Hello! I have been riding my 2004 sv650S for a year, and this morning my wife told me she wants to go on a long trip with me (Long meaning a 600 KM trip through the mountains and back, 1200 KM total). I have never ridden with a passenger, so I think we will start with some smaller trips and work our way up. Now, I have some questions about my bikes capability. Can the rear shock handle the load? I weight 200 lbs, my wife weighs 120 lbs, and our gear would not exeed 50 lbs. I likely would have to max out the preload, but would it work? Also, is there any way to fit a sissy bar or backrest for my passenger? I couldn't find any info on that. Granted, it would look ridiculous but I want my wife to be able to rest her back a little if we are planning on going on long trips. Last thing, I find the front to be woefully undersprung even for my weight, the brake dive on a hard stop is intense. What solution would you recommend for this issue? Any other thoughts that could be helpful? Thank you for any help you can give.
