It is. I'm not comfortable riding on back, either. That may have something to do with why I don't like riding somebody else.

I've had friends fall asleep after drinking on the back... One did three times when we rode back to the Woodlands from a Pearland meet and greet at PJ's.

I have a bungee net in the back and almost strapped her to me. I held on w the left leg the whole time. When I felt her helmet against my back I knew she was sleeping.

Amanda rode w me to a southside meet one time; it was so COLD! She rode back in a car... we both wore full gear; her hands were behind me and her knees were against my booty trying to draft; but she was the best passenger I have had to date cuz she knew how to relax and trust me.
I've only ever ridden any distance with Toni on her vmax. I trust her. And Brett rode me on the sea wall once. Oh, and I rode with Sixshooter on the dirt road at the spooky ride. that's all.

Exactly, so now it's back on you for not paying attention.

Check your book, there are some tips in there for riding with passengers.

Consider taking an ERC (you should have enough miles by now) with a passenger.

You can bring a passenger to the ERC class? How many miles do I need? I think I'm about 5k.

No actual requirements. RECOMMENDED is 3K and 6 months experience.

Some schools will allow a passenger during the ERC.

TTD parade laps... limited to below 100 mph and they need gear...

Come with me some times and I'll put fear back into a bike. Or you can two up a forest ride. We'll teach B to get low ON a bike.

I think the bike makes a huge difference, too. I used to ride 2 up on my old gix 750 all of the time, but when I got the R1 I couldn't stand it. I removed the pegs and through on the rear cowl. Good thing about your young ones is that they don't weigh a whole lot so they won't influence your control of the bike too drastically.

My son weighs as much as I do. My daughter is less by 30 - before too long they'll be riding me around on back!

For me it depends a lot on the bike I'm on, and more importantly the person riding with. Had some girls that knew how to lean, relax, etc. Last one however wouldn't listen at all and would left hard left when I would take a sharper right turn no more rides for her.
