Right so I won't profess to be expert, I remember some here berating me for pillioning my daughter the day I got my license, but I was confident in my ability and never once felt unsafe in what I was doing, plus my daughter acted like she had been on a bike forever. We are 6mnths in and I pillion my daughter and my partner all the time. Not once ever come close to grief or felt unsafe. Today I witnessed a guy on a 300 with his mrs on the back. His mrs was wearing leggings and sandles which meh their life. However I then witnessed his riding ability or lack there of, he cut through a carpark to avoid a roundabout, he was jerky in first, he pulled out of carpark at about 5kph wobbling about. Now I know we all gotta learn, but if your clearly not capable or confident then don't put your mrs at risk. Even worse at leadt make sure she is geared up incase the worst happens. Again I do not profess to be an expert, I am only 6mnths into my license, but I have pillioned since day dot and have pillioned at least 1500km now both adukts and kids. So I guess I feel confident enough to say if your not confident then don't do it.
