Hi all

Well, I've finally made a jump from my trusty road only steed to a start of the dream of ADV riding ('13 F800GS). looking forward to figuring out this whole new world and meeting those who've gone before me (to the place's I'm sure I'll want to go).

As I trawl through the forum any kind-hearted member want to point me to some resources (before I find them) on riding dirt 2-up (i.e. with pillion)? :D

Hope to meet a few of you soon,

Hi Carl

Dirt 2-up is no different to 1-up.  The best advice I can give re dirt riding is to do some of the club training usually on the last weekend of the month.  And do a country Trax intro to offroad training day.  Then ride - the club has dirt rides for beginners where there is lots of help and advice, and the pace and distance is not too much.

Welcome to the forum.
