– Allow more time and space for passing.
– Be cautious when turning corners, since clearance may be affected.
– You’ll need to brake sooner than normal when carrying passengers.
– The extra weight of your passenger will increase the stopping power of your rear brake.
– You’ll need greater clutch finesse and more throttle when starting from a stop.
– If your passenger is heavy, it will take longer to turn, slow down, or speed up on your motorcycle.
– Avoid traveling at extreme speeds.
– The effects of the wind will be more distinct. Be prepared to counter the effects of wind when appropriate.
– Exercise caution in quick stops, as a passenger can move forward and bump your helmet with theirs.
– Before riding, practice low-speed clutch/throttle control and normal and emergency braking in an open area, like a parking lot, with a passenger.
