I've never rode one but it seems it would be difficult to get the balance of two people right. Always thought they were funny.

No pretty nuts. That thing looks like a blast. Could you take your lady friend on it or did you need a buddy. I find it best when doing anything with skill to leave out the wife. Not to say she doesn't have skills, there just not useful.

I had that built specifically for my wife and me. We had some gnarly trails in Australia, where you ride along a technical ridge above the ocean. Then we'd bomb down a steep hill at about 60Km/h, and into town for morning coffee.

Good times.

That was when I lived in Australia, and was married to an Aussie. Now I live in Utah, and am no longer married to an Aussie. I sold the tandem too.

That's right your in Utah. New Zion. Awesome. Is your soon to be a Mormon? Do you just travel around getting married bicycling all willy nilly.

Were there nipples? And what does that even mean? LDS partying is like going to a keger and finding out it's rootbeer. Is it good, sure, could it be better, well they do make real beer. I'm sorry that's not an apt analogy because you can't get real beer.

Nice cake...

I have done a tandem, it's just like riding a regular bike-as I am the stoker I assume it is the same! It is hard going up very steep hills. Kicks your butt just like a solo bike can. My captain is a very muscular guy, so if it is hard for him, you just know it is a killer hill. Those not fun at all.

Have done two double century rides on it, it is great as I can take pictures from the back!

Now that's not soooo bad. It's not like she stopped peddaling! Oh-and I was 'supposed' to be taking pictures-was for the charity ride. :D ( I just had to warn him that I was getting out the camera, so he was prepared to deal with my wiggling a bit)
