Yeah it was a Dr. Cook. I just did not expect that sort of dramatic reaction. It was weird because I should have anticipated that but his sister who went a year without a ride took to the Dr. Cook like it was no big deal. Then again she largely treats me as one might treat a drunk individual, patient and like "okay she is going to try something crazy but she does not mean it and don't let her get hurt".
I had heard really good things about going bitless with a OTSB. One friend swears by them and will ride and drive in nothing else.
