    Same - but if he starts breathing heavy and rubbing up against me, we're gonna stop and have words!

    LOL!

    To be fair, I've only had chicks, wife, my son and male friends on the back - not some random guy. (I did pick up a couple of female hitch-hikers in my pre-married life though!)

    The most unlikely person I have ever ridden pillion with ,was a priest all leathers and dog collar.
    I fouled the plug on my 50cc bike when I was 16. I was 20 miles from home (pre mobile phone).
    He stopped, we chatted. He knew my pop from drag racing and took me the round 40mile trip on his GS550 to get a plug spanner. Probably my best interaction with the Church ever.

    Re: How old were you when you first rode pillion?

    Story of how I got into motorcycles. Up until I was 19, I was not interested in bikes, thought they were too dangerous, blah-blah...

    ... and then I rode pillion (or the "b*** seat", as it was referred to by the rider)...
    ... on a back of Honda Magna cruiser...
    ... with my girlfriend at the time as the rider.

    Try to beat that in the area of self-confidence for a 19 year old!!!

    Being 6'3, 200 lbs sitting above the rider's seat did not help balance issues (I and only I controlled the lean in the corners), but did help answering the howling coming from the Jeep filled with guys that stopped parallel to us at a traffic light.

    My girlfriend and I didn't last, but the love of freedom and wind in the face stayed. Few years later, I took motorcycle course, and here I am now.

    Re: How old were you when you first rode pillion?

    I've been riding since I was 15, first in the (then) wide open spaces of SoCal and then on the street from 16 on.
    I know this will sound bad but I've never had the nerve to trust anyone else to be in control of a bike with me on the back..

    Re: How old were you when you first rode pillion?

    on home made minibikes in Melbourne at about 10 or 11, on the road at about 17 with a mate on his learners( bit naughty) then he moved to LA and I visited and we rode from LAX to Hollywood and beyond on freeways him on his new Yam 250 me in light travel cotton pants a leather jacket just bought in SOHO London, (and not a bike jacket) and best of all NO helmet. I look back on all those experiences and think how damn lucky I have been

    Re: How old were you when you first rode pillion?

    I was 5 when my Dad first took me for a ride on his '78 Kawasaki KZ1000. I also remember a few years later, a car full of smart-assed teenagers pulled up beside us in a Mustang GT, revving their engine. My Dad turned around, told me to hang on & proceded to blow their doors off! They were much tamer at the next stop light!
