Can anyone tell me about riding someone on a 1+1? I was looking at buying one, but didn't know how comfortable it would be for a passenger. Thanks

Pure Hell must be the simplest answer

good thing is, my wife has never been on the back of a bike except the MV, so luckily she doesnt know how comfortable some pilion bikes can be
she never complains either, and she is encouraging me to go for a 312 guess im real glad we met

My wife is never complaining... She loves it!
In fact she wrote about it: http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2186

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

the pillion seat is not angled up as on some jap sports bikes which makes a big difference to a pillions weight distribution therefore comfort. plus easier to get out of the wind blast for them.my wife and I managed a 3k mile trip around europe with large throwover panniers slung over the pillion seat and a tent and 2 foam roll up mats behind her with no problems.

Yep, no problems at all. My wife actually says that it is the most comfortable bike that she has ever been on.

I must admit that I spoil her by putting on the Ventura rack, with the optional padded backrest, and she sits like a queen!! I think she is comfortable because the pillion area is very narrow, and if you'll pardon the expression, she does not have to spread her legs as wide apart as on other bikes, which means she does not get those horrible cramps in her sides.

We have regularly done 600km+ two-up rides without being anymore sore than on any other bike. I say go for it,
