Well that is more or less the situation. The top box has a backrest fitted to it. But it worries me because there's nothing to stop her from falling sideways. It would be different if it was a big armchair type of seat, as on a cruiser.

Might be very effective if she didn't know if was there. Yep, that would wake her up for sure. Assume it has a remote control, of course, and I get to keep it?

Mrs WIBO is the same...any long distance she'll nod off....(she's med'ed up with anti epilepsy drugs so can sleep without any problem)

I try to just stop every hour and a half or so and stretch out ....erm...or the best solution is ...to leave her at home...ahem

Ooooh you better hope she's not reading this!

Oh well, next big ride will be only mostly rough roads, shorts distances, fair bit of mud. very likely a few "unplanned dismounts". I suspect Mrs won't get much sleep through all of that. In fact she may not want to come anymore.
