Motorcycle Pillion Passenger Safety – Grab Handles

Motorcycle Pillion Grab Handles

Have you ever been on the back of a motorcycle and felt insecure or scared?

If the motorcycle was not manufactured with grab handles fitted below the seat, the passenger usually is required to hold onto the rider’s jacket. This is not only unsafe as the passenger could lose grip, it also feels unsafe for the pillion passenger.

Being Unsafe Vs Feeling Unsafe


If the motorcycle is a Sports Bike then it usually has grab handles below the pillion seat, however holding on directly below you, does not feel as secure as holding on in front of you as the bike accelerates.

Haul N Ride would like to show you to a clever and very affordable solution.

Introducing Motorcycle Pillion Safety Grab Handles

I will begin with the cheapest available.

Cons

Pillion Motorcycle Grab Handles

I believe this style allows “Pull Apart Stress” on the buckle. The buckle may be a bit lightweight for these stresses.

However, the Grab Handles create a feeling of security and provide a better grip than trying to hold onto the rider’s jacket, and therefore are an improvement in pillion passenger safety.

I am glad there are alternative styles that although they a bit more expensive, their design transfers the “Pull Apart Stress” away from the buckle.

Allow me to explain. In the above Pillion Handles, the buckle is located at the rider’s stomach. The “Pulling Apart Stress” from the passenger will be adding tension to pull the buckle apart.

The following style moves this tension to the rider’s back, protecting the buckle from the “Pull Apart Stress”.

What about the Kids?

 

Kid’s Motorcycle Pillion Handles


I like this design because the stress is not placed on the buckle at the rider’s stomach.

I also like this product because it does not require the child to hang on with their hands and the child has handles to grab if they want. The child’s shoulders are secured into a harness for extra safety.
