I did have Ohlins stabilizer on my 06 R6. Maybe that's what I showed you?

I prefer to ride alone some days and in a group other days. You didn't have an option for that, so I chose alone.

I got in behind a bike this morning on 59 southbound, then on the HOV, and I don't think he was happy about me trailing him at all.

Usually alone, unless I am riding with Radar. We have rode so much together we both know what we are doing and pretty close to the same speed on the wings or sportbikes so it makes it more fun to chase or to be chased. I like chasing better to tell you the truth.

Riding with a big group is fun when you are actually "riding" because you can stunt and act crazy and stuff. But like Patrick said you don't ride much you sit around in parking lots looking like a bunch of posers.

How was MSR-H? You should mount a camera to record your rides.

Groups of 5-6 at the most for me..... Big group rides are way too much of a cluster fvck......I have a few different groups I ride with for different types of rides.

Most of the time i ride solo. I enjoy the time just by myself and my bike.. But i also enjoy riding in groups too.. big or small.

BUT, i can't stand riding with idiots that make poor choices when riding in traffic. ( we all know at least one person ). Personally i don't care if you ride wheelies or do stoppies in a group ride. Just be smart about it.. But don't weave in and out of cars and pull stupid that gives bikers a bad name or creates a hazardous riding condition for everyone else.

I refuse to ride with certain people i know becuase they are just retarted and would be bad news to ride with.

I'm more of a loner when it comes to riding, but I don't mind riding in groups, and do enjoy going on rides with my friends. Any opportunity to ride is a good opportunity, so I'm good either way.

But for the sake of the Poll, I chose Alone.
