I've done Canada and back (mostly paved), lots of Baja (mostly dirt) and Panama (fair amount of dirt) two-up on a 1200GS. The bike was fine for that. Also did Alaska on a 650 Dakar. That sucked two-up.

It is really about your passenger being comfortable. If they're not, you won't be either.
I've done all of USA and central America (plus Colombia/Ecuador) two-up on a DL650. It's more than sufficient.

MJS has it right- passenger comfort is key.
