we (me and wife) leaving kids for 10 days with her mother and on August 14 leaving for Norway (from Belgium). Two up on DR.
Since for many years till last year I was touring on fast naked bikes and sportbikes and sometime took wife for ride and since "our" first bike was VT250F and we did a bit of touring she finds DR VERY comfortable, believe it or not
And certainly it is comfortable for me (we both short, and my wife only 46 kg) - so when we did 400 km non-stop test drive on DR two-up my Doctor kinda did not really notice additional passenger

I liked 800GS too, but it by far not as tough as DR when you drop it (I am offroad beginner) or hit log etc. and it's just a bit too heavy (heavier than DR with aftermarket exhaust actually). But I do believe Beemer is and will be huge success for long time, it is very smart bike indeed!
