My girlfriend and I are about 5'8" so I have to sit right up on the gas tank, and she has to lean way forward to hold on to me. Is there any passenger seat extensions or tips on how to ride with her so she isn't so uncomfortable?

Thanks!

Teach her to ride and how to be a good passenger, My ex was 5'7" but she had her own liter bike and knew how to ride so she knew what to do as a passenger. Riding with a passanger is never the same as riding alone but isnt to bad if they know what they are doing.

My girl wraps one arm around me and puts one hand on the tank. Seems to work the best, they are sport bikes so there is nothing back there and they will be hunched over because you are also.

Would have to go with a different style bike.

+1 for getting her a bike of her own.. I'm 5'8" and dont have to be scrunched up on the tank.. maybe you should try adjusting your riding position too.

and whenever I'm a passenger, I just rest both hands on the tank, usually keep a few fingers interlocked just in case we take off and I need to hang on. If you are a good rider and she knows/trusts you, she shouldn't need to hang on too tight.

My gf puts her hands on the tank. She barely ever hangs on to me. Most the time I don't even know she is back there..... Until the little back rub at a light. ;-)
Oh, and she rides too.

Your GF hangs onto me pretty tight, you sure you're using the throttle?
