Pillion Comfort

She who must be obeyed will, as perhaps previously stated, be spending four weeks with me on the crossing from West to East, with a significant southerly detour on the way, as far as the Grand Canyon. She has already, with justification, passed unfavourable judgement on the standard BMW top box cushioning. As a happy pillion is an essential on a ride lasting anything longer than about twenty five minutes, something needed to be done.

I called upon a local auto upholsterer who said it was all too easy and produced something far more substantial as can be seen in the photo. It cost twice what BMW charged, but it is tailor made and with a production run of one there are no economies of scale. Indeed, one always pays a premium for a custom job.

Hopefully it does the trick.
