  • So the passenger is actually supposed to lean with the rider? I thought it was better if they pretend to be a stack of bricks (which neither lean nor counter lean) as their leaning constantly makes the rider have to react and readjust?

  • First ride as a passenger today. We discussed some basic communication taps first, and upon my tap to signify I was ready, he opened the bike up. No sissy bar and I thought I was slipping off the back. I couldn’t do the pat to signify that it was too much for me, and I prayed hard .... I’m not even religious. I made it home safe and it was both exhilarating and a little scary at times. Worst part is that I’ve caught the motorcycle bug, damn I’m ready to get my own and take the test.

  • A good passenger should also take care to be fairly fit. It greatly helps when they can support some of their weight on the tank when braking. Don´t lie on the topic of your weight. Doing so might mean that you have to find an alternative means of transportation for your way home (some LEOs around here actually bother to use scales). A good passenger should be prepared for the posibility that wearing a helmet might ruin the hairdo too.

  • It’s hard to balance during slow speeds if you a type of rider that likes to lean the motorcycle itself pretty hard because the second person usually won’t move their body to balance with you, therefore countering your lean. I rode a couple of my friends on my cbr300 most like both of us together would be like 280lbs which a lot of weight for small bike. Also one time I was sitting on my bike and with no notice my friend hopped on the back. I was very close to dropping the bike

  • first time i ever rode a real bike was as passenger. the rider was a big guy and we also had only helmets so i was holding on to those seat handles with my life lol. he didn't go super fast or lean too much and it was ok. it was the first time i ever felt the engine of a beautiful beast purr, in first person... i think it sparked my love for bikes even more, can't wait to get one of my own haha

  • Passenger/new rider here, thanks for the video. I started riding as a result of riding passenger of a cool sportbike of a guy I was really into. It was such a thrill that when me and the guy stopped seeing each other I decided to take a course and get a motorcycle of my own. PLOT TWIST: after I got my bike I sent a photo of me and my bike to the guy and we're back together and he's helping me learn. :) SOME THINGS TO MENTION: It's important to not crowd the rider. A few times I found myself sliding forward (I'm a pretty petite girl) and have to slide myself back into place on my seat. Riding passenger on sportbikes is not the most comfortable thing and I find myself bouncing around a lot and will have to make sure I have good grip on the pegs. Also, when in doubt, just ask the rider what he/she prefers as for grip style. I still continue to ask for feedback on how I'm doing as a passenger.

  • I still find it more comfortable if the passengier acts like "dead weight" and not lean with me, because sometimes they lean just way too much and its just really dangerous.

  • I used to ride pillion with my Dad when I was a kid. I got my license when I was in college, and inspired him to ride again. When he bought a bike, I decided to try riding pillion which I found unsettling, in a way I hadn't as a kid. I found it hard to not be in control of the bike.

  • I'm going to old man here. I have something like 150,000 miles under my belt maybe more, I don't know. I do know one thing and that is the bitches be crazy. They will jump right on the back of bike without much thought. Personally unless it's some sort of emergency with a rider I know well I would never ride back seat. Women just take a leap of faith that the rider knows what he doing? Add gender combinations here..... I ride 2 up probably 80% of the time now, I can't escape my wife. "Oh going for a ride, I'll go." Not really what I had in mind. She's well trained, does what she should be doing but I think my mistake was showing her too much and gearing her up. She rode a moped in college so she knows how, she just needs to scale it up but she can't ride the bikes I ride and seems to like the thrill or whatever. I did have the idea of her getting a bike, I doubt that idea goes anywhere. She wood just rather ride in on a cool big bike as passenger compared to riding in herself on a Honda Rebel. Been up grading my wife's gear which if you have a partner that will be around a while you need to get them some good gear. End result is this for me. Bought a com system which is nice to hear the GPS, talk to your passenger and answer a phone call if it comes in. Also a few weeks a go caught a go sale on ladies leather jackets, full on riding jackets. $450 jacket for $125, the North is going snow for winter so they needed to get ride of some stuff I guess. I live in the Deep South BTW. We're riding through a swamp which is the usual where I am with big rain coming down. Wife says where we going to stop? I said we don't need to I can ride in this. I think that was the first time in her life that she realized a bike can ride in heavy rain and with the right gear it's really not a problem. 20 minutes later she realized rain isn't a problem which is one of the things that always scares her. It might rain I don't want to go for a ride. Now that isn't a limiting factor. Well shouldn't have bought her a jacket that works right and told her rain really isn't problem. Riding by myself is becoming more of a problem.

  • Ive always told people to ride at least a full year before adding a passenger. If im going WOT from a stop i pull my passenger in tight. And my ex came up w a good term for riding passenger, "jetpack" she holds on tight and leans as i lean. No surprises that way but it does require implicit trust that i know what im doing.

  • Leaning is a must have I never drivin a motorcycle but I know it’s a must, one day my ex girls fathers like let’s go for a rip on the snow machines (me being 16 and the last I rode was with my dad when I was 10ish) I said I knew what I was doing, we came out of his trail to the main trail and he gunned it so I did the same, my girlfriend and I both leaned outside cuz of the corner and I one skied it and the ass slid out in a drift I instantly stood up and counter balanced it, it scares the shit out of me for the rest of the ride that I could have injured my girlfriend, don’t do shit your not comfortable in, it’s not worth it

  • Yummy you’re a little young for me and you have a lot to learn the information you give is textbook but most passengers or anyone that is ever gotten on the back of my bike I know them and they know me and a good rider would never let anybody on the back of their bikeWithout them understanding first to stay with the rider and do what the Ryder does you do have some good points and enjoy a lot of your content However and you have said it yourself it is a life long craft after you get some years under your belt you’ll look back at a lot of this and laugh. But you do have some good researchers and in the future I look forward to asking your Opinions onCertain motorcycles I am 65 and have been Writing for life I have a Suzuki dirtbike and a XS 1100 special Yamaha 1979 with 70,000 miles on it I wasn’t happy with your review on that particular motorcycle it was very fast in its day it stopped pretty good in it today cornering because of the drive shaft could be a bitch in right handersBecause of the shaft drive but you knocked it down pretty good and I do disagree with that Hope you comment and what I have written you I do see that you’re getting back in the saddle after your last mishap it did take a while fear is a powerful thingI’ve had more than my share of the following down the important thing is you get back up respectfully yours K A A

  • Dude 😂 I’ve only lifted 3 people (2 girls, 1 guy), person A (girl) - 2 times; person B (girl) - 4 times, person C (guy) - 1 time. Let me just say, I’m never carrying person A ever again 🤣 she would not stop moving and fiddling around. I could just feel the bike “dancing” under me, she’d try and stay upright in curves, her foot placement on the passenger pegs would obstruct mine and she would not sit on the seat properly🤦‍♂️ it was just hell. Person B was a nice passenger, I have no problem carrying her again, she doesn’t do stupid things and I felt comfortable. Person C at least knew how he should behave but the weight distribution on the bike when he was on felt very weird as my rear end dropped quite a bit.

  • 2 people on a bike, for rider: 1. Never throttle suddenly, trust me it is bad. 2. Only brake suddenly if it is really needed. 3. Give space to your ball, each time you brake, your ball will be squashed. for passenger: 1. Try to relax and enjoy the ride. 2. Adjust your position only when the bike is stop. 3. For no gay situation, always put your hand on your tight. If needed, put your hand on the rider shoulders.

  • I always tell my passengers that the most important thing is to not shift weight in the middle of a corner. No matter how bad of a position you think you are in to take the corner, if you stay in that position, I'll be able to at least get around the corner in a somewhat stable way. If you shift your weight, that takes an unstable position and makes it 20x worse, because now it a moving unstable position.
