My wife has bad knees, probably needs one replaced now, the other in several years, although the doctors like to put that off as long as possible.

My previous bike was a Royal Star, which she rarely accompanied me on, since it was hard for her to get on, and she felt her knee was "exposed" while riding. So I bought an F800 ST, preferring the lighter weight. If she's not going with me, I might as well ride what's most comfortable for me, right?

I've been wondering if a sidecar might be easier for her to get into, as well as the enclosure making her feel less exposed.

I'm curious what experience some of you have had.
