How do you move about the bike?
when my bike was resting for a while i was doing the whole curb monkey thing.. my arms and hands was supporting myself on the tank. so i don't crush the guy i was with into the tank after a while maybe 30 min of riding my hands would get tired of holding myself up i would just put my hands on his thighs. knees/legs tucked in leaned with the guy, but everytime we would turn sharp my head EX: if we turned a hard right i would put my head on right side of his shoulder not directly behind him.. so its gives him a little bit more turning ability and soo i could see where we headed and how far i needed to lean with him

As for supporting her, she has started to brace herself on the tank in braking so I don't have to hold us both up w/my legs. In the turns I haven't hit em hard enough for us to need to slide off the seat at all b/c that's just too risky for my taste.
Reading is fundamental scotty

BTW just to show a contrast...I took my nephew on a lil cruise and he hugged me like a backpack...great in the turns as long as he was just clinging to me, but on my legs/wrists trying to hold me and him up @ the same time

She needs to look through the turn with you. I want to clarify my comment above. She may elect to move her head to the outside, if it makes her feel more comfortable, but not the weight of her body. Most likely you will already have your head turned in anyway, so she won't have to bend her head much, if at all. It is always best if she moves her head in, and looks into and through the turn, right along with you. Nothing drastic, though. All in all, she needs to be in sync with you, and follow your lead.

for the most part it stayed but depending on how long the ride was i would slide or move alot.. i rode with Jeff on the Agusta (he had a uncomfortable seat) so i moved a lot.. but if you ride 2up all the time. consider getting a gel seat for her
