I've been told that she strikes a nice view to traffic behind us.
5'1"? 100lbs? Where did you find her, Ringling Bros?

My Wife does'nt have any issues riding on the rear of my 848. We have done 300+ miles in a day and she does'nt have any complaints afterwards. She is about 5'5" and 115 lbs. We go to Daytona Beach which is around 90 miles each way and spend all day on the bike and then ride home. When I'm on the brakes, she will put her hands on the gas tank to avoid sliding into my seat.

Yup, that's the trick. I just make sure my wife isn't wearing a ring that might scratch my tank.

She should be wearing gloves.

That's what I tell her. The last time we rode where it was a bit cold, she said, "I should have had gloves".

I said, "Imagine if we went sliding down the pavement. You wouldn't have been so worried about your cold hands".
