I hate haveing a passenger, therefore my rear seat cowl stays on at all times. I have had a few passengers on the back. My ex g/f use to push against the gas tank to keep from slamming into me when ever I braked before a turn or comming to a stop. She held onto the tank more than me. I remember she pissed me off one time, so I decided to scare the ***** out of her...I popped up a wheelie with her on the back unexpectedly. I didn't keep it up very long but it would have been so easy to do. She was screaming her head off, and she really didn't want to ride with me anymore. LOL that's what I was hopeing for.
