In your own and your passenger's interest you should be rather very careful in applying this idea. The weight of a leaner, the usually different frame (strength as well as trail & steering angle) and the suspension are not really up for riding as a rigid outfit.
I know of at least two reports from people (idenpendent from each other) that got into serious situations which easily could have been fatal when trying to run a leaner as a rigid outfit.
