    Lovely bike mate.
    I've had the same problem trying to accommodate the wife on the bike.
    I've just taken the seat to a upholsterer to add foam and widen the rear le Pena seat.
    I'm hoping this will do the trick, if not I suggested she might want to get her own bike after passing her test and from the look she gave me suggested that was a very stupid suggestion !

    Good point, but unsure sissy bar would fit the look of a cage racer styles HD

    I suggested to mine that she might try losing a bit of her padding rather than adding it to the seat.

    She's got a hell of a right-hook

    I like the XL1200CX Roadster too, mind you I've always had a soft spot for the Cafe Racer styling ever since I saw the Moto Guzzi 850 Le Mans in 1976 and the H-D XLCR1000 in 1977. Both classics that were above my budget then and now, The original Le Mans is now fetching £18K plus and the XLCR has an asking price of £20K plus.

    I agree but I'd draw the line at putting something on my bike that didn't suit it. I'd rather take the pain

    The XLCR was always a beautiful bike. Some of its styling has stood the test of time and is reminiscent in some later models. Not generally a fan of the comfort factors on a cafe racer, but the styling can look good.
