I am really looking forward to riding with her and can only hope she enjoys the experience as much as your wife!
Our total trip was 2250 miles over 10 day AND during two of those day we both took the two day Off Road Motorcycle Course at the BMW Performance Center. The class increased my wife's confidence immeasurably. She smiled the entire 10 day trip and is still smiling when talking about all she accomplished at the class.

Make a to-do list:

1. pull in clutch,
2. raise slightly on pegs with legs tightly on tank,
3. straighten up bike somewhat to increase turn radius,
4. if skilled and if possible, on clean spot make tight turn to compensate for going wide or consider off-roading shoulder. x the y = last resort.
5. feather rear brake

Hey man, some people have to learn the hard way. Or they have to be a warning to others.

Well he wasn't on Killboy's turf. When I said "local" I meant local to me.
He was shooting on 178 in NC.
