riding two up was not a big deal. We had just bought the bike and did not relize just how comfortable it was. the rear shock was not able to handle that much weight, but we just went slowere in the rougher stuff.
I think we had done about 500 miles on dirt road and about 200 of it was rough or slimey. I think the total miles was around 1500.
As far as tips go, IMO be compromaising.
I like to get out and get into the really rough stuff and not have to many luxury items, however if your significant other is not into this, you need to make sure her needs are met so that way both of you can enjoy yourselfs.
where are you going on your trip. 2 months sounds awsome?
