Odd Question; have you ever been a passenger on a motorcycle?

I cannot recall ever being on the back of a bike. How about you?

Years ago I bitched on the back of a Harley for a very short period of time.

Only a damned fool rides on the back of a motorcycle....LOL

I was on the back of my dad's various bikes a few times over the years... Yamaha Virago, Honda Goldwing, and a few Harleys.

Once (only once!) on my stepdad's Eddie Lawson replica Kawasaki...

And once (again, only once!) on the back of my brother's Ninja.

I jumped on the back of a mate's Bandit once. He was wanting to impress me I reckon because he cranked it up to about 200kph during that run. He commented later that I was a great passenger as I didn't wobble around or lean the wrong way or anything. He thought I must have had experience. I just nodded, meanwhile I was actually thinking the real reason was I was scared stiff and just became a rigid, white knuckled piece of the bike so I didn't fall off...

Baller,

My brother William had an Eddie Lawson Replica...As I remember Kawasaki only made 1 or 2 of the replicas for every dealer. They were cool bikes.

Once, I was terrified and never again. I Like having the control and I found out I do not trust anyone driving the bike but me.

I rode behind my middle son, when he rode a new BMW1150RT from California up to Montana to show it off. The demonstration of acceleration was "impressive"; but, my pants stayed clean and dry. That was my only pillion experience.

Only ever once been a passenger on the back of a bike. Can't say I enjoyed it as much as riding, it all felt completely alien, when the bike chambered it felt completely different to riding it.

I'll stay up front from now on lol
