Default V92C Two up riding?

Hello everyone. Needing some honest opinions on two up riding on the V92C. I have not been able to purchase a TC but there are lots of C's in my area. Don't know if I should hold out for a TC. Majority of riding would still be solo. Thanks

I bought my TC knowing 80% of my riding was solo with 2up more for excursions with the wifey. What are you wanting in a bike I would think would be the question. I have always been after a bagger so the TC fit. You can sololize it if you like (seat mod, remove the backrest) and easily convert it back to 2up and IMHO the TC looks badd azz as a solo bagger with a batwing, screen or a wide grip bar and no screen. Again, I dig baggers.

Im not going to knock the 02's and the Hammer powerplant/tranny but to me it looks like if you have a choice the 03 or newer with the Freedom V92 its going to give you more bang for the buck with less hassle. Im only 10 months into mine so others may have a better opinion. That said, I wouldn't passup a good priced 02 C with the tranny fix inplace. There is just too much you can do to these bikes to personalize them.

One thing to keep in mind as another member posted, you should be able to get shipping on a bike for around 600 bucks so don't limit yourself. Check out cycletrader.com as well as ebay and craigs list. Good luck on your purchase and keep us posted!

Very nice looking TC. Missed out on one two weeks ago and I am still kicking myself. Looked at a Kingpin this afternoon and I am worried about the lower seat height in regards to my back. V92 is close to the Road King and Heritage on seat height and I think that is what I need to be comfortable. Thanks for the reply.

Thanks! I've done quite a bit since then and shes coming along nicley!

Seat height... If I am not mistaken and others can correct me if I am wrong, the Mustang seat I believe added 1" maybe a little more than the stock seat on my TC. I know I have been told if I mod the old stock down to a solo it would also be sitting a bit lower. Im 5' 9" with a 30" inseam and do not have both feet flat on the ground sitting at the light. One down, and other is about 1/2 up on the ball of my foot but not tip of the toe if that will give you an idea. I've also heard the Mustang seat is a little wider too contributing to me feeling vertically challenged on the bike at times. BUT, once rolling I love where your at and the feel for the bike is great. Your just settled in wether your feet are on the boards or the highway pegs for long leans or back and forth twisties. Very well balance ride!

Gidday, I do plenty of two up with my wife [55kg]. The bike handles better 2 up as the shock is up pretty tight and I have never adjusted it. Must make up a C spanner one day.

Thanks guys,
I really like the looks of the classic's and there are more available.
I can see were I would like the weight reduction when I am tooling
around by myself.

My 99 can handle two up easily, easier now that I lost 40 lbs. Lowered shock and no problems with me and the wife. Together we don't weigh diddly. The engine is strong enough to pull anyone around. The ride on the lowered fox shock is really quite comfortable.

I dont want to lower mine, in fact I extended the forks 4" so I can throw it around the twisties without the front pegs touching the dirt.
