A couple of questions:
- Where abouts in the UK is the bike (appologies if you mention that and I've missed it)?
- How suitable is the bike for 2-up riding with those paniers fitted? Is there still room for the pillion's legs without being uncomfortable?

Hi there the bike is in Stourbridge west midlands. The bike is absolutely fine for two up with the paniers on the missus and I go out regularly and she is 5'11" and I am 6'2". (so we aren't exactly small)

Hope this helps Tom
