Riding 2 up.

So I have been riding 2 up lately and we are going to galveston tomorrow. But I was having a problem with her slipping down on me lol. If we were not on my bike it would be a problem but we are so how do I prevent her from slipping down the passenger seat?

By slipping down I assume you mean getting closer to you? Have her use the tank to hold herself off of you when stopping or slowing. She needs to pay just as much attention as you so that she knows when to adjust and hold her weight accordingly.

if you got staples and a knife you should cut out a comfortable seating position out of the foam and staple it back together.
never tried it but it could work

She does pay attention from what I can tell and she hold the tank too.

I ride 2up often and many times I don't even feel as if i am riding two up. It takes time and explaining things such as repsol Ryder said. But over all just a little time and practice will get the job done. Good luck.

Cheers

use more pressure on the rear brake and go easier on the front brake when coming to a complete stop.

She slides down during riding. Should she squeeze harder with her legs?

Sort of off topic, but let me know when you make it down tomorrow. I live down here and am looking to take a ride tomorrow after class.

Have here squeeze you a little bit with her thighs as well anticipating the stop. Will help hold her in place. Could invest in a small sissy bar with hand holds

She needs to use her feet by putting more pressure on the rear pegs, as well as using the tank. On a sportbike, the passenger has to "work" some to keep from falling/leaning into the rider. Also by using her feet, it'll be easier to be in better position (for you both) when you're leaning into turns.

I only rode on on the back twice but tell her to brace herself, hold her own weight, dont lean on u, do what it takes to stay off of u unless yall are in motion and she just wants to hug her man.
Yea..squeeze her thighs.

use higher psi in your tires btw. you can buy straps for her. but all she can do is use her legs to hold her self and her hands to push herself back. or stop hitting the brake so much and wont slide down as much.

Higher than what? Don't know about his bike but the swingarm placard on my last 3 CBRs listed 36 front/42 rear for solo and 2up. My HD is 30 front/36 rear solo, 40 rear 2up

What about something like these? Something she can push back on when coming to a stop or while riding...

I have 3 items that work really well for LONG 2 up rides.

Anti slip seat cover
Pillion rider grab handles,
Passenger grab bar

For me, I have stomp grips.

Alright, She slips while in motion so I dont think its the breaking. I will just tell her to press down harder on the pegs and squeeze with her thighs more?
