haha I enjoyed that. I don't have any plans to take a passenger if I can avoid it... Actually, I'm pretty sure my sister is getting me a seat cowl for Christmas. XDI took a passenger for the first time yesterday. My passenger has ridden their own bike before. It was a very good ride, although stopping was a bit hard for me because of the balance. Other than that, as long as the passenger understands that if they lean one way while on the freeway, you are going to change lanes....you'll be fine.
