    Playing with putting a passenger seat on the dub

    I’m in Nicaragua and it’s hard to find anything here but a man totaled his 2008 Royal Star passing through my town and I got the back seat off it. Just trying to figure out how to anchor it down. Wife is thrilled about how better it will feel when we do 200 mile runs. What do y’all think?

    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    If this verse is true (and it is) then what does it say about Christ’s love? He died for us not when we were His friends but when we were His enemies.

    Here is what I’m thinking. I’m going to put snaps on the leather strap to hold it down tight and also remove it when I need to.

    Wow..it always surprises me to see a stock 2015 with few mods. It's been a while since mine looked like that.

    I'm not sure if passenger weight that far back is a good idea. The sub frame has a low weight rating. If you go through with it avoid bumps.

    Where the passenger seat is positioned now is where she usually sits. We put a neck pillow on the rack. We ride 60-65mph for 100 miles only stopping once, we ride off road trails from 2200 up to 8500 ft, crossing rivers, jungle and everything in between. Rides good, well balanced and only a few willies up very steep trails.
