    Yes... yes you do. :tb

    Allow me to translate... The n00b of few and confusing wordadge wants to know if an 640 Adventure would be the shiz for two-up riding.

    Would you care to provide him with an accurate, objective and totally unbiased answer?

    now, i know, you both understood the post. i put off posting for weeks for this very reason. maybe i should have said, thanks for nothing, or maybe i should have asked, what's it like being the cool kids in school?

    Gueche- don't trust me (I've only got 1000 miles on my new-to-me 02 LC4E) but I'm guessing there are way better bikes for 2-up. I'm thinking the F650, 1150GS, KTM 950 or a strom would be way more probable rides for ya. Having said that - I'm sure it's been done.

    I have gone for a few rides with my wife on the back of my 2002 LC4 E.
    It has plenty of power, she keeps hitting me when I go to fast. I just say I'm like a horse, I go faster when hit.

    The biggest problem is that the seat slopes forward, which is cosy, but hard on the arms on the desents as she slides forward.

    The longest ride I have done two up is about 300km return. That is on the stock seat.

    I am going to get a seat re-done to have a raised and flat saddle shape on the back to keep her in place.
