I love your lower post. How did you do that!!!So.......what's it worth to keep quiet about you postin' you better half's weight on the 'net? Just kiddin' couldn't resist. Glad you are enjoying it!!
Good advice!...However, when you come to an intersection, plan to stop. If you try to keep the bike in motion and ease through the intersection and then suddenly have to stop because of a car you didn't see, you will drop the bike especially with a passenger. Good luck.
I actually do the opposite, because I want to have both feet off the pegs when it stops.I have found that when coming to a COMPLETE stop it is much more stable to use the back brake for the last few feet and not the front. When slowing down I always use both in conjunction.
