OlivierG Posted June 27, 2018 Share Posted June 27, 2018 Je me prépare pour un voyage de 3000-4000km avec ma douce. Impossible pour moi de tout faire le trajet assis. J'ai donc trouvé ceci d'interressant sur Advpulse. Vous avez essayé cette technique? D'autres suggestions? The Stand Up Riding Position The Holy Grail of riding two up off-road is to do it standing up. Like a solo rider, the intention is to decouple the human mass from that of the bike to improve control. Awkward as this technique appears, it can be mastered with practice. The most conventional position is when the pillion gets their weight forward and wraps both arms under the pilot’s arms holding on to the outer chest area. On downhills, the pillion wraps one arm under the pilots left arm and places their dominant hand on the back between the rider’s shoulder blades to keep distance and avoid putting pressure on the lower back. Both riders stand up and sit down together in unison. Practice on a smooth road before progressing to more technical terrain. Mastering two-up stand-up riding gives the pilot improved freedom of movement and better physical communication with the pillion rider in technical terrain. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
