Tips for the Two-Up Passenger

We all know that when riding a motorcycle your gear, especially jeans or riding pants, has a tendency to shift. Well... sometimes crawl, as in crawl into places they really shouldn't be and at the same time moving part way up your leg from the ankle. As passengers we like to take any opportunity to adjust and rectify that uncomfortable invasion when we can. This leads me to my second tip.....

Two-Up Tip No. 2: When the motorcycle is coming to a stop do not stand on the pegs and adjust your jeans/riding gear. As the motorcycle slows down it becomes less stable. When the bike is at full speed and with a little warning to the front rider by all means stand a little, shift a little, pull a little. But please, do not do it at a stop or while just coming to a stop. Bikes and riders do not look good toppling over sideways.
