Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

Alejandro Schröeder /

I'm just curious to know the top average speed on these things when doubled up.

I go about 25-30 with my gf behind. I have motobecane all stock except the carb.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

depends on the bike. most variated bikes barely lose any steam with doubles. V1s are really good doubles engines too. an E50 will cry its eyes out if you load it up with 2 people.

Even a bus can tell when another passenger is aboard. Yep, it makes a big difference, braking as well.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

downhill braking will be greatly impaired.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

My bravo (variated) loses a little low end but top end is pretty much the same. E50 with Athena reed kit gets hot pretty fast. I'm a 140 lb girly man and my girl is 110, so together we add up to one fat person

interesting, Yea i weigh 170 and my girl is 110 and it starts slow as hell but it picks up to a decent speed. Not variated either

If anyone hops on my moped while i'm riding i will break their nose with my helmet. I am not geared or timed for anything but my scronny ass. My set up is for me. you wanna come alone get your own fucking moped bitch.

You're a fucking idiot. I'll ride anyone dubs because dubs on a moped are fucking awesome. I'll even ride tripps. Speed is overrated, it's all about capacity now a days. You're gonna start seeing many bikes built to ride three soon.

i rode with my lady just in the parking lot cause she doesnt have a helmet yet.

This is a pic of me and my buddy riding 2-up. I have the eyepatch...YAR!!!

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

Nope and no regrets.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

Rides fast and pulls hard with dubs. Also bends axles pretty bad.

stock v1 carried me 160 and my buddy 120 up to 25 and stayed steady. Just took quite a bit to get there and dropped to about 15 on a hill.

I still can't see how people ride dubs, I have a long seat and if there is someone else on it my nuts get crushed by the front of the seat on any and all small bumps

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

not a moped...

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

I used to ride dubs on my old 50v when I was light! about 145, "buddys" were about 100-130...it did ok. Now I' am 200lbs, have to stick to the lighter "buddys" :) The only bike I know that handled 2 well was the 50v. Puchs suck for it, my Honda has the power, but not the frame or seat for it. Has my eye on a buddy for my long seat, will report in on how it does. Not expecting much, she is the right size, me, not so much. :) Braking is VERY compromised, make sure brakes are as good as you can get them. Tires too. Told vespa grande is good for this, never had one though.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

you just need to make sure she's a spinner

I am 235 and my buddy is 175. Thats 410 total. I didnt notice a real drop in acceleration on my kitted hobbit and i didnt notice any real decreased stopping power with the disc break. We only hit 25 mph, so i cannot say about top speed, but i had plenty of throttle left.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

if it doesn't you should probably gear up...

How UB rolls.

Re: Does your ride go a lot slower with a buddy?

My rides are normally faster with a friend. Time flies while you're having fun!
