My wife felt like she was going to get sucked off of the back of my vegas the one time we rode. It was windy out we made it 20 miles and turned around and went home, it was uncomfortable, the backrest was to small, and there was no wind protection for her, and I had a tall windshield on it. The next weekend I traded it for my cross country, I put a backrest, the vic soft lowers on it and a klockwerx flare on it and even at 100 mph my wife was comfy and felt very safe, but she did tell me to slow down! From my experience, if you plan to do much 2up riding, get the cross bike, you won't regret it one bit.
