You could have just told him to go to the gym and a RC-51 would be like a wing.

Looks like they were double-escaped when being put in for a day and then the data got fixed.

I know you said sportbike, but try an FZ1 or sv1000. They're fast, have more comfortable seating positions (especially the FZ1, although the sv1000 has the better motor), and the passenger won't end up lying on your back when she's scared. There are better ways to do pushups.



You can get a givi or some other kind of hard luggage on the back to give your passenger something to lean against. If you need the full-faired look to feel like you've got a sportbike you can get fairings for an FZ1. The sv by default has a belly pan to give the same feel.

Screw that HTML BS. If you can't copy/paste you shouldn't be using a computer.

Really beating a dead horse here... so here's my 2 cents: VFR, Triumph Sprint ST, Bandit 1200, or if you're willing to break of the literal sportbike mode, sit up more on a ZRX1200R, old ZX-0R (with better seat), Breva 1100, new Tiger or V-strom 1000.



If it's under 200 miles... you can most sportbikes work for 2-up. That's of course assuming your passenger "really" loves you... otherwise, if it's a date, that'll kill it. Over extended miles, it's really being bent over that fatigues both you and your passenger on clip-on bike, so opting for a "sport-tourer" with a more upright position would be a better fit for long rides.

I'm not - have you seen KPaul?



(that's a rhetorical question - NOBODY can see someone who doesn't exist)

Re: Choose a sport tourer instead
 
That comforts me greatly that you affirm his opinion.

i know you said sportbike...perhaps sportster 1200 would fit the bill...

oh and to qualify that...makes as much sense as suggesting a dual purpose or whatever it was someone did... kid ask's for a sportbike recommendation and he gets the usual nonsportbike answers
