“I freely ad­mit to turn­ing on the heated seat just 30 min­utes after we set off!” writes Sarah Tuck­well. “Be­ing a pil­lion means you are fa­mil­iar with buf­fet­ing and al­ways try­ing to duck be­hind the rider, but with the screen fully ex­tended there is a huge dif­fer­ence, im­me­di­ately you can re­lease the ten­sion in your neck and start to ap­pre­ci­ate the scenery. You can even sing along to the ra­dio with­out the wind whistling past your ears.

“Once we reached the scenic route the BMW was much more fun, the en­gine’s power meant that over­tak­ing was ef­fort­less. I thor­oughly en­joyed the jour­ney and as the sun set we reached our desti­na­tion warm, shel­tered and with­out a numb pos­te­rior.

“A quick word about lug­gage: I packed three out­fits, which in­cluded a leather jacket and win­ter boots, a large cos­metic bag, and hair straight­en­ers too.”
