on the aprila?

is your suspension set up for your weight, or are you running stock settings?
Yes on the Aprilia, on the Triumph it felt like it was way too much strain on the bike with accelerating, braking, and cornering. So we got a 1k vtwin to ride on instead
My suspension isnt setup for me yet but it has been tuned for the previous rider. After fixing her, taking it to Patricks for a suspension tune is the next priority

So, for example, in a left turn, the passenger should lean as much as you do and look over your left shoulder. I've never ridden with anyone though, just taking that straight out of the book.
yup.

I'm looking for some more advanced techniques. we got down the basics

Save the more advanced techniques for the track. Riding two up adds weight and more stopping distance, as well as making it harder to make emergency maneuvers. If you care about the passenger you ride more sedate and relaxed and leave the banzai cornering for when you are alone.

That or get her a bike of her own and open up a real fun world!

That being said, the curb monkey needs to relax, and mirror your movements, look thru the turns, and support themselves against the tank when stopping.
