Theres some good points on there... I honestly think that a lot of people don't know what it's like to ride 2 up. It's definitely not the best feeling in the world. It's not easy... to ride around with a passenger either, learning the leans is much different.

I agree. For me, the biggest adjustment is braking and riding to be smooth. When you are riding by yourself it is a lot easier to ride smooth and you know to expect the acceleration when you twist, but your pillion has no idea you just twisted

Riding to be smooth is REALLY hard... Everyone talks about doing it but it is definitely not something thats easily done.

Distance and comfort are key for a new passenger or rider. Plan for a much shorter ride than your ideal, and make sure to recalibrate from what your idea of a 'short ride' is. If they're feeling it, you can always stay out longer.
