20. Riding With a Passenger

Category: Safety Tips

When riding with a passenger, make sure your rider stays relaxed and mimic the driver's movements. For example, if the driver looks left through a curve, the passenger should look left through the curve. If the driver is leaning into the curve, the passenger should lean into the curve with the driver. The passengers body should always work with the driver and not against the driver.

Passengers that squeeze their knees against the driver tend to offer support without encumbering the driver's movements. When possible, your passenger should attend training with the driver.
