OK, the title was a very small attempt at humor; a play on words. I've fairly recently come to the realization that riding with a passenger is just not at all for me. I know I risk being declared Persona non grata by the touring bike crowds, but I think it not nearly as safe as riding solo and it's not even much fun riding two-up. When I met my wife in the 70s all I had was a bike and we rode two-up, but after we started to make a bit of $ and got a car she seemed to like the twp-up bike riding less and less. Every great once in a while we may go for a short ride (in perfect "blue bird" weather), but I'm not even looking forward to doing that any more. I always tried to encourage her to get her own bike and ride with me. I never understood how anyone could ride passenger on a bike and not be completely freaked out by it. I still appreciate my Electra Glide and have always though of real bikes as Electra Glides for at least since I saw the movie Electra Glide In Blue and that other cool Electra Glide cop movie with Michael Parks. It's just that, like those guys, I'm going to ride solo. If any of you who enjoy riding two-up or those who ride as passengers and are not completely freaked out by it have the time and inclination to post your thoughts about this topic, I'd certainly be interested in reading them.
