PostSubject: A cheaper brico… / Pillion grab - love handles   Sat May 31, 2014 6:17 pm

Hi ppl.

Well, as I do not like to see on my bike the sissy bar, I decided to make a brico like "MacGiver style".
I used a military belt, (strong enough), two handles of an old suitcase and a twine leather…and here it is:







When i go for a ride with my wife, I tighten the belt over the jacket on me, she grabs the handles (one or both) and does not fall back, avoid having back pain and i think it's more safer, because we are more closer. But of course it's only my opinion.

Today even she fall asleep on back return of 150 kms    
I think it's was because of the fresh wine we drink on lunch.  

I only realized what was happening after some time passed, her helmet started hitting constantly on mine.
But she has never quit the handles

Good job done José, nothing worse than losing your wife while out riding. No man should have to cook his own meals those grab handles really are a good and give a pillion passenger confidence.

Good man, keep control & let her know you have it.    I have some Love handles & used them a lot before fitting or when not using the sissy bar.

Fliipin eck José never thought about undoing the buckle. Your a clever guy, will keep that in mind. Think I will take the wife out for a quick spin and I mean quick as in very fast

Yes - the solution to earache at the click of a buckle      

Respect to Jose   

... However, I'm not sure it would work for me, as the 'Good Lady' has fallen asleep on the CBR without falling off ...... serious dent to whatever reputation I had    
We all have our crosses to bear   

Cheers    Yam
