My SO's first ride

I have been riding solo for a couple of months now and each ride I become more familiar with this outstand scoot.. I felt confident enough to finally go 2up. Upon arriving home from work. I grabbed her riding gear and said lets go. Although, she looked surprised the change into her riding gear was almost instantaneous.

We rode the local streets no major hwy's, but with lots of scenery and I noticed that she was very quiet..and sleeping..go figure? She was very comfortable an loved the ride that much and is looking forward to our next outing...

05 LT (ocean blue) "Jenny"

Re: My SO's first ride

yep, it happens... wait till you get on a long ride and feel that little "bump" on the back of your helmet...
I usually just put a hand back to touch the leg/knee to make sure she hasn't fallen off...

YEp, +1. When we had our LT my wife would fall asleep easily. I would constantly have to make sure she was still there. Not anymore though. She really is not comfy on the GS. Oh well. I love the GS.
