Grab-rail

Hey there... you could get yourself something like this fitted:



... but in all honesty, it spoils the appearance IMHO.  These bikes aren't really made to carry passengers, and the extra footrests etc. are put there very much as an afterthought.

If you want to carry passengers around very much, you really didn't want to get a supersports bike.

on pillions...

my nine year old son wants to come on my bike.  I'd always said no in the past but he keeps pestering.  Legally he's fine and if i did take him i'd get him the right kit, but just don't know still.....:upset:

Child pillion - sorry to hijack thread

My daughter has been riding pillion with me since she was 5 years old - as soon as her feet could reach the pegs. We've been all over including a week in Paris. I ride as if I was carrying precious cargo, which of course you are, go slower, brake earlier, follow further back. That's not to say ride like you're 90, just smarter and smoother. She's 15 now and comes out less cos it's not so cool and messes up her hair, but we've had some great times together :biggrin:
