He still has competent enough riding skills for this type of a set up. If I thought he couldn’t handle his bike or was a danger to himself or others I’d be the first to tell him and I sure as hell wouldn’t continue to ride with him. I've contemplated someday in the not near future I might need the same thing if I’d want to continue to riding.

But come on Mr. and Mrs. Cool. Really that isn’t cool.

It's cooler than cool ice!

I hope that's a Kevlar top. I'd hate to see those get damaged in a get-off.

Nope. Different all around. Street Glide in the first and Road Glide in the second. Blonde vs brunette. Different NOTGNOTT dude as well.
