What makes it uncomfortable for 2up? Widen the passenger seat, lengthen it, and add some foam. Lower the passenger pegs.

I'm pretty handy with mechanical things but a turbo is a bit beyond my skill level. The two up issue isn't just power. With both of us on the bike and my paniers packed the suspension is maxed out. I know I could modify the engine and suspension to make up for some of it but in the end I think its a lot easier to just get a bigger bike.

Right now I'm in a holding pattern. I'm going to save some money up then hunt for a new or lightly used bike that will fit the bill. I'm in no rush at this point.

I do like hearing all the different points of view.
