Opinions on riding with a passenger
I purchased a 2007 v star 650 Classic about a month ago and I have ridden it solo since, I have had several requests for a ride. I'm curious if I could get some feedback on your perception of how well the bike performs with an "average" (135 - 160 lbs) size woman passenger who knows how to ride.
Any input would be great, such as does it handle well? is it doggy? braking issues? anything to help give me a heads up on what to expect would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

the steering gets lighter it's a little unnerving at really slow speed, make sure you adjust the rear shock for the extra weight or you can bottom on the big bumps, ouch
