So far the wife and I have only been able to do a few short trips of 300 miles or less, but I've put a bit over 3000 miles on the bike since I bought it last October. But in June we have a wedding to go to in Billings, so we'll head over by way of Alpine WY and Yellowstone, then come back over the Beartooth Hwy, up through northern Idaho and over to Walla Walla for some wine tasting, then head back home to Boise. The route we have planned will be about 2100 miles over 10 days and looks to be some awesome riding. June can't get here soon enough.
Every day is a good day for a bike ride. Some days are just better than others.

Well my wife just arrived from Russia 5 months ago. I took her for her first ride ever on a bike and on my 82 GL 1100. She loved it! Im gonna show her around Alberta on the wing. Iam a little concerned about the bike capacity weight though. Manual says max 395 rider passenger and cargo. Well Iam 280 and she 115lbs. Guess I should lose weight ? Lol....

You're fine if you're not carrying cargo! :)

I'd be more worried about publicly mentioning your wife's weight (even though she weighs next to nothing!). My wife is, uh, in the same range as yours, but I'm not dumb enough to mention the number here. She reads this stuff occasionally. :)
