Never taken a pillion? Read this before taking the plunge
ALLOW GREATER BRAKING DISTANCEWith two people aboard, you're vehicle's now heavier and will take longer to stop, so allow greater braking distances at all times, especially in the wet or poor visibility. It will also take longer to get up to speed, so bear this in mind when overtaking, as your bike's performance won't be quite as brisk.
Take your time to get used to the extra weight, especially when cornering, braking and accelerating.
