Well... I haven't been back there myself but have taken a couple of ladies on extended rides. "Laurie" was on the back for about three hours and loved every second. "Tami" commented that it was a lot more comfy than it looks, but not as nice as the Mustang pillion on my C50 (no surprise there).

Actually, the major discomfort was for ME. Because these bikes have no backrest, in both cases the ladies were leaning right over me and my arms got really tired propping up myself AND the passenger. No more extended two-ups on this bike for me until I can rig it so the passenger can lean back further!

The bike handles great and you barely notice the extra passenger. My wife complained about her arms being tired after a short ride. The fact that there is no backrest on the bike prevents the hard take offs and giving the bike what it wants. Gotta keep the wifey on the bike though! haha

I prefer to fly solo, but there are any number of ladies I wouldn't mind having squeezing up against my back. I think my arms could take the pressure.

my wife sed it was OK. but i think that she needs a back rest because she sed that when i gassed on it she would slide back. that puts pull on me and with no back rest she leans on me too much. so to keep the pain down for both of us she needs a back rest for any long rides. and i have to remember not to goose it with her on the back so not to slide her off and that would be a lot of pain for me if I did that.

Two up, the 109 is good. The seating position for both parties is very comfortable and upright... However,,,, a sissy bar would make things even better!

The seat is comfortable for my wife and the brakes are good for boob jaming :D
I have had my passenger seat modified to fit a Sissybar.
It's in the mail back to me so I'll post a pic if anyone is interested.
He built it how I asked so hopefully is OK

Would like pics as well as how much it cost and where it was done? Did you have it done there in Australia?
