For just solo commuting, a 500 would probably do the trick. But since the two of them want to do some occasional weekend &#8220;two-upping", it just isn&#8217;t gonna work out. A 750 will work, but if his wife is 5&prime;7&Prime; and weighs 210 lbs, then she&#8217;s got some rear-end issues. Get a cruiser-class bike in the 1100-1500 range, but a wide comfy seat on the back with a backrest, and she won&#8217;t be pounding the back of his helmet complaining about butt pain. Oh, and if they plan to ride together to places, then they&#8217;re going to need saddlebags, because, everybody always needs saddlebags in those cases. Yahama V-Star 1100 Honda Sabre 1100 Suzuki Boulevard 1500 All great choices.

For just solo commuting, a 500 would probably do the trick. But since the two of them want to do some occasional weekend “two-upping", it just isn’t gonna work out.

A 750 will work, but if his wife is 5′7″ and weighs 210 lbs, then she’s got some rear-end issues. Get a cruiser-class bike in the 1100-1500 range, but a wide comfy seat on the back with a backrest, and she won’t be pounding the back of his helmet complaining about butt pain.

Oh, and if they plan to ride together to places, then they’re going to need saddlebags, because, everybody always needs saddlebags in those cases.

Yahama V-Star 1100
Honda Sabre 1100
Suzuki Boulevard 1500

All great choices.

How about an exercise bike? If you plan on riding two up, anything under 1000 is going to be disapointing. A 750 would be fine for you to commute with, but the two up weekend ride is going to suck.

If you want a sport tourer consider a Honda VFR, or Yamaha FJR1300. The Suzuki bandits have been around forever and you could maybe pick up a 1200 for cheap, people swear by that for daily commuting + 2-up touring. It&#8217;s not cutting edge but they&#8217;re solid and well supported
