For any lengthy riding the pillion always chooses the bike. :001:

My (now) wife rode on the back of my Ducati 851 back in the day.  She had never been on a motorcycle before and after two rides announced she hated it and would NOT ride on the back of a motorcycle!  So she borrowed a 650 Yammie from a friend to learn on, took the test and has owned her own bikes ever since.  She loves riding but if her bike broke down, she'd probably walk home before she'd get on the back of one!  :027:

Even though my wife is diminutive (4'10 & 105 lbs) riding is cramped as far as the foot pegs go.

OTOH I was surprised that power & suspension didn't seem to notice the passenger.

The solution is to have more than one bike for each situation.

Like Goldilocks says, "This one is just right".

I love the 900 as an urban assault vehicle. Out on the highway itís not...,, blah blah blah.
My other bike is a goldwing, a highway assault vehicle that my wife enjoys.
