My wife has ridden with me, but she's not a fan. And I think she liked the VTX better anyway. I didn't even bother with any passenger comfort mods on my new GT. Would be a waste of money.
She rides horses, hunters. I always tell her she would like her own ride. She has an electric two-wheel scooter she rides around the horse parks. But that's it. I used to mind it, but I don't anymore. What I once thought were lemons, I now look at as lemonade. She rides her horse on most weekends, and I ride mine. My shoulder and ribs are never sore when I go too fast. And my helmet is filled with sweet music instead of whines and moans.
The biggest drawback is that I don't do much touring. I don't want to spend my vacation time away on my own. At least not all of it anyway. We're going on a Mediterranean cruise this fall instead of a motorcycle cruise.
Wait! Did I say that was a drawback? See, lemons into lemonade.
