I tried the optional touring passenger pillion for my wife first, but she slid foward into her jeans all the time since that pad tilts a little forward & the rear pegs are so high & close she could'nt push back easily. Then the Sundowner seat was a great improvement to both her seat & mine. The rear pad on the Sundowner slopes slightly rearward so her wedgy is gone, & she can actually fall asleep on the back now on a long ride. Also consider rear peg extensions to get her legs stretched forward & a little bit wider. I used KuryAkin (sp?) extensions but others in this forum like some different extensions even better. The Sundowner is worth it, especially for the passenger, & I really like the looks too.
