Kind of like a mini, reverse sissy bar if you can imagine that!

Not sure if it is possible but she really likes the 1098 and wants to ride once in a while so I have to do something. I guess we'll see!
Here is a quick modification you can do to your 1098 pillion seat. This gives your passenger a place to hold on. Just remove the seat strap bolts and move the strap rearward and use a short bolt and nut and bolt the ends of the strap together and place it ahead of the spring latch.

My pillion passenger has trouble with the pillion pegs folding up on her when I accelerate. Does anyone else run into this problem?

My advice, buy another bike to take people with you on cause this one is not made for it at all. =]

They only go on one way. The pegs sweep back and up to collapse. I have thought of drilling them to insert a pin to keep that from occurring while in use.

They can't be spring loaded like the fronts ?? Cost a couple of springs, easy to fit/unfit ?? I know that a hypermotard passenger peg is exactly the same as a 916 front peg with spring. Just a thought.

My young bloke who is 7 had trouble with this on the first and second rides. Hasn't had a problem since. But he does keep falling down the front of the pillion seat onto the back of my seat. My daughter who is 10 has no such trouble. I think she is probably about the size of person they designed the pillion seat for. Doesn't affect the handling noticeably.

both of them prefer to ride on the back of my Pantah though so perhaps I will have to hang on to it.

As of 1 July my little bloke is no longer old enough to ride on the back legally. Has to wait till September for his next ride.
