I'd like something sportier for the wife and myself to enjoy, but I don't think the dedicated sport-tourers (c14, fjr, sprint gt) are the ticket. 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...!

Walk a mile in another mans shoes...then you'll be a mile away with a new pair of shoes!
