I've had a few of those characters on my bike. I've also been those characters, one thing I know 100% is that I belong on the front seat, I HATE being on the back so I won't do it

Many years ago, giving a very attractive woman a ride home from the beach on my old Ducati 900SS, and I've rarely had a pillion before. Bit of an uphill off a red light, and an accidental 45 degree wheelie (my first on that bike - long wheelbase). She squealed in glee, held on tight, and we were together for 12 damn fine years.

I usually tell my inexperienced passengers to just sit like they are a bag of potatoes. That way I am not telling them to sit still but just to sit like they were strapped to the bike like luggage. That usually makes them follow around corners easily and trust my driving... Can only recommend it.

There’s no one more pillion: a guy that’s twice heavier than you… had such once for 500meters ride. Never again

Just be sure to tell your Pillion the basics, don't assume they know. My first time on a bike I was a Pillion of the "Statue Stefanie" variety. Not because I was scared but simply because I didn't know what to do so I figured no movements and then let the rider do all the work would be best. After a few turns the rider pulled over and explained to me it was best for me to copy his movements and lean into the turns as he did. So I did and after that simple 10 second explanation the ride was smoother and more enjoyable for the both of us.

Nice to have an attractive woman ridding pillion, but that sure wears off when she's leaning on your back, and your wrists start to ache.

The way I learned was to ride with my dad while learning so I learned to ride with a passenger before learning to ride without one. After that riding without one feels like your bike is weightless.

I've taken 5 or 6 different people on rides now and I'm so grateful none of them have been like these examples. I've told them beforehand to essentially: I don't bite, hold onto me tight, and lean with me. Only crappy thing is (and it's on me 100%) when I shift with a passenger, I have to pay WAY more attention to my revs and clutch work so their head doesn't hit mine 😂

The best pillion I’ve ever had never ridden a bike in his life. My advice the first time he got on the back of my bike was relax, hold on with your knees and lean when I do. I taught the worst pillion I’ve ever had to ride 😂🤣😂 talk about high strung. Mind you riding along on an expressway she got so uptight instead of telling me to stop she was trying to light a cigarette at 120kmph saying that she’s also a prime example of why if it’s dark you never use a cigarette lighter to check how much petrol is in your bike. 🔥💥💥💥😂🤣😂

I don't like some random pillions. That's why I don't take any on board from a side. =) I had a couple of "permanent" pillions, but with each of them I had and episode of "How to train your pillion" movie for a month or two. This pays off with a good pillion who knows how to behave. =)))

After my wife got comfortable riding 2 up in a parking lot and round the block, I took her out for dinner. There's a nice, long, easy curve where I get to lean in a bit at pretty good speed (less than 50mph, but higher than 35). When we got to dinner I asked her if she remembered that turn. She said she did. I said "Great! Whatever you did on that curve, do THAT every time." She said "I didn't do anything" 🤣

And what to do with a Sleepy Stacy? My girlfriend has the habit of falling asleep on the back of the bike, knocking her helmet into mine when she does, or when I shift/brake. Also makes her shift backwards when I accelerate. Of course keeping her awake would be best, and Ive asked her too, but she just falls asleep every time

My favorite part is when I lean far inside a corner, my pilons foot scrapes the ground an she quickly rearranges herself on the backseat. Nothing better than a bit of work in the suspension while driving on the edge. Well I guess just drive a little more patient then

I like my pillion that put their feet on the ground when I stop. And of course follow my body in corners. You can know whether a pillion is used to ride a bike or no by their body movement.
