Dude, I had to fight my wife to get her to start wearing pink! Not too much now, but a little here and there is dead sexy. Got her a white jacket, thinking about going with the flat pink HJC CL-SP for her.

But that would be kinda selfish since I'm totally getting the flip-up CL-MAX

See, it flips up

its ok, i'm not sure i will make any kind of comittment to her. I'm pretty stingy with who i give rides to. I mostly offer to let my HD friends ride bitch when their cruisers are in the shop :evil and will offer a spin to close friends. Other than that, you have to ride me before you get to ride pillion!

I don't need to hear about your Hardly friends riding you in order to get rides on your bike... That's between you and them. :eek2

How much would I have to tighten the preload if I was carrying a 110lb girl? Would a click be enough, or should I go more?
