My wife (slim 5'7") but knocking on a bit now at 52 (if she reads this I'm dead) finds there is too much of a bend in her knees for a jaunt of more than 20 mins. On the Sx and she finds the pillion perch hard.  She'll happily sit for 200+ miles a day touring on my r1150gs.  One up I find the sx easily as comfy as the gs.  If your missus is short the sx might be ok but I'd fit an air hawk for her and a top box with a back rest (I run the gs with a top box when two up).

I see the problem but forum rules usually ask for a price or if you take a trade-in.

Mines an earlier model (5'4" medium build, average miles) so should fit the pillion ok. Makes a noise when doing the dishes though.

Cash either way.
