I'm considering a 2010 street triple R as my next bike. My last bike was a zx6-r, and I've been out of riding for a couple years. Looking to get back into it for this summer.
I love the look of the ST-R and have done a test ride on a friend's. Love the way it rides and feels...could not ask for a more fun bike.
That being said.....the lady likes to ride with me. And I like to ride with her. She's on the back maybe 25-30% of the time I ride. And the ST-R is fairly short wheel-based, with the pillion area being quite small. THAT being said....my lady is quite petite....105lbs soaking wet, with an appropriately-sized bottom to match.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience riding 2-up on this bike, and any feedback from their lady? It seems like the fact that it's a fairly upright bike would help with her comfort.
Feedback or thoughts appreciated!
ps, this is not something that would be used for long treks. tossing around the idea of also picking up a cheap cruiser for hitting the highway on. So, long-ride comfort is not too big a deal.
