I'm a vintage guy, progressive and revtech suspension, 93" 112lb tq to the ground. It's a kick to ride.

Bout time one of the kids showed up, with their kid toy! Peggy is the real hero, riding on back scares the sht outa me!

As to the canyon carving, or ribbon twists, the rider can make the difference, even with unequal bikes. I'm just a so so rider compared to some, reason I decided to not challenge Ron, with my "rice rocket".

Some of those Harley's can hustle though, a lot depends on the rider. There's a guy who rides a GoldWing through the Gap, and man-oh-man, he can put almost any sport bike to shame. Of course he's spent a couple thousand dollars on suspension modifications. [emoticon] And he's one heck of a rider, lives in the area and rides it all the time.

I don't know if being 70 qualifies me as being a kid though. LOL But, truth be told, that picture was taken about 5 years ago. [emoticon] And Peggy is super, I can hardly tell she's back there.

So in summary, many of you definitely prefer a SRW— as in one single wheel front and back. [emoticon]

Mind over age Howard, the picture of you two tells the story. Had a Grand Daughter on back, when daughter took our pic, that she later posted on Facebook, caption said "Dad will always be a kid"

Happy Holidays to you and Peggy!

Well, I prefer a DRW, but I have an older truck and a heavy fifth wheel. It does tend to give one a bit of a feeling of security, having that second wheel on each side. But I've never had a flat, so that could be a wash. But the truck handles well so I'm happy.
