Nothing better than riding through beautiful scenery with your mrs on the back.

Nothing worse than the Mrs bitching at you after you offed, with her on the back, 3rd mud patch in a row :eek7:

We had our first off in sand. In retrospect I should have attempted the patch alone first, but we were doing the right things - stand up, look up, open up. If only I did not look at the swerving tracks of the bakkie that struggled through before me...

looks familiar, my wife and I and sand on the 1200 GSA .................plaaskoop pappie! :laughing4: sy skud die baadjie af, fiddle aan die helmetjie , skop skop so bietjie met die beentjies en se, okay eks reg kom ons ry :imaposer: ek se altyd v ha sy lyk soos n rysmiet met daai groot helmet op daai dun nekkie :ricky:

I enjoy riding on my own,but if i start my pony,swambo runs out and enquires where we are going,why did i not tell her we are going,and promptly tells me to wait shel be right back :ricky:
Often i started skimping that we must get another for her to ride,but she doesnt like that.she enjoys being on the back. :thumleft:
uhhh yes doctor, i know im adicted.....

Whether duallie or superbike. . . . .if I start one of them the Mrs is there.
Whether loaded or just a short ride around the countryside or screaming at 300km/h, she loves it.

Like said before, doing anything like this with your other half is awesome to experience.  :thumleft: :ricky:

Those who ride a dual sport motorbike, also called "Enduro" in Europe:
this word comes from old Spanish and means "one rider". So why do they put this second pair of foot rests on it?

My girlfriend loves riding with me she grins from ear to ear. Haven't gone offroad with her a little scared we fall over and she gets hurt, but everytime i talk about it and say it's not a good idea the smile turns to a frown. But like the fact on sat morning i say car or bike and she always say BIKE :ricky:
