    Anyone know of a grab rail that can easily fitted and removed to a ZX 6 R 04

    I dont want a permenate fixture, or if anyone has any other ideas of
    something for a passenger to hold on to. (no rude comments :)

    Have you thought of pillion pals? Its just a belt with two handles that you
    strap around yourself. Works wonders for me and the SWMBO on the bandit but
    don't know about a sports bike.

    Winning the award for the most uses of the word 'pillion' in a url:

    Pillion Pal is your ... err ... pal, I suppose ;-)

    My partner uses one of these when she takes The Sprog pillion and they
    both find it very comfortable and secure. Saves you grabrailing your
    bike too.

    I'm sure he'll have something to say, but wasn't there some fucknugget
    who posted here some time ago about getting his bird to give him
    handjobs while he was riding?

    It would clash horribly with the whole matt black look.

    Hanging on to anything behind is awkward if not painful for a pillion.
    And a pillion pal only helps while you're accelerating.

    Once a rider and pillion are sufficiently practised there should be no
    need for the pillion to hold on to anything, even when you're making
    good progress. I'd suggest you simply go slowly to start with, letting
    them hold you gently round the waist, until your pillion builds up

    That surprises me. Are the loops at your front or your back? Is your
    pillion not simply pushing into your back?

    I'm finding it difficult to imagine how a pillion pal can be of much
    help under braking, but I'm happy to learn. I get asked about pillion
    riding occasionally (as I'm seldom without one!).

    I rather like hanging onto the rider tightly, the odd occasions I've gone

    It's rare that Adie goes on the back of anything I'm piloting (coward)
    but when she does she usually just puts a hand on the tank to stop
    herself sliding forward and hangs on tight to whatever is available
    under acceleration.

    The grab rails on the 9R were good for pillions (or so I'm told) and
    even more useful for attaching bungy straps to. I wish the 10R had
    them because quite honestly, I don't look at the back of the bike when
    I'm riding and I don't give a flying **** about someone else's

    Pat just grips hard with her thighs when we brake, leans forward and
    grabs her knees when we accelerate.

    *ding* although do hang on a bit tighter when one wheel is in the air
