Thinking HD

I dont know enough about the models the motor company make. Ive tried a bunch (883, 1200, Dyna Low Bob and full dresser) I liked the 1200 but getting off of that bike and back onto my 77 BMWs was eye opening... The 34 yr old BMW was comfortable where as the 1200 would lay waste to my back in about an hour.

Wifey wants to ride pillion after some years off a bike. So comfort back there a must.
I need to comute and endure some pretty harsh dirt roads. Panniers a must.
I also like to ride the twisties (after 2-3 slab ride to get there)
So a small fairing would be cool.

I was thinking Sporty 1200 with a decent seat and panniers with mids. But would a bigger model already laid out with that kit be better (mainly for passenger)?
Suspension has to able to cope with shit roads as well..

Any tips...?
