Once again thanks,do you use the Corbin seat on your faired CTX ?,it looks as though that adds a bit more height hence legroom for the passenger.No, quite the contrary. My faired version with saddlebags and rear box is fairly comfortable for passengers up to 5'6 in height. I've done 300 - 400 mile rides with a passenger without any problems. The only issue I experienced with a taller passenger (5'8) had to do with the peg placement on long rides. With her longer legs, she tended to sit more on her tailbone. Adding additional, firmer padding helped and a custom dual seat would have cured the problem all together.
The bike I referenced in the early post that none of my passengers want to ride is a naked model with a Radiant exhaust tip installed. The tip ends just under with the rear passenger peg. Exhaust heat and fumes tend to rise up when stopped and felt heat gets fairly severe when riding at hwy. speeds. All complain about how bad their clothes smell.when ever they go on anything more than a short hop. Its also very loud since the pipe ends just under them. Reinstalling the OEM muffler would cure the problem but its owner prefers the Radiant's sound and no ones crazy enough to ride double with him anyways.
You know i'm even getting fed up up with myself banging on about passenger pegs,but when we change our present bike it will be our last & will have to see out our biking days(which i hope are many),so i really need to be sure the bike fits us.
