There is adjustments that you can do on the rear shocks to firm them up more but on my old Glide we would still bottom out on hard bumps when riding two-up and packed down with gear.
Max out the air pressure according to the book and slow down for big bumps or fork out the coin for the progressives since there isn't much else that can be done.

What's the worst thing that could happen?

Riding two up in the center lane of a six lane interstate during rush hour with 18 wheelers on both sides and one behind you when the frame cracks when you ride over a bridge expansion joint and the bike starts to ride like a rubber snake.

Frame failures are usually not immediately catastrophic but a tire failure from exceeding the recommended weight limit for the tire can be a major factor at hiway speed.
