Are we sure he's not just looking at himself in the mirror?

Nothing to do with the dragon, of course, be DEFINITELY a 10 on the fail scale.

AFAIK, the wife is in stable condition, the jerkwad driver and the 6 y.o. kid are still critical. Charges have been filed against the driver. It's a bad situation, I'm just glad he didn't manage to kill his whole family with one bad idea.

Perhaps a plague of locusts was next?

I saw the original coverage in the media a while ago and understood charges were laid.

That bit of tomf*ckery was beyond fail.

Probably better for an ape imitation.

Those look like the stock bars for a Street Glide. The hands are behind the tips of the fairing. I'd like to see him again through the next turn.

Helmet and faceshield are unusual types to see on a Harley rider (no pirate costume for once) but functional and fit the black & chrome theme well. The red "accents" tied on the bars and the stupid batarang mirror spoil the look IMO.

If I had that sweatshirt on then I'd wouldn't want to have my face shown in public either.

(Yes, even if I got it for free.)

I believe that is a metric cruiser.
