Hi all, Now after having a couple of bikes for about 5yrs in total, both Suzuki's (RGV, GSXR), this feels like a bit of a silly question. But here goes... What is the strap on the pillion seat for exactly? Is it a crappy substitute for a metal grab rail? It doesn't look very strong? I'm looking to start taking a pillion passenger, and in the past they've struggled with the high seat position, and lack of grab handle. I'm also not a big bloke, so I sit toward the front of the bike and the gap between the pillion and myself is rather large if i'm in the sportsbike "racing" riding position. So a grab rail would be ideal but this ain't a pillion friendly bike. What's the best thing for them to hang onto? Rider's waist for the most part I take it. But under braking does pushing against the tank with your hands help? I've also read about those handles u can buy that clip around the riders waist. Cheers, Shan.
