Feedback is much appreciated from those who have tried it, who make it work regularly, or who wouldn't go there period!
My wife has ridden with me on my K8 numerous times for 5-6 hour rides. Usually run with a tankbag and a Wolfman Beta behind her on an SW-Motech rack. Decent comfort 2-up; she has fallen asleep many times!
It's even good for 2-up camping...!
