I had a 1989 Transalp and tried it 2 up, it was fair but lacked power. The suspension is a little soft for 2 people, and that left the front end to light for my preference. I sold it and bought a Triumph 800XC, and it works great 2up, it is everything the Transalp wasn't and more. The suspension is adjustable easily and the motor is silky smooth. My wife and I have rode as far as 500 miles in a day, but try to keep it at 350 -400 so we can stop and see the sites. I think the Transalp is a great bike but the availbility of easily availble parts is a drawback. I love the Triumph and would never go back to a Transalp. Rod
