Re: 2 Up riding tips
One thing I taught my wife when we were riding was that she should always look over my shoulder on the INSIDE of a curve. That keeps our weight on the inside, and the bike does not have to lean as far. If the rider looks over the outside (high) shoulder, their weight shifts to the high side, and you have to lean the bike even further to make the turn. Also, if they are looking over the high shoulder, they may have a tendency to lean even further the wrong way, and you may end up leaning the bike so far to the inside that you start to drag something.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
