I need help with my wife
« on: October 01, 2013, 07:28:30 PM »
We have a bmw k1200lt now that I would like to trade for a new Trophy that I test road today.  The problem is that my wife only thinks about the comfort of the k1200Lt.
How can we make the passenger seat as comfortable as our lt.
I like the Trophy, but got to make her happy.

Welcome to e Forum2up :400: have you given your wife a test ride?  That should convince her.  As an alternative TickyBoo on this forum is a great pillion advocate

I certainly am  :046:  She needs a test ride for sure.  Obviously I can't comment on your current bike as I've never been a pilly on one, but I do LOVE the Trophy, its comfier than my sofa at home!!!

We've previously toured on Goldwings GL1200 & GL1500, Pan European ST1300, BMWs R11550RT, R1200RT and K1200LT before the Trophy. We're just back from a 3800km round trip to Rimini, Italy and the unsolicited view from my wife was that the Trophy was the most comfortable bike for her - by far!

Really all you need to do is take her for a test ride and she will see for herself....

If she doesn't.... A bullet to the head and a spot of digging under the patio and just go for the Trophy anyway!

Only joking..... Don't bury her under the patio, the cops will always check there first!

Some forum members have a sick sense of humour. Cropbiker do you have any idea who that could be? :008:

My wife is thrilled with the pillion seat!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
