I think its great that she rides her own. Nothing wrong with a pillion, but its really nice on a longer trip (like Alaska) to have 2 bikes and twice the storage.Well, we started at the same time, and finished in the same place, but we each rode our own rally. We don't do the "2-up" thing, cause when her kids got me the shirt that said "if you can read this the *chick* fell off" she went out and got the one that said "THIS *chick* got her own bike!" She was out 45 min longer than me and had more distance and a higher moving average (61 vs. 59)...that said, yeah, if we'd ridden together, we WOULD probably have had the same points.
see you soon..
