If he stays home (he would be pretty unhappy no doubt), I may come out anyway as my cruiser and myself are built perfectly for relaxing rides such as this and honestly I miss riding with anyone.
My son rode with me when he was that age and would fall asleep once in awhile...we rode at night though.
Tomorrow we will stop every hour for a break.

I used a product called Sledpal that was designed for snowmobiling but worked great on bikes too. My son used to fall asleep on long rides quite often and I never worried about him falling off. Just remember the downside of having him strapped to you in a crash.

Great ride on Saturday! As a slow rider, I appreciated the opportunity to do a group ride with less emphasis on speedy stuff. I enjoyed the great lunch and it was nice to meet Lars and family as well as see others again. Look forward to a similar event in the future!
