po-po 5.0, If you're looking for a sportbike, you'll have to go with a used early model that was pillion friendly. The Triumph D955is aren't bad at all to ride with a pillion and have a decent sized pillion saddle. Otherwise you're looking at sport tourers and nakeds. A grab handle/rail for the S3 is available.

So unless you have another outlet.
Preach it!

My fiance doesn't have a problem on the 1000RR, but then again she is a "00" so she fits anywhere. She actually sat on my Seat cowl and asked why is your seat so hard with out breaking it. I told her because you took the normal seat. i guess it depends on the girl. but back in the days of single times. not one person complained about the back seat of my R6.

and if she does "want/have" to ride with you then get her a corbin seat or some other custom seat.

1340high, A couple of years ago I was driving to the Woodlands for a concert. There was a chick riding the fender of a H-D bobber...must've been one of a fender WRT strength! Where there's a will, there's a way.

I was told the same thing when I bought my busa.......still bought it and put a bunch of miles on it without issue. Wife liked it much better than the litre bikes.......so the busa had to go.

No more passenger complaints..........no more passengers.

Had a buddy with one. I couldn't wrap my head around the linked brakes. Motor sounds sick though.

I have a trackturd so there are other outlets. A streetbike would be purchased primarily for 2 up rides, and the odd farting around town. Therefore, passenger comfort actually is an issue.

CBR1100XX--a good commuter. Can wail on it when you want to. Can cruise sedately when you want to. Good for weekend two up trips. Plenty of power with one or two people.

I might be biased.

The ZX-12/14 have decent sized seats, but still sit higher than the driver..

Bikes are plenty sporty tho..

That seat looks pretty similar to all other seats from that same era. I'd rather get a gix 1k cuz then at least I know the gearbox isn't junk, and I know how to fix them.

i got a busa because my wife liked the bigger back seat. I also mounted a backrest to the grab bar but only forr the times that she rides with me, other than that the hump is on it. if you are looking for passenger comfort since you already have a trackbike, a 1000 supersport is not the way to go
