I took a pillion to Brighton on Sunday. I've had people on the back before but this was the first time I've done a proper distance, and the first time I've been up to speed. The FZ6 handled it fine (adjusted the pre-load and tyres) but it was a bit rough for 'im on the back.
When MCN review bikes they never seem to have any comments from a pillion, but it would be handy to know. I mean, it's a given with something like the BMW LT or Pan European that it's gonna be good for someone on the back. But what would be best out of the Hyabusa, FVR1200, ZZR1400 and K1300? Or how about the Bandit 1250, Yamaha FZ1 Fazer or CB1000? How do they handle with twice the weight?
