I just joined this community after I just bought my first bike. A 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R. I am needing a rear seat so my wife can ride with me.

I honestly can not think of a worse first bike to learn how to ride with a pillion. It’s a track bike with lights. The very first thing I did to my 675 when I brought it home was to remove the rear pegs and put a rear cowl on it so that I would NEVER be tempted to have a passenger on the bike.

So do you still have the rear seat you removed

It won’t fit your bike.

I’ll say this again - the 675 is a track bike with lights. The suspension, geometry and ergos make it a terrible choice for carrying a passenger.

You are coming across as either a troll or a really clueless new rider. In the case of the former - whatever. In the case of the latter - don’t hurt yourself or your passenger because you are going to ride way beyond your limits/skill set.

Enjoy the bike for what it is.

I appreciate your advice as you have been riding these bikes longer than I have. And yes you are right it is uncomfortable but I bought the bike and I’m just trying to make best with what I have. I have the exact same bike as you so why wouldn’t your rear seat fit?

Your bike is 2013 model. Mine is from 2012. Do some research and you’ll understand why that matters.

Re: riding with a passenger. The “Shop Manual” with Ari Henning on Revzilla TV does a great job laying it out. About 4:45 he explains why a sportbike probably isn’t the best choice - particularly for your passenger.
