My wife raves about it, had a ZX14 before, she was never really comfy on it, she loved the comfort of the Blackbird, but said the GTR is the ultimate pillon bike. She sits much closer to me, feels more part of the ride.

My wife took her first ride today , every thing was fine apart from not being able to find the grab bars , she thinks they are back too far . Rear foot pegs are fine and the seat is comfy !

Ok! I can now report on my other halfs findings regarding the pillion position.
She is 5'0 and of slight build. Seat was quite comfortable and no complaints after 100mile stint in the saddle. Smooth ride..(but then she always says that, :rolleyes ) No real wind, turbulance and buffetting issues. Footpegs were the biggest issue. Too high, making legs bend too much and knees ache after only a short while. More remaniscent of a sportsbike than a tourer. Don't find the need to have rubber footpegs but I am definately going to sort some footpeg extensions similar to Jerry's but using the existing pegs. Other than that at one stage during the first trip she even though it was better than the K1200LT!!!!!.
