Gueche- don't trust me (I've only got 1000 miles on my new-to-me 02 LC4E) but I'm guessing there are way better bikes for 2-up. I'm thinking the F650, 1150GS, KTM 950 or a strom would be way more probable rides for ya. Having said that - I'm sure it's been done.

I have gone for a few rides with my wife on the back of my 2002 LC4 E.
It has plenty of power, she keeps hitting me when I go to fast. I just say I'm like a horse, I go faster when hit.

The biggest problem is that the seat slopes forward, which is cosy, but hard on the arms on the desents as she slides forward.

The longest ride I have done two up is about 300km return. That is on the stock seat.

I am going to get a seat re-done to have a raised and flat saddle shape on the back to keep her in place.

Isn't the Speed 3 a Triumph street bike? That would be my guess. Like you said Greg, he should put a little more definition in his post.

Good guess, but I've cracked the the El Groucho code:
