      I don't know if you can, but I'ld say you "shouldn't". I'ld recommend waiting until you are competent at riding before having the responsibility of someone else's life in your hands

        I am competent at riding. I just want to learn with a passenger while I wait until my test date.

            Really? You are competently able to keep yourself alive and now you want to risk it with a pillion? And let me guess, it is a completely novice pillion as well?

              $500 is the starting price for an Ambulance or the Hospital Account

              I've seen pillions lean the wrong way or move suddenly with people who have been riding for years and its only

              their riding experience that's saved them from an awful ending.

                  Riding with a pillion even when your an experienced rider is a completely different experience all together.
                  Especially if they have never been a pillion before or ridden a bike.
                  Their movements affect the bike so much and it can become dangerous real fast. Even the wind factor is heightened . Handling and braking are completely different too.
                  Honestly if you want to ride with a pillion I recommend you get your license first then find a quiet place to practice with the them on the back and talk to them about their movements etc first

                    It's OK - I'm sure he's had plenty of time on dirt bikes...

                      Do not take a pillion on your bike until you have some actual proper road experience. Please.

                          bit dangerous bro sidecar instead


                          nah do it because when I watch crashes on youtube, the spectacular ragdolling effect is doubled with a pillion and nothing counts unless there are mates around to see it
                          ...and as I sailed through the air in slow motion , my life flashed before my eyes , and I found myself completely bored

                            yes you can

                            and should

                            same as riding in the rain
                            at night
                            or all three at the same time

                            just remember if you stack it:
                            99% of the time the pillion gets the injury
                            and
                            irrespective of the circumstances IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT
                            Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

                              Loosely tie a couple of 25kg bags of sand on the pillion so they will shift from side to side unexpectedly.

                              See how you go.
