    My wife has ridden on the back of my TW in national parks and in the hills around our home. We’ve ridden as many as 128 miles in one day. To make if difficult for her to fall off the back, I installed a rack and strapped on a soft tool bag, with tools that are wrapped in rags. She prefers the Road King and even the Dyna, but they don’t fit in the back of my pickup.

    I'm also in the market for a rear rack and I'm wondering what racks besides Cycleracks (if any) can double as passenger grab bars.



    Thanks!
    Happy riding
    I'm not sure anything can be done to make the TW more "enjoyable" when riding 2-up. I think the main problem is that it's just uncomfortable. When riding solo I stand up a lot but standing up with a passenger is basically putting your butt in their face. I do ride 2-up a lot with my girlfriend and don't stand up very often for that reason, but we usually keep the ride to about 3 hours or less (on the CB500 it's less of a problem). I do have a "Cyclerack" and can't comment about other racks.

    I bought the Tusk rack and really like it. If you get the tusk, just be careful of cross threading exhaust bolt when installing. Instructions warn you about it and i had a little trouble with it but I do like the rack. A little cheaper then cycle rack. Good quality imo.
