couter Posted April 6, 2015 Share Posted April 6, 2015 I had the good fortune to get to take my girlfriend out on the FJ before my first service. Please keep in mind that we are both short. I'm about 5' 6" and my girl is 5' nothing. At first the two person riding was a little uncomfortable for me just because we were still kinda figuring out where and how our bodies were supposed to stay with eachother and the bike. Now also keep in mind, my 1980's Sabre, Molly sat in the same position, right behind me. With the elevated rear seat, I found her knees at my sides at first. We shifted our bodies trying to figure out the ergo's for a couple minutes, and we settled on something good enough to start riding. Molly has said that it wasn't the most comfortble thing in the world for her, she prefers the Sabre. The seat was comfortable enough, the big issue for her was just getting up onto the bike! She is pretty picky becuase she didn't like the pegs either, the narrow pegs "hurt my feet" getting onto the bike. This bike handled having two people really well. Sure it takes a little longer to stop, but not nearly as long as the sabre. I also didn't feel like I had ALL her body weight plus mine pushing foward every time I came to a stop. I wouldn't go activating the "A" mode, but there was enough power to tool around town and even keep pace ahead of traffic in "standard". Overall, I enjoyed it, I was happy to have my top two ladies with me(yes I assume my bike is a woman too) I'm trying to get her to go out and ride again with me soon. The first time is always kinda strange and something new to get used to. She's not keen on the idea, but I've got persistance! I hope this helps some of you guys and gals out there to at least try. Honestly, for someone who isn't sure... You never know until you try. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
