I like the incapacitated rider drill - a lot. It is really useful to discuss this sort of thing, and if you don't think your partner is incapable of doing it, you're probably wrong. Once they have a plan to use in an emergency, it is much easier. I am reminded of a guy I used to work with many years ago. In the second World War he was a young navigator in an RAF Blenheim bomber in a mission over Germany when his pilot was killed. He'd never flown a plane, or even had any tuition, but he took over and managed to fly back to the UK to land safely, saving the lives of the rest of the crew. He received a well-deserved DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) for his efforts. You never know what people are capable of until you put them in a hole.

1991 GL1500 SE, 127,000+ miles, fitted with a 1999 engine & gearbox.
