How To… Be a good pillion

There are countless handbooks, YouTube videos and advanced training options on how to be a good motorbike rider, in fact, you even have to take a test before you are allowed free on the open road. Yet there is no such thing for a pillion. Virtually anyone can put a helmet on and sit on the back of a bike with no guidance, experience or training. The result can often be havoc and cause great problems for the rider.

How To… Prepare the bike to ride with a pillion

A pillion at the back not only means you can share your experiences; it means there will be some extra weight that will affect how your bike behaves. Obviously, the bigger and more powerful the bike is, the less it will be affected, but absolutely any bike is affected when it carries more weight on it.
