So I have never ridden two up and finally got the wife her own helmet on Friday so she could ride with me. I got off work Friday morning at 7am ran some errands then took her to look for a helmet, what a task that was, lol. Anyway, after that got a couple hours sleep then we went on a 110 mile round trip ride to have dinner. **** of a first ride, riding two up! So we made it to dinner then about half a mile from home we came to a light to turn left while a bus at the intersection was coming across to make a left turn into the lane next to us. I don't know what this guy was doing, whether he was in awe over the Stryker and the led lights or plain just wasn't paying attention, but I have never back peddled so fast before! He turned left and came across our lane some 15 feet inward. We were dam lucky we didn't have anyone behind us because we would have been crushed for sure, as I was back peddling I was on the air horn like no tomorrow my wife was a little freaked out but we had a good time.
