All well and good advice when one up on bike and I get that.
However and I do think it’s a game changer when you are 2 up and pillion stays seated. I’m talking touring weights. This is our new “thing” to do and have done a little, but still learning and still trying to improve confidence levels in this area.
Does rider stand up and do the counter lean etc..or should rider stay seated also for best control?
I’ll eventually work it out no doubt, I’m thinking that it will probably be safer for both to remain seated.
Interested in constructive feedback on this subject. Preferably from those experienced in 2up regular loose surface riding.
Mid size bike 800cc.
