    top speed with passenger

    Just wanted to see what kinds of speeds everyone has seen when having someone else ride with them. Seems like it slows up quite a bit from when your riding by yourself.

    The Speed-o-meter had got alot of people feelings hurt, "Yea mine jet ski does 75" Yesterday this guy told my cousen that his stock 1997 XL800 does 60+. Why is it that the are so off and never tell the correct speed??? I always wonder that and never posted the question the boards.

    Mine lost 2-2.5 mph with a 120 lb passenger. Part of the loss is also that you can't use "body english" or remove the seat to get extra speed.

    I agree with Mike ... depends on the riders sizes, but I used to run 77mph by myself on a stage 2.5 and 74+ with two up (110lb passenger, 175 lb driver). I also ran 72 with me and two passengers on ... which surprised me actually.

    For the heck of it, I GPS'd my stock (motor) RXP and I got 68 mph with the wife on the back. She dresses out at 140 and I am at 230.

    Ski goes just shy of 71 with me on it......

    i dont like to go faser than 60 with a passenger, in case something happens..60 feels like a million to them; plenty fast enough.
