Was made easier for her than on my Tiger as there was no top box on the BMW.All was well until we got back on the Triumph and she clouted the box with her foot, putting me off balance. That was as close as I'd want before dropping it
couple of bikes ive test rode from manchester would not let me take a pillion strange when you are trying to access a touring bike to do with insurance

I keep suggesting that my wife has a blast around the local villages in the chair of my outfit and she just scowls and tells me I'm a dick head :unsure:

She'll go pillion if she's got no option but ever since she was stupid enough to let me take her home on her old Triumph Daytona after I blew the engine in qualifying for the Snetterton 8hr endurance race she punches me in the kidneys if she thinks I'm about to get a bit out of order :)

She also got a bit sensitive when I promised to use the coast road between Ramsey and Douglas then went over the mountain instead and pretended she wasn't on the back and her 1200 Bandit was a race bike but she's not put in for a divorce so obviously forgets after a nights sleep.

We look hilarious on a GS1200 he sits a foot above me, causes some worries though as people slow downs to stare on the motorway! :laugh:
