Angry 2011 passanger

Every time I have a girl on the back of my bike, it seems like they're reaching far to be able to hold onto me by the way the passenger seating is on the zx6r, I'm not a short guy, just a inch under six foot. Girls usually aren't any taller then 5'6. anyone have any suggestions to how I can make the ride a little more comfortable for her, even when i get on the throttle and release it quick or i hit the brakes a little hard she comes flying into my back and then has to readjust herself again, she has to also sit on the very front of the passenger seat where the band is that's around it. seems just a little odd.

My wife puts her arms around me and places her hands on the gas tank. This way she supports her weight on the gas tank and doesn't slam into me.

Of note, whenever you ride with a passenger, you should be very gentle with the controls (both accelerating and braking), you're trying to make it a pleasant experience for them not a nightmare!

BTW Just like anything else, it takes practice to be a good passenger. My wife is an excellent passenger!!

The rear seat on everything after the '07 is really just an afterthought. It's not meant to be comfortable at all.

My passengers do the same, the hand on the gas tank will help allot. Gentle with the controls as mentioned, this will come with practice. Took me a bit to remember to play nice lol.

Yeah I noticed that my ex use to do that. And that does make sense, just need to find someone who is already experienced in being a passenger instead of taking them bike cherries lol

when my ex was on mine she would have to sit so far up on the seat she was sitting on that strap so she just put her hands on the gas tank.
