What are the risks of riding a motorcycle with a passenger?

Riding your motorcycle can make travel or commuting a lot more fun. Sharing that experience with someone you’re close to might make it even better.

But adding a passenger may increase the risk of accidents and injury. What can you do to make sure that you both are safe while riding?

How to prepare your passenger

Both riders of a motorcycle need to take proper safety precautions. You must make sure that both of you:

  • Wear a helmet and appropriate clothing
  • Use the footrests at all times
  • Don’t turn around or move suddenly while riding

The risk of injury goes up when either you or your passenger don’t follow these guidelines. Both of you should be aware of the correct posture and protective gear for riding.

How it will affect your ride

There is still a risk even if you both act safely. Your motorcycle can handle differently when you have a passenger. Sharing your bike may increase the chance of an accident.

Be aware that the extra weight on your bike can affect turns and the time it takes to stop. Taking more time for these parts of your ride will help to ensure that your bike stays upright.

Whether it is a long trek across the country or just a trip to the movies, any motorcycle ride can be dangerous if you aren’t careful. You don’t want to risk hurting either of you, so be sure to follow all safety procedures before you go for a ride together.
