My wife has ridden many miles with me on our S. She finds if very comfortable. Except for the lack of a backrest--which is a minor issue for her--it is more comfortable than our K1200RS. She can see straight ahead on the S as well as see the mirrors and the instruments. All this makes the ride much more enjoyable than on the KRS. She says buffeting is not a problem.Giel said:I would like to have feedback for pillion riders on this bike regarding comfort & wind buffeting.
