It's only 13 months until my boy can get his own bike.  He's already asked me to pay for his METAL courses for his 16th birthday and is saving for his first bike.  I'm thinking a road/trail will suit his height (and build...6'1 and only 60kg!), can't see him being comfortable on too many of the LAMS bikes....

Many of us carry our beloved pillions on a regular basis and I note that there has been no additions to this thread for ages.    :eek

To give the thread some life, here's a great summary of pillion issues from "FortNine" who has some great stuff on his YouTube channel.     See..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5vUZouBNgE

Keeping your pillion as comfortable as possible makes for 100ks of pleasant riding. Alert your pillion on your moves, like overtaking, coming to a quick stop etc. A good pillion knows your riding style and does everything in sync, some can be like a sack of potatoes on the back 😄
