I have a 13 F6B standard.
The dealer added a passenger backrest at no cost when I took delivery.
A bracket was added to raise the backrest up and it hits my wife's back in the correct spot.
I guess the wife's comfort that Dave spoke of is a matter of the wife.
My wife (when she does ride) has no issues whatsoever.
She sits on an Airhawk sometimes on long rides, but mostly just the stock seat.
I have the rear suspension set at 18 clicks and that seems fine.
I had her on a full wing and she did not like feeling that she was sandwiched between me and the trunk.
The F6B gives her more room even though I have a rider backrest installed.
The F6B also sets you back slightly as the rider compared to a full wing.
As far as cruise is concerned, I had it on several bikes prior to my F6B.
I could care less about having cruise.
I do from 400-600 mile turn around day rides consistantly and very seldom have I thought that I need cruise.
The installation of a Kaoko has been good enough for my needs.
Looks are a personal preference.
I bought the F6B because I thought it looked better than a full wing.
Don't beat me up here, but I myself do not like anything about a full wing.
The F6B is perfect for me.
Resale was not an issue for me either.
I plan on keeping the B for a long time.
The fact that you are getting it at that price should take any resale worry out of it.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
