    Default 2 up riding

    July 21, 2021

    I just want to know if I go from one up ( me at 185lbs ) and then add a passenger who is about 180 lbs, do I have to change the tire pressure front and back from 20/28 to something else ?

    If you're asking about tire pressure, I don't think so. No.

    Thank you UtahPete. Yes, I was referring to tire pressure.

    Until my wife got her own bike, we rode two up, and I never changed the pressure at all between riding single and two up.

    When I ride two up I start hearing strange noises coming from the back of the trike. Often it sounds something like "that curve was posted at 30 and you were doing almost 40". Similar sounds often emanate from the rear at irregular intervals
    Thunder's just the noise. Lightning does the work.

    I couldn't tell you what it is like from my own personal experience, Still waiting on my passenger seat kit to come in for my f-3 that I ordered in February. And now that my Spyder is in the shop needing work it is waiting on parts to fix it. I may be waiting to sell my F-3 if neither come in soon from BRP.

    I thought it was coming through my Cardo, but even if I shut it off it’s still there. Even comes with an occasional thump to the back of the helmet.
