First of all, are you aware that you started two new threads asking the exact same question?

Regarding the pros and cons, though generally speaking this is ill-advised, the answer to your question would vary considerably if your pillion weighs 75 lbs and you are driving a Goldwing rig with a Hannigan Astro as compared to a 200 lb pillion on a KLR with an outback-style car.

So, provide us with the specifics--weight of yourself and your pillion, bike, and car.
