Pillion Suspension Question - August 23, 2010, 09:35 AM

I've had a little 2-up experience so far, but I plan to go on some longish 2 up rides with my girlfriend this fall and had some questions.

My question: is it a must to adjust suspension for 2 up riding for safety? I'll be on my CBR and in the past I've just added some tire pressure and the bike seems to handle ok, just more weight naturally. However, I don't want to put her at even more risk by not dialing in the suspension on the bike. She's about 105 lbs and I'm a husky 180.

I've looked around these forums and on the net and my impression is that it is not absolutely necessary to firm up the suspension but advisable.
