Get a Silver Wing!! It has a cover to go over the passenger seat for 1-up riding.

I didn't know getting lucky had anything to do with having a passenger on your Wing. I'm with RonSena on this one.: cheeky1:

its a bit like a 2 seater sports car, normally you dont need any more seats until you buy one then you find out how impracticle they are.

i must admit though, it would be a good idea to have something that can be used for extra storage and then removed for 2 up riding

Well Sir, If BMW didn't have the problems they had the last time I checked, I may have already done that by now.

I saw one of the new BMW solo touring bikes today . Looked like a very nice bike to me.
Even the seat is different. Or maybe he had a custom seat on it. Still a sit up straight bike though, not much room to shift around, but all in all looked like a nice bike.

Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI
