Stradale vs TV for 2up

Hi All,

Im starting to look at a 2nd bike for 2up rides (day and overnight) for me and the better half. I currently own a Brutale 990R LE - which there is no way im getting rid off, or putting the pillion pegs back on

My lovely girl (no, not the Brutale) is a little taller than me and has been blessed with a long set of legs and we have sat on the TV (not taken it for a ride tho) and because of the rider/pillion seat height difference, added with her hight difference to me - she feels she sits too high up.

The only other real option is the Stradale - which i like. I have never ridden the Stradale (or the Rivale for that matter), but do like seating position on the Ducati Hypermotard (what a cool hoon machine).

My questions are: Any comments on the Stradale if someone has a taller partner? and whats the luggage like for 2up for overnight (and longer) trips? e.g. do you need a pack rack on the rear etc. Plus any other general comments in terms of 2up riding?

Thanks

Simon

Cheers, Simon
