for those 2 up riders

About to purchase the new speed triple. I was wondering if it will be comfortable for my fiancÚ. I do like the single seat piece on the speed triple and the riding position should make it easy for her in my opinion.

Does the heat from stock exhaust bother the legs for the pillion?

Thanks for your inputs!

My wife is 5"8 and she can go about an hour on the stock seat then we need to stop. I have heard of others purchasing the GSXR pegs that are a bit lower than stock.."I have an 08"

All in all the more she rides the more she gets used to it....She says its alot better to ride on the back than my Duc monster.

No heat from the pipe but she will need to pay attention. My wife got bit pretty bad trying to get her leg across once. I think she learned her lesson.. has not happened since.

cant use the gsxr pegs if you are running a high mount exhaust.

my gf loves to ride on the back on mine. id suggest a low mount exhaust though to help with heat.

Never had any problems or complaints here either, longest we did at one time so far was about 70 miles.

I'm 6'1" 235 and my wife is 5'4" 110. She claimed the dual exhaust was burning her so I viewed it as an excuse to justify buying the Comp Werkes. It's an awesome bike but for 2 up and our combined weight it gets a little rough.

My wife enjoys shorter trips on the back, but after an hour she's ready to walk. It's kind of the median between a rocket and touring bike, but def closer to a rocket for the back seat.

My wife wanted to hope on to see how she fit on my bike so she went to hope on with shorts on,burnt her inner thigh (not riding just sitting in shorts). She didn't care much for that. Since I have added a low arrow so no trouble that way. Melisa can stand about an hour before needing to get off and walk around for a bit. She's 5'7" and about the best pile on you could have don't even know she is back there.

All the ones I have put on the back of mine say the same thing. A little better than a sport bike/race replica but pretty similar. Fun tid bit of info, the .. "Between the legs bump" .. on the back seat doesn't actually do anything. Had a few excited to see if it added anything to the experience. All said they couldn't even tell the bump was there when riding.
