TwoUp and why it matters. http://www.bluepantsmedia.com/blog/2017/9/twoup-and-why-it-matters Sitting on the back of a bullet takes training and skill, but is something that can be done with just a bit of professional coaching.  At Apex Trackdays, TwoUp rides are offered by some of the best riders to provide a safe and exciting experience.  Notice here how the rider on the back knows to look and lean through the turn.  This allows for much faster and stable corner speeds.
