2-Up Riding

2 posts in this topic

Are there any hard and fast rules for 2-up riding. Were looking to buy a 2nd wheeler so the wife and other daughter can ride also. We would like to buy a touring model for the 7 year old to ride on with mama and me and the 5 year old can ride on the regular one. Do you need a "specific" 2-up touring for this or can you just buy a aftermarket "2nd" seat.

Thanks

You can ride 2-up legally on Class 1 ATVs. You're still limited, I believe, to 2 people on 2-up models.

A couple safety issues come to mind when riding 2-up on a single machine.

1) your passenger adds extra weight behind the rear axle causing the front end to become lighter and you can lose steering control.

2) You lose personal mobility and range of movement on a single machine making it more difficult to shift your body weight with a passenger.

As for the after market boxes with a "makeshift" seat, don't rely on them to be a functional second seat. They're not intended as a seat as much as they're for a backrest rest for a single occupant. There are some kits out there to make it more comfortable for a passenger, but keep in mind a single occupant vehicle is just that. If you're concerned about safety. Which of course you are or you wouldn't have asked the question.

For teh most confortable experience for both mom and your daughter, I would opt for a 2-up. They have a longer wheelbase and are designed to give the operator ample room to control the machine.

Hope that answers you question. Others may provide their input as well.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
