will a zx-6r handle two people (me at 180lbs, and my wife at 130) and is it set up to handle a passenger safley? I used to have a ninja, about 8yrs ago, and left the sport, but now miss it, and my wife wants to ride with me. I am a sport bike person, so i need a sport bike, bet the best one to have two riders on it. I love the GSXR Suzuki, but it doesnt seem like it will hold a second person without breaking. Any advice appreciated!

The tail on the gixxer is not designed to carry a passenger. It'll bend, just about any sport bike will. The bike is designed to go fast, not carry extra weight. You'll see the same thing with a lot of sportbikes.

Try a Bandit, Katana or SV, I would think.

Anyone else?
