i love the futura. i think i would want a different windscreen though. probably a bit higher. there's a thread on here with tahoe's staintune pipes on his (shouldn't be that far down, maybe a month ago). they look so much better than stock. the riding position is comfortable. it doesn't feel as strong as the mille i rode, but in all fairness, the mille i rode had a full akro and mapping, whereas the futura was two-up in cold weather and stock.
but, the passenger comfort (according to 5'7 trish, my fiancee), was excellent. lots of places to change position as the like. the owner's friend let his sister use it for a trackday and had no complaints other than what if memory serves me correct was a slightly vague front-end because you sit more upright on it. she did low-side it (with little damage, luggage removed), i can't remember if it was the front-end that tucked, or if she ran out of clearance. but for riding it around, it had enough of clearance and feel.
