Totally agree. I traded my Honda ST1300 for my Versys, 3 years and 27k miles ago, best decision I ever made-bike wise.
My wife hated the ST, it had a wobble around 55, even when it wasn't windy. In the wind it was horrific, so bad after one trip down Vancouver Island, she refused to sit on it ever again.
I've done numerous multi-thousand trips on the V, with a sheep skin and my Airhawk, its the most comfortable bike I've owned. The long range, (200miles or so), the minimal heat in traffic on hot days ( I ride a lot in SoCal in the winter), plus the way it handles in the twisties, it can't be beaten.
Two up performance is great, even in the Rockies over the highest passes, there is plenty of power with 2 people and motel luggage.
