F4 312R 1+1 comfort 4 passenger

I know I will get ragged for asking this, but how is the riding position and comfort for the passenger?

Looks like the passenger pegs are very high- any mods that can be made to the peds or improve comfort?

thankx all.

My wife does not seem to have any problems on the MV as it is.

She, in fact, finds it more comfortable than a touring bike because, if you'll excuse me getting anatomical!!, the MV is very thin and she does not have to spread her legs as wide apart as a touring bike which means there are no cramps in her leg muscles.

The only issues that she has is that her knees hurt after a long ride (and so do mine!!), mostly because we are 50, but we are talking 600 - 700km rides.

The most important thing I have is a Ventura rack on my MV which has a padded backrest for her. I think that is why she is so comfortable.

If you look at the photo, you can just turn the bag around so that it faces the back of the bike and then becomes a fantastic backrest.

Get out there and tour........bags of fun.

Passenger comfort is a lot like women's orgasms - The short answer is "Who cares?"

The only pillion I carry is my 15yo son - he is young & flexible -my benchmark of success is that, if he is still on the back when I pull in driveway then I pat myself on the back for a job well done & know that I have avoided divorce for another day - life is really not that complicated.

My girlfriend took one ride on the back of my F4. It was not comfortable for either of us. Can it be done, yes. Anyway, I've recently bought an ST1300 for the times she wants to go for a ride. Sadly, it's such a nice bike I can see the MV sitting that much longer between rides.

Nah, the boy is sworn to secrecy - loose tongues lead to no further rides
On the note of velocity - 195 in you neck of the woods, the smooth uphill bit heading back to Ablion Park past the the recreation park. You know, left hander then straight up the hill Shhhh just between us
