I finally got my wife to climb on the back of my bike and ride with me this Sunday. She was always leery of street bikes, but for the last couple weeks had been hinting around that she could be interested, whenever I would be talking about rides I wanted to go on this summer. So, without her knowing, I went to Revzilla and bought her gear from head to toe. When it arrived, she was totally siked, except for the boots. I got the wrong size. Gotta love revzilla though, I had replacement pair that fit at my door two days later. So now I have created a monster and she wants to ride everywhere. My only problem is, that Sunday was the first time I ever had a rider on the back of a street bike. I didn't drop it or have any embarrassing events (at least not that she noticed..). One thing I'm not too sure of is what I need to do or how to hold the bike while she mounts/dis-mounts. I wound up standing to get the most control. But I could be doing it wrong.
