For me, the space behind my butt is wasted. I cannot figure out how any real passenger could use the footboards? Does anybody carry a passenger on their Majesty?
The Majesty's wide tail section may make it difficult for shorter passengers to reach the footboards. E.g., my wife has a 28" (71 cm) inseam. When she tested the passenger seat, she found that only her heels rested on the footboards.RonStewart said:I cannot figure out how any real passenger could use the footboards?

Ditto on the wife thing... :wink:vivadude said:Not unless they ask for a ride. The wife will ride only if her life depends on it. It is a big win for me, because a rider to me is a liability and slows me down, especially in the curves.............
I know. The last yard of so of travel before coming to a stop, with the weight of a passenger, is tricky. If the bike is leaning the least bit, I feel a tipover coming if I don't get my feet down. So I snatch it to a stop and get my feet planted, a very jerky manuver that results in Annie's sliding forward onto my back and her helmet hitting mine. She says I need to work on my technique.Brad said:. . . what I really notice is the added weight coming to a stop. There's been many a time when I've misjudged a stop and have to do it abruptly.
