She's got relatively long legs, too. Maybe that's that problem. Her legs are long enough for her to try that. Most female passengers I've given rides to are not tall enough to think about attempting that kinda dismount. They all instinctively swing the outside leg over - same way they hop on.

I don't think the rider should tilt the bike over for the pillion.

Exactly what I was thinking. Saw a guy on a Kawasaki the other morning making a u-turn to get to the Sugar Land La Madeline for a group ride practically power walk it until he got it pointed straight.

I like short so I usually have to. Really not that hard to tip the bike over to "get her off" If you can't do it yourself maybe you need some help getting her off and could use the kickstand if not able to on your own.

But I also open the car door, and open doors when we go out.

That's why you tell your passenger that the first thing on the bike is their left foot and the last thing on the bike is their left foot and that their feet never come off the pegs until you tell them to get off the bike.

lol... awesome. At least she was wearing gear and landed somewhere soft!

LUCKILY, I've never given anyone a ride who hadn't already spent some time on a bike. And I've managed to keep it that way with strategic planning at times (sorry, tail bag on; sorry, no spare gear here; sorry, I've been drinking; sorry, you're pregnant lol)

I'd still make a turn like that though. It's the slow speed stuff that is difficult. I could power walk it easily at full or close to full lock, or I could make the U-turn at a normal speed... probably 95% of the time. It takes ONCE to have to push it backwards... with a passenger... for me to take the easy way out... swing wide.
Blue box is no problem 1up.

It's not a courtesy issue. The right way for the passenger to get on the pillion properly:

1. Put her left foot on the left passenger peg first
2. Get a hold of the rider, typically his left shoulder
3. Stand up on her left foot and swing her right leg over the pillion

If she does the mount/dismount properly, tilting the bike over doesn't help. It might actually makes it more difficult and hazardous, because now the passenger foot peg is not level and she might not get a good foothold while getting on and off.
