Anyone else do much two-up riding on their Capo?
I guess that it is down to the more upright riding style but I do seem to be clashing helmets with her ladyship an awful lot. We're due to do a fair long mileage soon and I'm thinking of lining the front of her helmet with sponge!
The other hassle is an annoying "head weave" at speeds over 80mph when two-up. My head gets banged from side to side by a Coreolis effect from the wind off the screen. I guess that I'll have to see if I can find a taller screen for use two-up but it is a pain given the lengthy ads on Aprilia's website about wind tunnel testing..

Noticed that some Capo owners are fitting Givi screens, they are 4" higher and if your finding the wind off the screen is hitting you this may be the answer.

Went to London 2 up - first time I've risked having the misses on board for any length of journey. I had no problems with head weave (at speeds up to the ton). With the height of the rear seat the wife complained at being hit by the wind though.

Opposite problem with my other half. She complains that the seat isn't stepped like my previous bikes so she can't see over my shoulder...

Guess that means I'm bent and your stiff if you'll excuse the french
