Riding two bikes at the same time.

If only...

I'm taking a 200 mi RT today.
If the wife was coming along, it would be a no brainer. The Victory has the power for two up.
But she's not.

My Boulevard is actually a comfier ride, lower center of gravity, nicer seat.

I want to take them both.

Attach one to the other like a side car and strap the handlebar straight ahead.

WOW, I just invented a new 4 wheeler with 2 motors.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I'm in.
Buy me one!

Decided on the Suzy.
Started the morning having to charge up the battery.
Drove to Assville and decided since I already had a year on a 6 mo battery, I'd just replace it, just to be on the safe side.
Had to fight the wind, up hill, both ways, bare foot, but it was a pretty nice day to be out spreading rubber dust around.
Managed to do the whole trip without one greasy bright yellow butterfly splatting right in the middle of the windshield.
I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Tell you what though, in comparison to my Vic, the throttle on this thing is fatiguing.
