I'll be dealing with this issue over the winter: I am retired; my wife retires in April. We already take frequent long distance 2-up trips; will increase the frequency of them this year. I will be 73 in January, and at 5"7" my Norge is still OK for me to handle 1-up, but is becoming difficult when fully loaded and 2-up; can't quite flat-foot it, and the weight is problematic. I'll be looking to buy a touring bike that I can comfortably handle, fully loaded, 2-up. We do have an Indian Scout, which is heavier than the Norge, but has a very low seat height (about 25"). The scout is easier for me to handle 2-up than the Norge, but it is not well suited for 2-up touring: small luggage capacity, poor wind management, uncomfortable seats. The fact that the Scout is easy for me to handle 2-up suggests to me that the bigger issue for me is seat height rather than weight. However, I still would prefer to purchase a bike capable of 2-up touring that has both low seat height and light weight. Another issue for me: I take many trips across the US great plains; prefer to take interstates in order to get to my destinations (Rocky Mt. states, west coast) in a hurry. I want a bike that can cruise all day at 80-85 mph. I don't think there is currently any bike available that meets all of these criteria; will likely have to reach some sort of compromise. I hope to test ride many bike over the next 6 months.Jon
Just occurred to me that if this thread was about women and not bikes, everybody's answers would change and most of us would be in agreement......
I thought I would lower the seat on my Eldorado
my Convert is very easy to handle at parking lot speeds
