Default Just wondering...

I really like the Buell CityX, not exactly sure why, just do. Anyways, am i seeing things or is it really as small as it looks? It looks like a tiny bike, very short. Any trouble riding two up on one? (the seat looks sort of... short.)

Having sat on a few, but not yet ridden a CityX, I'd have to say probably not any more than your typical sportbike - i.e. it can be done, but the Pillion probably won't be comfortable unless she's 4' 9-1/2" and 103lbs soaking wet.........

I have an XB9S with a CityX seat.

Short answer: Yes, especially if the person steering the bike is of normal size/stature and not an elf.

The bike is a heck of a lot of fun without a passenger, though.
