Pillion Passengers : The Do’s and Don’ts when Carrying a Passenger on a Motorcycle

Pillion Passengers : The Do’s and Don’ts when Carrying a Passenger on a Motorcycle

Motorcycles are great fun when you ride them alone. After all, they were mostly designed for use by one person. However, every once in a while a motorcycle owner needs to bring someone else along for the ride, or perhaps they simply want to. Whatever the reason is, the fact remains that sometimes there are two people riding on a motorcycle, and if you aren’t careful about it this situation can be extremely dangerous. Statistically motorcycles are already more dangerous than cars, so two people just makes the chances worse. Thankfully, as long as you know what you are doing you can mitigate that risk fairly easily, and this is how.
