Q. After years of trying to get my wife to agree to a long riding holiday as pillion she has agreed.
But what can I do to make her as comfortable and safe as possible on the back of my Honda Pan European?

A. Good quality riding kit and helmet are just as important for a pillion as rider. The Honda you have is already brilliant for your pillion, comfort-wise, but perhaps an Airhawk air-bladder seat will help to further improve your wife’s comfort and some kind of Bluetooth communication system might make her feel more involved, by allowing you to talk or listen to an MP3 player while riding. It's surprisingly easy for pillions to get bored.
