels like so i know when i am trying to push too hard with her on the back. I need a refrence point for when we get lower i can know not to go further because i am getting close. Hah sorry but does this make sence?

Everytime your 2up, change your rear suspension setting to harder. If it's too soft the front wheel will lift in a corner and then you will be hurt and pissed.

And sorry that i keep posting questions, but another thing is my girl tends to slide forward on the seat a lot, is there something i can put on the back seat, or even a new back seat i can put on that will keep her from sliding forward so much?

Tell her to place her hands on the tank to support herself, I wont even ride with a girl unless shes holds on this way, really keeps the weight off my lower back

Well for your last question they sell a passenger set of handle bars that bolts to your fuel tank for her to hold on to. There really isn't anything else she can do. And remeber to always ride in your comfort zone. You will get better without realizing it.

Now for your avatar question. Download the photobucket app and then upload your pics. Once that is done there will be a little "i" at the bottom right hand side of the screen. Click it then grab the image code and insert it here. Also remember it has to be a certain size. I think it 500x500. There you go.

Now make a intro thread with a shit load of pics of your bike and if you want I guess you can post some of your girl to. Best way to get a load of responses. Lol
