Since i'm a new rider, I won't be taking a passenger until i feel very confident in my own riding skills....but eventually i would like to give friends a ride here and there.
I'm just curious if any of you have noticed any issues with a passenger on the fury vs. any other cycle.... and is the sissy bar a necessity, or just a convenience?

any suggestions are appreciated.

This is not a bike set up for passengers. Taking someone short distances around town is probably fine, but anything longer than that, like a few hundred miles on the highway will probably be an endurance trial.

I've been taking my wife with me since I bought mine. Although she's not real happy with the rear seat I have not had any issues with her being on the back. The sissy bar would be nice for her I don't have one yet but do plan on getting one.

I kept my VTX for the purpose of riding two up, I have the Ultimate X seats on it and both myself and a passenger can ride all day on that.
I bought the Fury for me! It will become a solo rider shortly, even the foot pegs are coming off.

I believe I read somewhere the max weight capacity for the Fury was around 325lbs not for sure. My wife wont get on the back until I get the back rest which has anyone installed it themselves and how hard is it to install.

I installed mine. It wasn't hard at all. Make sure you have some extra washers. I used them under the bracket, so it wouldn't rub on the fender. As an extra precaution, I added neoprene washers under the bracket to be sure it wouldn't leave any marks.

Back rest is a piece of cake to install, good directions for once, and since it is Hondaline, the places to drill are all marked well.

I have ridden a couple of female friends and they have not complained. But just around town. After a 100 miles the seat gets to me so I am sure they would have a problem with extended trips.
