    Finally got my wife comfortable

    1. Corbin saddle

    2. Modified MFW Vario adjustable pegs 2" lower
    Many thanks to our friend who machined the piece to work with the passenger bracket.
    The pegs being 2" lower and more forward greatly helped her ( her height 5'8")

    3. Triboseat cover for the pillion.

    The seat cover helps keep my wife from sliding and reduces pressure on her knees and was less than $20.

    Looks good. I hope to check those out at Hooligans in the Hills!
    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.

    Happy wife, happy life. My wife had only one request and that was for these. It took me quite awhile to find a set I could reliably adapt, but they work and she is happy once again.

    Luck you...I'm still trying to get my wife to ride.  She has ridden pillion 1 time in 21 years of marriage.

    My wife and I have been riding together since 1974, and she's as enthusiastic a rider as I am.   Matter of fact (as I've mentioned here), SHE was the one that picked out the Trophy SE; I wasn't even considering it.

    She's also 5'8" and "short-waisted" i.e. much of her height is in her legs and her 34" inseam, so a pair of passenger pegs like that would be great for her!    I'm hoping that the folks who have brung out the lower front pegs will do the same for the passenger pegs, since I don't have any close resources that can make me a conversion for the rear ones .....
