Went riding the other day with my wife on the back and she fell asleep for a second,and I about had a heart attack. Guess I am going to have to tie the ole lady on.or tie one on after I get back from riding with her. I asked her If I was going too slow, and she said she just can't stay awake at times.

Ole man, I had this problem 1.5 years ago. Went to the doc to find out I was mildly type 2 diabetic (sugar and carbs make me sleepy)
and also have Sleep Apnea. Have her get to the doc, we dont want her falling off!!

i'll tell ya what i did after that ( kids and their friends won't let me leave the driveway without one of them on the back ( it's in the puppy dog eyes )) . i try to keep away from long, straight roads. curves seem to keep them excited. when i did hit a long straight way i don't maintain any speed. up a little , down a little every couple of minutes. the movement in the bike keeps them bushy tailed. seems to work good for me, so far.

I was riding with my ten year old son on the back of my Honda cb750 (it has a big sissy bar on it) and I came to a stop sign and felt the weight of his head in my back. He doesn't admit to it but he'd fallen asleep I had to shake him. luckily we weren't far from home, coming home from his brothers' basketball game. I couldn't believe someone could fall asleep on the back of a bike! I never did when my dad gave me a ride I was too excited!
