Pillion falling asleep

now gunga popped in at our local on Friday after work (nice to see ya bruv) for a pint or 3, meet Mrs unit and we had a laugh, took the piss and generally wound people up, you know, like normal people do:unsure:


anyhow, the subject turned to pillions, and Mrs unit said on our trip down through France last year she kept nodding off, nodding off :shock: didn't think that was poss 2 up on a VFR @ 80+ mph....surprised gunga anorl.

So has anyone else ever had their pillion "fall asleep"....if so, did they stay on :unsure:

I've done it

Many moons ago (late 70's), the boyfriend had a Yamaha xs1100.  We fitted a couple of panniers and a topbox, so it was comfy on the back!!

He only got cross with me when I started sliding down his back, as we approached a roundabout once. :ph43r::shock:

When I was with my ex, I used to fall asleep quite a bit when I used to be pillion, particularly when travelling long distance.

However ive never fallen asleep if or had to go pillion with Kam, but I have been know to take the odd photo..... which is an experience!! :blink:

I used to.

Always on long trips. Mr B never had a problem with it. Apparently I never moved at all. He is a pretty smooth rider though.

Nowadays he's too quick. I try not to get on the back as he takes offence if I kick him in the face as I topple off.

nodding off

My missus often used to fall asleep on the back, on a long run. I even fell asleep on the front once, on a motorway  :shock:  the bike leaping up in the air, on the verge next to the armco soon wakes you up...  :lol:
