some people are just being honest Realistically, who owns a sportbike and has NEVER taken it over the speed limit? Some poeple can be stupid about it and others can be safe about it.

We had a post a while back about the definitions of pace but I can't find it

to me..

relaxed = speed limit, posted speed in the corners, maybe a little less..

moderate = setting a max speed for the ride, and at or a little above the speed limit for most roads

brisk = 80 or so for the entire day, no brakes for the corners, but no on the straights, basically a Pace style ride. Just be aware when we say we are going to run such and such speed all day, we mean ALL day...

spirited = the street is your race track and go ahead and impress everyone how fast you can go on the straights

Nothing impresses me more than the guys that wanna go 150+ on every straight but then slow to the SL to get in the turn... not

At no point on a public road do I see a need to drag knees.. unless it was an emergency avoidance type thing..

The other thing to remember is my moderate or brisk may be someone elses relaxed or spirited. Public groups rides need to stay more towards the sane end of things just because you never know for sure everyones ability. Not to mention you can get a noob into trouble real quick and it can be a bad experience for everyone. My last "noob" ride I made the mistake of letting everyone go and run a certain stretch of road on their own, after telling them to be careful and run "their own pace". Had one noob try a little too hard and get spooked, off the road, ambulance ride. And another lay his down to avoid the first one.

Made the deal with myself that never again on a "noob" ride will I deviate from what I set out to do, regardless of how boring it may be for some.

if i know the road ill ride it hard, if its a new road or even if ive only been on it once or twice ill ride speed limit, maybe a bit over, till i feel compfrotable i konw what to expect from the road, if i have an experienced rider infront of me ill probablly just pace him, as long as hes not riding stupid fast for the road. I have fun riding the speed limit, but every now and then i need some speed so ill find a road i know with no cops and tear it up. i like being on my bike if its 30mph to topping out... i dont think ive ever gone riding and been dissapointed at not hitting certin speeds.

The Pace

If everyone in a group learned to ride "The Pace", then that's all the fun they'll need on a public street. http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=45767

Riding The Pace is, imho, the very definition of a moderate paced ride. Anything beyond that is a recipe for disaster for all, but especially for the less experienced riders who join the group. If you're gonna ride a public road like the track, then at the very least, just leave it to you and your buddies who want to do the same. Don't lead or organize such a ride, inviting people you do not know, or you have never ridden with.

CaligoneTx and his Forest Gnomes lead very good moderate paced rides. What would make them even better is if they taught the rules of The Pace on all their rides. Basicly emphasizing smoothness by taking it easy on the straights, and picking it up a notch on the turns. That's easier said than done, though, since there group rides tend to be large, and through no fault of their own, some riders will do what they want at the detriment to others. It's simply impossible to control everyone in a large group. Nevertheless, that's the difference between learning to ride in the streets vs. learning to ride in the track.

Something that works very well with the large groups is to split them up into groups of, say 8. Everybody knows the ultimate destination and the stops in between so they all still meet there and shoot the breeze. What makes it even more entertaining is when the leaders know slightly different routes.

There is nothing fun about riding in a parade of 30 bikes.

I've had VERY good luck with 5-6. We usually ride every week, same group, and pace depends on the leader. Rarely in triple digits for more than the time it takes to make it past slower moving traffic. We've ridden locally and the hill country without incident, not even a visit by the popo.

i like spirited rides me and a few others on here never see under triple digits on backroads, and always 189 in the straights.

to me its boring if i roll at a slow pace when you know in your head just how much faster you really can go
