Women are by and large less adventurous than the blokes, it's millions of years worth of culture pressing down.

I'm afraid these things need planning. Pillion this year, then work up to a matching pair of bikes IMHO.
My wife had a 650 V Star, and I have a 1200 Sportster, and this caused problems when a suitable passing place came along, but I was OK just bimbling (love that word!) along.
Apparently I would decide to overtake at the last moment,
leaving insufficient time/space for my wife to also overtake with her smaller engine.
ANSWER TO PROBLEM: Buy her her own 1200 Sporty....
