Coming from an 03 R1 and considering the 05 Warrior...how are they for two-up riding? I read that you can relocate the rear passenger pegs...

TIA,

They are a lot more roomy for you and passenger compared to the R1. I'm using Corbin classic solo and touring piilion for 2-up, works great.

I have a Corbin Rumble seat with Yamaha passenger peg relocation kit and 1000lbs spring. My girlfriend and I have gone on several long rides of over 200 miles and did a 600 mile overnighter. She says it's comfortable but not a touring bike. She not very big which helps, 5'3" 110lbs.

My wife likes it with the peg relocation and dual touring seat with backrest. I have an '03, but the '04 comes stock with a more comfortable passanger seat. I think the passenger pegs might also already be relocated on them...

All the low end torque of this thing makes lugging a passenger around very easy at slow speeds while doing some site seeing.

I doubt it is as comfortable as a full-fledged tourer, but it's a lot "sportier" than one.

Cool, sounds good, looks like the relocation kit is a must, figured I'd change the seat if I get one...going to the dealer again tomorrow...

Before you go to the dealer please note that the passenger pegs can be relocated but not with the stock "scud missle" exhaust muffler. Pick up a slip-on or a set of 2 into 2 straights before you lower the pegs. After you put on the exhaust of your choice you can see exactly how much you can lower the pegs. Personally, I have the BUB jughuggers and I lowered the pegs so that they are right in line with the swing arm pivot. That and a small Mapam back rest and I don't even know she's back there!

O5 rear pegs are already relocated compared to 02-03
but could still handle being lower if exhaust permits.

I have the peg relocation kit (a must) w/ISO Wings, MCEnterprises Sissybar and Barons 930lb spring. My wife likes the stock r/seat, says it's soft enough. Be sure if you have the stock spring, to crank it up quite a bit. We went with a heavier spring because we're heavier[B)][^]. If you haul some gear you will need a bigger spring anyway.

You can relocate the pegs for around$50, it lowers it 2" & brings it forward some. When I bought the Warrior after owning a V-Star, my wife looked at me and asked. "Did you buy this with me in mind. What could I say....

I heard a lot of whining back there also until I relocated the passenger pegs, a different seat, and adapted and HD Duece backrest for her. Riding is much more enjoyable these days, but about 100 miles a shot is all she can do before we have to take a break and let her stretch the legs and get some feeing back in her ass.
