If he's a speed triple fan a Tiger might be more ot his liking especially for 2-up.

Then again with LC4 vibes the missus might want her own if she gets a ride on one. :)

Hey Babelfish "El G",
Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting such a vaild and well composed first thread.

IMO (in my opimion) the LC4 is not really the 2-up bike one might hope. The stock seat just plain sucks, so it's a relief as the rider to be able to stand at will. The passenger would be uncomfortable and slide forward under you. It's a little tight on room to move around for 2-up. Short distances would be tolerable but much more than quick trips is far from desireable. Boejangles may be able to build a great 2-up seat.....Check with him.

resurrection

I know this thread is long dead but I figured I'd just add my 2¢ here for shits and giggles anyway. I found my 640 ADV better than expected for a little 2-up trip to see AC/DC in New Brunswick. Good times on the Renazco seat and my girl didn't beat me too badly for taking pics while riding



it was a snug fit
