I’m on my fourth FJR, likely five next spring, and it is almost exclusively used for two up touring. When riding on my own I have a second bike that I use, presently a Kawasaki Z900RS. My wife is fairly small and light at under 9 stone, and I’m hardly ever aware especially of her presence on the back. We’ve toured Europe at least 25 times, especially Spain and Germany, clocking up 3 to 4K each time with no pillion complaints. Last year I decided to try out the new BMW RT1250. I liked it and would probably have changed, but my wife was adamant that it was uncomfortable for her. Same with the K1600.
