Have you considered "his and hers"? If she is interested in bikes, why not ride her own? Although some are way better than others, I am not sure of any sportbike thats "good" for a passenger. I suspect that at 6'-4" you might get a little crowded on most of them except maybe the Honda XX or Hayabusa, neither of which is a beginner bike and leaves the passenger with their legs up somewhere near their ears. Bikes for passengers are kinda' the realm of the Gold Wing or maybe the ST-1100 or Concourse if you have any hopes of real comfort for rider and passenger. Why not sign up both of you for the MSF course and see how it goes from there? They furnish the bikes, too. Minimal cost to feel it out. Just another way to look at it, maybe.
Edit: I see Rossco 929 was posting the same thought. Sorry for the duplication.
