I know there is already a thread on riding two up, but I'm wondering what you guys think is the proper exp./skill level required for safe riding with a passenger. Additionally if you have any tips or techniques I'd love to hear them.
The MSF Instructor told me six months, but I'd personally venture a year. Been riding for ten years and I'm just getting used to taking a passenger. Depends on your experience level, i.e., how comfortable you are with you bike, how much weight it can effectively handle suspension-wise, and your ability to control the bike with significant added weight.

Try taking your would-be passenger to a large parking lot to practice basic maneuvers (turning, braking, and becoming synchronous with your passenger or vice versa), just as if you were learning to ride all over again.
